If you work night shifts, then you'll know dealing with tiredness and fatigue is difficult – even when you've gotten used to the routine. Research has shown that a night worker who has sleep reasonably well is still only as alert between 2am and 8am as a day worker who has slept for 4 hours two night in a row. By working shifts, you're going against your body's natural desire to rest and recover during the night.
Do you suffer from any of these when you do your shift work?
- Wandering and disconnected thoughts
- Headaches or stomach aches
- Drowsiness during shift and inability to sleep after shift
- Inattention to minor but potentially important details
- Degraded mental abilities (including memory, decision-making, and perception)
- Increased distractibility and irritability
Working night shift can have serious consequences, as this lack of alertness can lead to mistakes and accidents. One study discovered that night shift workers are between four and five times more likely to be involved in a car accident.
If so, it means that your body is struggling to adapt to your routine. However, you can use light therapy to reposition your body clock, to enable you to be as alert and effective when working through the night as you would ordinarily be when working during the day. A LiteBook replicates the exact wavelengths of sunlight, tricking your brain into thinking it is daylight and therefore making it prepare your body for the “day” ahead.
What is special about the Litebook?
Traditionally, light therapy meant being sat in front of a large lightbox (about the size of a regular mirror) and looking directly into it for an hour. While effective, it was awkward, boring and time consuming. Thankfully, the Litebook Elite is revolutionising light therapy and making it quick and incredibly easy.
The Litebook Elite uses white light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to produce its light. Regular lamps have used flourscent bulbs, with are bulky, expensive to run, and emit harmful UV rays. The white LEDs in the Litebook mean it is much smaller than conventional lamps (just 2% of the size), and because the peak wavelengths of its light replicate those of sunlight exactly, usage time is as little as 15 minutes.
Fits into your hand, and your life
The Litebook's size and built-in rechargebale battery means it can be used anywhere; on a train, aeroplane, or simply on a desk or table at home or work. Unlike regular lamps, you do not have to look directly into it, you simply have it facing you at an angle. This leaves you free to get on with other things such as eating breakfast, applying make-up or reading a newspaper. It has never been so easy to get the light you need into your routine.
