It is thought that the lack sunlight during the late Fall, Winter, and early Spring may disrupt your body's internal clock, called Circadian rhythms. Circadian rhythms tell your body when you should be awake or asleep and this disruption may lead to the symptoms of the Winter Blues. Disruption of the body's circadian rhythms is also linked to the symptoms of jet-lag, night shift work, and seasonal time changes.
Even if you do not experience these symptoms, everyone can benefit from the mood and energy boosting effects of PHOTOTHERAPY! Phototherapy is a natural and effective way to get your daily dose of SUNSHINE and boost your body's sense of well being! UV-free lights with high LUX levels emit natural-spectrum daylight to help alleviate all the symptoms associated with the disruption of circadian rhythms. Check out these therapeutic lights by Verilux below! (I especially love the Rise and Shine alarm clock light!)
