If you suffer from severe mood swings or depression, make sure to consult a professional, and do not use this device for self-treatment. This product has not been approved by FDA for treatment of seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Light - a natural energizer Today’s busy modern lifestyles demand peak performance all day long. Even the fittest person suffers energy dips, particularly when deprived of natural daylight, such as in an office in winter. Daylight is essential to well-being, keeping fit, and feeling energized throughout the day – just like healthy nutrition and regular exercise. Philips goLITE BLU mimics the natural energizing power of daylight on a bright sunny day. It stimulates special receptors in the eye to trigger the body’s natural response to sunlight. This helps you to fight energy dips, to feel more energetic, active and alert, and to improve your mood. Sleep patterns The human body uses light cues, such as those provided by the sun, to time certain internal functions. Properly timed rhythms regulate energy, mood, sleep, appetite and digestion. Nature’s cues no longer govern our modern lifestyle. Our day no longer starts at sunrise and ends at sunset, and working days are getting longer. Moreover, our activities often extend well into the night. Many people tend to get too little sleep during the week, which diminishes their energy levels during the day. Using goLITE BLU at the right time of day can help you establish and reinforce regular sleep patterns. Light via eyes Research shows that a special photoreceptor in our eyes is responsible for regulating our energy, mood and sleep/wake cycles. This receptor responds mostly to the blue light of the summer sky. We do not get much of this light in autumn and winter. Most indoor light does not provide enough of this essential color. This appliance helps you to be at your best by delivering the wavelength, color and intensity of light to which our body responds most efficiently. English 11 Winter blues Lack of light during the darker winter months causes many people to experience a noticeable drop in energy level and low spirits as fall sets in. These symptoms, known as ‘winter blues’, may cause you to feel low, listless and fatigued for weeks or even months. This affects both personal performance and mood. Blue light therapy is a successful method to fight these winter blues symptoms. It provides your body with summer vitality throughout the dark winter months.

Using the goLITE BLU When to use Knowing at what time to use the goLITE BLU is essential. It may mean the difference between feeling better in a few days instead of weeks and between experiencing benefits or experiencing none. Follow these guidelines to understand how light affects us and when to use the goLITE BLU for the best results. Duration Most people experience benefits if they use the appliance 20 to 30 minutes each day. It is safe to use the goLITE BLU longer, provided you do so at the correct time of day. You may notice some energizing effects of light immediately. Other effects become noticeable after several days of regular use. 12 English Indoor life and energy dips If you spend a lot of time indoors with little daylight and artificial light, you can experience the energizing effects of the Philips goLITE BLU very quickly after you switch it on. Many people experience a natural dip in the afternoon. The goLITE BLU can help you counteract this dip. Winter blues If you experience lower energy levels, an increased need for sleep, and a lower mood in the dark season compared to spring and summer, use the goLITE BLU for 20-30 minutes a day. Preferably use it in the morning to help you start the day. You may also use it later during the day, but do not use it in the last few hours before bedtime. If you do, the light could delay your sleep and make you even less energetic the next day. Sleep patterns -- Morning persons tend to wake up early in the morning and usually find it difficult to stay awake in the evening. If you want to get more out of your evening, avoid bright light directly after waking up and use the goLITE BLU in the evening. -- Evening persons find it difficult to get up in the morning and are full of energy in the evening. If this applies to you, you need morning light. Use the goLITE BLU within the first 1 to 2 hours after you get out of bed. Avoid bright light or blue-rich light in the last 4 hours before bedtime. Daily use of the goLITE BLU in the morning may help you establish a regular sleep pattern that allows you to function better in the morning. Note: If your desired wake-up time is less than six hours after your normal bedtime, do not use the goLITE BLU immediately after you wake up.This could give your body a signal that is opposite to the one intended. English 13 Recommended times to use the goLITE BLU Time to use goLITE BLU >> Morning Lunchtime Afternoon Evening Lack of daylight indoors +++ +++ +++ --- Morning person --- + ++ +++ Evening person +++ ++ + --- Energy need ^ Afternoon energy dip + +++ +++ --- Winter blues +++ + + --- -- The more pluses (+++) there are in a column, the more suitable the time. -- --- means: do not use the appliance at this time. Light intensity Use the goLITE BLU in addition to the normal room lighting. The goLITE BLU is more comfortable to use in a well-lit room. Adjust the brightness to a comfortable level. Allow a few minutes for your eyes to get used to the bright light. If the highest setting is too bright for you, start using the goLITE BLU at a lower setting. Increase the light intensity if you feel no effect after a week.
