In a previous post, I talked about the use of light therapy to boost energy, regulate sleep and prevent winter blues or seasonal affective disorder (SAD). I recently learned that scientists in Italy have developed a skylight that imitates the sun in a clear blue sky. It reproduces real sushine!
The light is called Coelux. It brings natural daylight to rooms with no windows. It’s an ideal solution to “iceberg” homes, apartments or structures with underground living spaces. It can bring a pleasant atmosphere as more people experience the sky and feel the warmth of the sunshine in their basements. This is a relatively new invention. It will be interesting to find out the health benefits of the light and its impact on stress, sleep and the winter blues.
To see the light in action, check out the video clip below.
