Lanaform’s Luminescence light therapy SAD lamp will lift your mood during dark winter months
Autumn and Winter are two of the most picturesque times of the year; from the changing colours of the leaves to the first twinkling of Christmas lights, there is so much to see and do. However, if you suffer from ‘winter blues’ or Seasonal Affective Disorder, you’ll find it hard to appreciate all the beauty around you. With the help of a SAD lamp like Luminescence, you’ll feel back to your old self again as your body is tricked into thinking that you’re getting lots of bright daylight. This can also be a great help at any time of the year if you’re someone who does shift work or who travels a lot and experiences jet lag – by using the Luminescence light therapy lamp first thing in the morning, you can reset your sleep cycles and feel awake at the right times.
How does bright light therapy work?
The amount of light we can see is measured in a unit called ‘lux’. This is a bit like the ‘watts’ of a bulb, but it refers to what we can see with our eyes rather than the amount of electricity being used. Daylight in summertime typically measures at about 50,000 – 100,000 lux, which will make you feel happy and alert. During winter when we’re indoors most of the time, the light we are exposed to can be as low as 100-200 lux. This is what makes you feel sleepy, low and prone to Seasonal affective disorder. Doctors recommend that we get at least 10,000 lux of light exposure a day, which is where SAD light therapy can help. By sitting by a lamp that shines with at least 10,000 lux for just 30 minutes a day, you can make your brain have the same reactions as it would to natural daylight. This leads to more production of the hormone serotonin, which makes you happy, and less of melatonin, which makes you sleepy. You’ll feel refreshed, capable and ready to face the day again, all by using a lamp like the Lanaform Luminescence.
The Luminescence light box works at a distance of up to 45cm, so you can easily enjoy other activities while undergoing your treatment. Its simple and stylish design will look great in any room, while its easy-to-carry size means you can move it wherever you need it, to experience the benefits of light therapy whenever it’s convenient for you.
