Don't be SAD! Linda Geddes’ new book is here to shine a much-needed ray of light on these gloomy winter days.
Chasing the Sun: The New Science of Sunlight and How it Shapes Our Bodies and Minds bursts with cutting-edge science from ancient solstice celebrations to modern sleep labs, from the health benefits of sun exposure to why the Amish get better sleep than us. It's packed with eye-opening advice, including ways you can ensure you maximise daylight during the winter months.
Did you know that even on the gloomiest day, it is ten times brighter outside than in your office? Or that light therapy is being used to alleviate the symptoms of dementia? Or that children grow faster in the spring and summer?
To celebrate publication of Chasing the Sun, one Caboodler will win a top-of-the-range Lumie Bodyclock Luxe 700. You'll wake, feeling refreshed, to natural light, with a fading sunset at night and a low-blue light feature – perfect for bedtime reading!
Lumie has been researching, designing and developing light therapy products for over 25 years. Their lights treat seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and winter blues, boost mood and energy levels, and improve sleep.
