There’s a reason people take vitamin-D during the winter, and there’s a reason why you feel better in the summer when you’re out and about and in the sun. And so when you’re forced indoors by the weather, light therapy can make all the difference in maintaining a healthy and happy presence and mind. I recently teamed up with Lucimed, the makers of the unique Luminette Light Therapy Glasses, which are essentially visors with LED lights that give off the right spectrum of light to activate the body’s positive response to sunlight.
Overall, the Luminette glasses are pretty cool. I’d recommend them to anyone who feels a little blue, down or depressed during the grey winter months, and to anyone who spends a lot of time indoors, and who works third shift. Especially for the third shifters, because when you work a late shift like that, where you’re sleeping throughout the day, not only is your entire circadian rhythm thrown off, but so is your light intake. The glasses fit comfortably and ergonomically, and are partially customizable with the adjustable nose rest. The glasses charge with USB/micro-USB, charging fast, and maintaining a solid charge for several uses. Also, they come with a carrying case and wall charger. All in all, I found the Luminette to work as advertised, boosting my happiness level, outlook and perspective, while also boosting my creativity and the baseline of my mood.
