Better Lighting for the Holidays
Did you know that LED bulbs can actually improve your holiday spirit? We know how crazy that sounds, but it's true. Anyone who has spent a winter in the northeast knows the importance of light. When you don't get enough sunlight, your body and mind suffer. That's why citizens of Norway and Sweden regularly adopt light therapy--where a UV light is shined on strategic areas of the body for a short period of time each day--to improve the depressive symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder.
With the pervasive nature of screens in our modern lives (TV, computer, tablet, phones, etc.) we are exposed to more and more unhealthy light--the kind of light that disrupts our circadian rhythms, mood, libido, and even weight.
So, in our homes, how do we improve our lighting, to improve the quality of our lives? One great way is LED lights.
In the past, LED lights were criticized for shining too bright, or having too much of a blueish hue. But this generation of LED lights come in a variety of hues and strengths (lumens) catered to the human eye and body.
The Nature of Light
LED light bulbs, unlike their CFL or traditional incandescent counterparts are actually really good for your health.
