Does being inside leave you feeling tired?
Most artificial light sources give off a radiance which is biased to a particular color range in the spectrum. This means it is not giving off balanced vibrations and being in a room that is constantly lit by such a light can cause energy imbalances in our system. This can result in problems such as headaches, eye-strain, loss of energy, nausea
Incandescent bulbs which are ordinary household bulbs give off more red light than normal daylight. This is why these lamps appear yellow.
Fluorescent bulbs give off ultraviolet and blue light. These lights send out pulsing vibrations. Old lights may start to hum and flicker. They interfere with our own vibrations setting up a resonance within us and can make us hyperactive and irritable.
Fluorescent strip lights can also adversely affect your eye sight, and people who work under these lights can suffer from sore eyes. The blue coloring can make you feel cold, and all the colors in the room will have a blue tint. The newer generations of compact fluorescents are more efficient and longer lasting.
Tungsten-halogen lamps give a bright white light close to daylight in quality. These are powerful lights and good for general illumination. These blubs have an extremely long life and are more energy efficient.
Full spectrum lamps more closely resemble balance of spectral light found in daylight. Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) has now been identified as one of the main causes of many sleep and emotional problems. Depressive symptoms can be significantly improved within the first two to four days when a person is exposed to full spectrum lighting.
Natural light from windows and skylights in the home and or work place reduces eye strain and boosts productivity and mood.
