The Lumie Bodyclock offers a scientifically proven solution to the Winter Blues that creep in following the clocks going back.
Scientific Research concludes that waking up to a Lumie Bodyclock can help to beat milder forms of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), otherwise known as the Winter Blues. Bodyclock simulators, such as the Lumie Bodyclock Elite, work by using timed light to wake you up – as opposed to a sudden, loud sound. This leaves you feeling as though your body has woken up within its natural biorhythm.
The clocks going back leads to shorter, darker days, in which we find ourselves spending more time under artificial light. Lumie Bodyclocks provide lots of bright light and this, according to research, improves symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and increases energy levels.
The dark mornings can make it difficult to get out of bed. In addition, arriving at and leaving work in the dark can make the workforce feel unmotivated. Promotur carried out a study that concluded that workforce productivity can drop by up to 50% in the week directly following the clocks going back. This drop in productivity can prove quite a significant loss in revenue for businesses!
Lumie Bodyclocks are one way to combat this. Experts believe that using dawn simulators such as the Lumie Bodyclock and Apollo goLITE P1, helps to maintain the natural sleep/wake cycle and can boost mood, energy and productivity.
