lack of bright light becoming a health and wellbeing issue

Your body needs daily bright light to regulate your sleep pattern and provide energy. Often however, we do not receive the daily bright light we need to maintain a well-timed body clock and natural energy levels. The use of technology in our modern indoor lifestyles, and the darker winter months impact the level and timing of the light we receive.“Daily bright light exposure helps to maintain appropriate timing of the circadian rhythm which is important for maintaining a good nocturnal sleep and effective daytime functioning”, says Professor Leon Lack, a world-renowned sleep psychologist.Professor Lack and his colleagues have studied the ability to re-time the circadian rhythm with light at the Sleep Laboratories, Flinders University in South Australia since 1987. Following their research findings they have invented a portable light therapy…
