What is light therapy?
One of the most important regulators of our circadian clock is light. Light stimulates our circadian clock via the retina of our eyes and “tells” our brains that we should be awake. Light during the morning, at a specific time and intensity, can provide our brain with the necessary boost for staying awake. On the other hand, light during the evening can distort our circadian rhythm, having negative effects on our sleep.
How does light therapy work?
Light therapy aims at the proper regulation of light and dark during the day via the use of various interventions/tools (for example: specific schedules, light-therapy lights, special glasses and computer/phone screen filters), based on the problem, the individual preferences and lifestyle.
