You can be honest with yourself; the world is wearing you down. That’s ok – most, if not all, of us feel that way. One day a recession is at your doorstep, the next day a government shutdown. There is always something going on. Oftentimes you don’t feel like yourself. Instead of a self-assured calmness, your life is riddled with stress and anxiety. Something’s off and you just don’t know what.
Productivity is at an all-time low in all areas of your life. You’re not sure if this malaise started at the office and spread to your home or if it’s the other way around. Chances are it doesn’t matter. You’re drained and that’s all there is to it. The sluggishness is getting the best of you. You don’t ever want to do anything, except for staying in bed all day, most of your body mummified by blankets. What gives? Could it be depression? You’ve never been depressed. You’ve been sad at times, but who hasn’t? Negative feelings have never overwhelmed you the way they are now.
You mention your “condition” to a close friend and he comments on your home’s lighting arrangement.
“What’s wrong?” you ask.
“There’s not enough healthy light,” he says.
“Healthy light? What’s that?”
“Light that has a positive effect on your life.”
It can’t be that easy, can it? Can your recent woes and sluggish behavior be caused by the lights in your home? Yes – yes, it can. Fluorescent lights, common in most households, is unnatural, as it utilizes a chemical reaction to produce said light. This gives off UV radiation, which has negative effects on health (physical, mental, emotional) and behavior. Dr. John Ott, world-renowned light researcher, dubs these effects “mal-illumination.”
Your life is being mal-illuminated – and it has to stop. LEDs provides light that is au naturel, having no negative effects on your health, as it doesn’t produce radiation. In fact, it does the opposite; it stimulates growth. If you’re feeling a bit down and you don’t know why, it could be due to the lighting in your home or workplace. Many workplaces across the country are catching on and installing LEDs. Why haven’t you yet?
Illuminations USA has been battling “mal-illumination” for years in Central Florida. Let us help you stimulate growth in your life. Don’t let bad light shut down your life.
Innovative ways to achieve positivity often involves innovative lighting…
