Blue light to help switch off stress

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - City - - LIFESTYLE -

If you have been un­der a lot of stress lately, it’ll help to sur­round your­self with blue light, says a re­cent study. Re­searchers from the Univer­sity of Granada (UGR), in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the School for Spe­cial Ed­u­ca­tion San Rafael, have proved, by means of an ob­jec­tive eval­u­a­tion, that blue light­ing ac­cel­er­ates re­lax­ation faster than con­ven­tional light­ing. The re­searchers noted that psy­choso­cial stress, which has ad­verse ef­fects on one’s health, has phys­i­o­log­i­cal re­sponses mea­sur­able by bio-sig­nals. For the study, the re­searchers per­formed a re­lax­ation ses­sion with two groups of six stressed vol­un­teers each within the mul­ti­sen­sory stim­u­la­tion room at the School for Spe­cial Ed­u­ca­tion, un­der two stim­uli, that is blue and white light­ing. Bio-sig­nals such as heart rate and brain ac­tiv­ity showed that blue light­ing ac­cel­er­ated the re­lax­ation process, in com­par­i­son to con­ven­tional white light­ing.
