At a Glance

Have you ever wondered how sunlight can feel so good and yet be “so bad for you”? That’s because sunlight, in the proper dose range, is not only very good for us, but we actually need it. Light regulates many functions in our body-mind and is recently believed to influence every function and cell within us. This process is broadly referred to as photoregulation. The timing and intensity of our exposures to sunlight and artificial sources of light have profound effects on our mood, vitality and function. Effects which we are only just beginning to explore and understand more deeply. In this Lab we will explore the areas that have been well researched and found to have significant influence on us.
