During the winter months our exposure to daylight can be limited and this can have a detrimental impact on our sleep. This brand new webinar hosted by Sleep Scientist Dr Sophie Bostock - The power of light: The best kept secret to sleep and health, will investigate how we can improve our light exposure to help improve our sleep.
In the late 19th century, Florence Nightingale believed that second only to fresh air, sunlight was the secret to a speedy recovery from illness. Nightingale revolutionised hospital design in what became known as Nightingale wards, with large windows. Recent research shows that natural light can be harnessed to improve immune function, reduce pain, decrease heart rate, lower blood pressure and even treat depression. Timed exposure to light plays a critical role in sleep and wake patterns. In this webinar, find out:
- How can light exposure influence health?
- How much, of what kind, and how often, do you need to experience health benefits?
- What can you do if you only have limited exposure to natural light? What are the alternatives?
