Lighting a Path in Lockdown 2.0
Let in the light!
A second lockdown feels a little gloomier than the first doesn’t it? The rainy days and dark nights are a stark contrast to the Spring sunshine and natural light.
But, don’t despair, there’s lots you can do make sure you get enough light in your life!
Lighting can play a huge part in how we feel and how we perform in our everyday life. It is known to decrease depression as well as improve your energy, mood, alertness, and productivity.
It’s thought the light may improve mental wellbeing and SAD (seasonal affective disorder) by encouraging your brain to reduce the production of melatonin (a hormone that makes you sleepy) and increase the production of serotonin (a hormone that affects your mood).
You only need to sit by a light box for around 30 minutes to an hour each morning to have a positive effect on your mood.
Chantelle Lighting are proud to work with some of the best lighting designers in the industry to be able to offer you lighting which promotes happiness and wellbeing.
This is a slim light therapy solution, with portrait/landscape positioning and cool white light.
A daily dose of this light can make up for a lack of sunshine, lift your mood, boost alertness and help you to feel more energised in a natural way.
The Lumie Desk Lamp has touch-control light levels, an adjustable neck for reading and task lighting with blue-enriched white LEDs for effective SAD light therapy.
Just as sunlight naturally makes you feel good, topping up with extra bright light in the winter months, or when you're stuck indoors, is proven to put you in a better mood and make you feel more awake.
This clock mimics the subtle light and colour changes of sunrise and sunset. A brightening sunrise alarm wakes you naturally refreshed, while a fading sunset creates a relaxing mood at bedtime.
A clean look and simple programming make Bodyclock Spark 100 the ideal choice if you're new to this type of light therapy.
We have a wealth of knowledge in this area and many wellbeing lighting products to suit your projects and promote wellness at home or at work.
Stay safe everyone.
