Working from home could be ruining your sleep. This light therapy lamp can help.

Light therapy might help your natural circadian rhythm and even stave off seasonal depression.

  • Night time artificial light has been shown to suppresses melatonin secretion and disrupt our natural circadian rhythm, negatively impacting our sleep.
  • Disruptions to our circadian rhythms potentially damage our psychological, metabolic, and cardiovascular functions.
  • The Aura Daylight Lamp can help restore your natural circadian rhythm.

Before the invention of artificial lighting, humans went to bed and woke up to the rhythm of the sun. While the benefits of the Industrial Age are numerous, our sleep patterns have been severely disrupted over the last two centuries. The technological age, with its flood of screens and distractions, has not made things better in that regard.

For those of us chasing a better night's sleep, though, there is hope.

The Aura Daylight Lamp is a light therapy tool invented by scientists and medical professionals to help restore your natural circadian rhythm and combat symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder. Many of us spend our lives indoors, shielded from the health effects of natural lighting. The 10,000 lux of bright light this lamp emits helps us beat the winter blues, circadian sleep disorders, work shift adjustment (like working from home!), daytime energy shifts, and even jet lag. The automatic timer is adjustable in 10-minute shifts so that you can control the amount of lighting you need.

There's a reason the Aura Daylight Lamp has a 4.4-star rating on Amazon. Pick one up today for only $94.99 and brighten your day.

  • What is truth? This is a very tricky question, trickier than many would like to admit.
  • Science does arrive at what we can call functional truth, that is, when it focuses on what something does as opposed to what something is. We know how gravity operates, but not what gravity is, a notion that has changed over time and will probably change again.
  • The conclusion is that there are not absolute final truths, only functional truths that are agreed upon by consensus. The essential difference is that scientific truths are agreed upon by factual evidence, while most other truths are based on belief.

Surprising Science
  • A phase 2 clinical trial by Imperial College London found psilocybin to be as effective at treating depression as escitalopram, a commonly prescribed antidepressant.
  • A different study by the University of Maryland showed that blocking the hallucinogenic effects of magic mushrooms in mice did not reduce the antidepressant effect.
  • Combined, these studies could lead to new ways of applying psychedelics to patient populations that don't want to trip.
