Hi there folks,
It’s that time of year again when the highly sensitive types among us who thrive with lots of sunlight begin to wither as the sun begins to fade. Fortunately Spring isn’t too far off now and we’ll be able to enjoy the return of the lighter mornings and longer evenings.
Winter can be hard (I personally find it really difficult), not only do we get less vitamin D, but the change in sunlight affects our circadian rhythm — the body’s internal biological clock that governs certain brain activity and hormone production.
I struggle with low mood throughout the darker winter months, but in January this year I made a wonderful discovery. I purchased a light therapy box.
These special lights are designed to mimic outdoor light, helping to improve your mood and ease other symptoms of the “winter blues.”
I’ve been using my light box now for over a month and noticed remarkable changes to my overall wellbeing. I feel more motivated, more energised and more awake throughout the day.
Check out this week’s video to take a look at my brand new toy.
