TIPS for BUSY PARENTS: 40Hz LIGHT for DEEP SLEEP

As busy parents who are balancing the responsibilities of work and other priorities, we often put self-care on the back burner. We’re always searching for solutions that boost our health, improve sleep, and give us more energy. There is evidence to suggest that exposure to 40Hz light therapy can improve sleep quality and duration, leading to increased energy levels during the day. Here’s how:

  1. Light therapy: 40Hz light therapy involves exposure to light that flickers at a frequency of 40 hertz, or cycles per second. This type of light therapy has been found to stimulate the brain’s alpha waves, which are associated with relaxation and improved sleep.
  2. Circadian rhythm: Exposure to light is known to affect the body’s circadian rhythm, or internal clock, which regulates the sleep-wake cycle. Light therapy can help to reset the circadian rhythm, which can improve sleep quality and duration.

  3. Melatonin production: Exposure to light can also affect the production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep. Light therapy can help to increase melatonin production, leading to better sleep quality and duration.

  4. Energy levels: Improved sleep quality and duration can lead to increased energy levels during the day, which can help to improve your ability to care for your family. When you are well-rested, you are more alert, focused, and able to handle whatever life throws at you.

There is evidence to suggest that exposure to 40Hz light therapy can improve sleep quality and duration, leading to increased energy levels during the day.

It is easy to incorporate 40Hz light therapy into your daily routine – simply set up BEACON40 lights on your desk or in your living room. I keep mine on the side of my desk near the computer monitor. My lights are set on a schedule so they turn on for one hour each morning. They stay on while I answer my morning emails. It takes no effort on my part, I barely even notice that they’re there. After a few weeks of regular use, you’ll notice that you’re sleeping better, with fewer interruptions. 

 

Routine quality sleep leads to increased energy levels during the day. With more energy, I am more patient and present with my family. I experience faster recall of names and numbers. Making 40Hz light therapy part of your daily routine can help you be more energized to better care for yourself and meet the demands of daily life.
