In nature, life follows rhythms and cycles. A common cycle is the four seasons. Each year we pass through springtime and a renewal of plant and animal life. This cycle continues through summer, autumn and eventually winter.
Other natural cycles include the way the earth revolves around the sun once each year, and the earth’s 24-hour rotation each day. These cycles are well-defined rhythms and nature’s way of maintaining balance.
Like nature, our bodies also have rhythms – and they too are tied to nature. In fact, when working properly, our bodies respond to nature’s cues to create ideal rhythms. That’s why the way we feel changes with each passing season and responds to nature’s 24-hour cycle.
Have you ever wondered why your body needs sleep? Or what causes it to wake up? Or even why it gets hungry? These patterns are all part of how your body responds to its cycle, or its “Circadian Rhythm,” as it moves along nature’s 24-hour cycle. When functioning properly, our Circadian Rhythms create Circadian Balance.
Circadian Balance happens when we’re in harmony with nature’s cues or signals. We can get up early, feel great during the day and sleep well at night. Basically we are feeling our best; we are in our rhythm!
Some of nature’s most important cues come from the sun. But sometimes, because of work schedules or changes in seasons, we don’t get the natural light we need, and we may fall out of sync with nature. When our rhythm is out of balance, things don’t seem to go right, and we may even feel light deprived.
Philips has been working with leading researchers to provide the most effective natural lighting supplements to help people who feel light deprived. The result of our research, called BRITEWAVET Technology, provides all the benefits of natural sunlight without harmful ultraviolet (UV) emissions. BRITEWAVE’sT patent-pending technology combines specific colors, wavelengths and intensity to produce the perfectly balanced natural light. In fact, no other lighting product compares to BRITEWAVE technology.
