Welcome to YumaLite™’s blog

Here you’ll find updates on YumaLite™ as well as articles on light therapy and how it can help alleviate the low mood and low energy symptoms of light deficiency. Some of us feel severe forms of these symptoms during the winter and suffer from winter blues, known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). However there are many reasons we might not receive adequate light all year long; rainy days, working inside at the office, jet lag and shift work can also make us feel these same symptoms. Seniors commonly suffer from not getting the light they need, as do mothers with newborn babies who can be awake at all hours.

Resetting the body clock…The importance of light

A certain amount of sunlight is important every day for us to feel normal and healthy. Without enough bright light in our lives we don’t realize how much it can affect our energy and our mood.
