Light nutrition for organisations

Light impacts virtually every cell in our bodies, driving physical and mental processes that dictate our health and how we feel. How much light we need, the type we need and at what time of day is what we mean by light nutrition’. It’s individual to each of your employees, with a range of factors that determine their needs:

Their chronotype

Whether they are an early bird or a night owl, or somewhere in-between

Their environment

The lighting in your building and other environments they spend their time

Their geography

Where in the world they are spending time and its weather patterns

Their seasonality

How sensitive they are to changing seasons

Their demographics

Their gender and age

  • When we don’t meet our light nutrition needs we can experience Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and Winter Blues – nearly a third of the UK adult population do for up to half of each year – affecting our energy, mood and productivity 
  • We’ve become an indoor generation, spending 90% of our time indoors – contributing to an estimated 20% of adults and 16% of children being Vitamin D deficient which leads to a range of physical and mental health issues
  • Three-quarters of UK adults experience sleep problems
  • Our light nutrition needs can change across the day, week, month and year as well as across our lifetime
