Light is a major influencer on the setting of our daily rhythms and moving outside of our established daylight cycle can be difficult.
The use of artificial bright light is one option that has been shown to be an effective method to make this adjustment less disruptive the body’s established rhythm. Bright light therapy, when used properly and at the right time of the day, can help to reorient your internal “body clock” to the desired cycle making the adjustment more tolerable.
