Light nutrition for organisations.
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. It presents a challenge for you as an organisation – how do you keep everyone happy? We invite you to empower your employees or service users to ‘live their light ideal’ with some simple strategies.
Some factors that can influence an individual’s light ideal:
Whether they are an early bird or a night owl, or somewhere in-between
The lighting in your building and other environments they spend their time
Where in the world they are spending time and its weather patterns
How sensitive they are to changing seasons
Their gender and age
Did you know…?
- 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
