With November reminding us all to be a little more thankful and gracious, we were inspired to learn how our luminaries/lights might do a little more and bring light to those that need it. We quickly learned that November is Epilepsy Awareness Month and knowing that this disease can cause sensitivities to light, we were curious of the effects of Light Therapy.
The Epilepsy Society
recently released a study
that shows “that bright light therapy has a beneficial effect on symptoms of anxiety and depression in patients with focal epilepsy. Bright light therapy
suppresses the body’s production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep and wake cycles, and is an effective treatment for seasonal affective disorder.” Mood-Lights are designed to soothe and calm—perfect for Light Therapy and a great a great alternative to compact fluorescent light bulbs for people sensitive to them.
Inspired we immediately wanted to do more and bring awareness to the cause in some way, so we’ve decided to partner with the Epilepsy Foundation
and donate 10% of our sales on Cyber Monday
(which is one of our most popular selling days) to help support all of the research and resources this foundation supplies. Shop now
