Light up

Woman's Weekly (UK) - - Health -

Switch to full-spec­trum light bulbs. Life coach Amanda Alexan­der (aman­daalexan­der.com) says, ‘They make a dif­fer­ence in light qual­ity and mood lift.’ Al­though not pow­er­ful enough to treat Sea­sonal Af­fec­tive Dis­or­der (which re­quires a min­i­mum of 10,000 lux), they of­fer the full range of the colour spec­trum mean­ing a cleaner, sharper ef­fect. Stud­ies in Amer­ica showed stu­dents work­ing with full-spec­trum light­ing were more at­ten­tive, achieved higher aca­demic re­sults and had fewer ab­sence rates. Clean win­dows and trim over­hang­ing trees to max­imise nat­u­ral light com­ing into your home and gar­den, too.
