Simon the Rooster vs. The Philips Wake Up Lamp

In hopes of proving that the function of the Philips Wake Up Lamp works in helping to coax the body awake while regulating sleeping patterns with gradually fading light, these folks decided to wrangle a couple of participants, Simon the Rooster and a Philips Wake Up lamp, to participate in a little test.

The point of the study was simply this: Could a Wake Up Lamp make Simon crow before the sun’s actual rise? So, Simon’s coop was outfitted with some cameras, and a single Wake Up Lamp… he was then lulled off to sleep in preparation of his approaching earlier than normal morning rise. At 3am the lamp gradually faded in until it reached its maximum brightness, yielding one crowing rooster! Success! The enthusiasm toward the hitch-free experiment is felt as Simon continues to crow into the hours of the early morning.

Here’s hoping that Simon’s Circadian rhythms and sleeping patterns have since been restored!

Combat S.A.D with the HappyLight Full Spectrum Light Therapy System

As we move toward the fall and winter months, the amount of natural light available for our bodies to absorb is drastically reduced which can have a significantly negative effect on nearly 20% of the worlds population. Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD, occurs when our bodies are deprived of the full spectrum light they require to function properly. This happens largely in more Northern regions of the world where the seasonal change is much more notable. The symptoms associated with S.A.D. include disturbed sleep patterns, a lack of motivation, listlessness and overall depression. The will to perform simple tasks is depleted and even getting out of bed seems pointless for many. Seasonal Affective Disorder has an adverse effect on our bodies and psyche, disturbing Circadian rhythms and sending perfectly mentally healthy people into a lethargic and depressed state.

But there is something you can do to reverse the damaging effects of SAD, without having to resort to the use of medication. Since S.A.D. occurs upon the reduction of sunlight available for our bodies to absorb, doesn’t it just make sense to find a way to replace that source during the darker months? With the HappyLight Full Spectrum Light Therapy System you can effectively combat Seasonal Affective Disorder and reclaim your life, while restoring your natural Circadian rhythms and positive sleep patterns.

The HappyLight Full Spectrum Light Therapy System (HPLD) by Verilux effectively delivers 10,000 LUX of Full Spectrum Daylight, providing your body with the light it needs to activate your natural mood enhancers.
