If you’re like me and live somewhere that has limited amounts of daily sunshine during the winter (that is, if the sun even comes out!), then you know how depressing it can be to live in a house that sees about 2 hours of natural light coming through, with the remaining time requiring the lights to be on.
Now last year I talked about using a dawn simulator alarm clock to help you get up during these dark winter mornings, and I recommended using a daylight bulb so that it recreates the same colour temperature as sunlight. (Still highly recommend the whole thing - using it every day at the moment.) But what about once you’re up?
Well recently I purchased a few daylight bulbs to replace the some of those around my home and it has massively helped brightening up the place, instead of that perpetual dull yellow light you get from normal bulbs.
I bought mine from Ryness.co.uk as they seemed to have the best value, but you can also get them from Amazon and other specialist stores. They’re obviously more expensive than regular bulbs - but they’re energy saving, they last a long time and they will generally help with a better sense of wellbeing. A good investment in my opinion!
