More Bright Lamps for me

My problem in winter months is I don't gt enough sunlight and get the good UV in my system. Well, who wants to be outside when the temperature is below freezing, I don't, and I do supper from winter depression. What's way to get an easy the feel good effect but to buy floor lamps with UV light bulbs on them? Yes they are pricey. However, I can't stand being depressed in winter months. It's worth the money, in my opinion. I educate my children at home, and I don't have time to be downhearted. I already have plenty of daylight fluorescent light, but I heard the flickering have a bad effect too.

I can't seem to win these days. To save in electric bill, I switched to a fluorescent bulb, then there is the affect of flickering. I like all the dark part of my house to be well lit during the gloomy days with lamps. I wonder what is the effect of light-emitting diode (LED) to our health? I know they already make LED bulbs, but are they bright enough? I'd better go to my local hardware store and check this out. I can't do it today because we are having snow storm, which is making house very dark at this moment. I can really use UV lighting right now...ugh.
