Tool of the month: The right light

Tool of the month: The right light

Winter is coming, the days are getting darker earlier and that can make us feel a little miserable at times. It can hit people hard, with some suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which impacts concentration, personal effectiveness and energy levels. Not good for our wellbeing, and not good for business.

Natural light is always the best answer. A study found that workers sat by a window received 173% more white light exposure during work hours and slept 46 minutes more (on average) each night. But with shorter days on the horizon, a thought to other solutions is very worthwhile. The Independent recently compiled this great list of SAD lamps which provides light therapy for those suffering the winter blues.

We usually pick one great tool for you, but this month we encourage you to give some thought to the light around you and take inspiration from the Independent’s list.
