Boost your mood and energy, naturally, with Philips goLITE BLU energy light HF3330
Research shows that our mood and energy levels, as well as our body’s circadian rhythms, are regulated by light. If we don’t get enough of the right kind of light, our mood and energy levels can suffer. The goLITE BLU energy light with blue LED technology naturally restores the essential light signals needed to feel happy and energetic.
Light, health and circadian rhythms
The human body uses light cues, such as those provided by the sun, to time certain internal functions. Properly timed rhythms regulate mood, sleep, energy, appetite and digestion. These daily internal cycles, called circadian rhythms, sometimes fall out of sync, resulting in a deregulated body clock. Unfortunately, modern living has dramatically altered nature’s cues. A modern day no longer starts at the crack of dawn and ends at 8:00 p.m. Workdays are getting longer and many people face shift work schedules. Additionally, the advent of electric lighting allows social gatherings and personal activities to extend well into the night. These factors have diminished the body’s natural ability to regulate the body clock. Rapid traveling across time zones is another source of disharmony between the internal clock and the external time, which is referred to as jet lag. Proper timing of bright light exposure allows quick adjustment to the new time zone.
Besides regulating the body clock, light has direct alerting and energizing effects and improves our performance. Bright light therapy is also successfully used for mood relief, especially for seasonal mood swings.

Light is essential to how we feel
Research shows that our body clocks are regulated by light. Blue light therapy naturally restores the essential light signals needed to regulate our body clocks, as well as our mood and energy levels.
Blue light is the key
Research has shown that the spectrum of blue light used in the goLITE BLU energy light is important in providing the beneficial effects of light therapy. This is because special light receptors in our eyes respond most efficiently to the blue part of the light spectrum. Also, using blue light dramatically reduces the overall intensity of light as compared to bright white therapy devices. This reduced intensity helps to minimize the potential effects of headaches, glare and eyestrain.
The goLITE BLU difference
Our newest offering in portable light therapy is the goLITE BLU energy light, which incorporates an innovative design and advanced features to provide a more comfortable user experience. The goLITE BLU uses advanced blue light technology to provide the optimal wavelength of light for regulating mood and energy levels.
The goLITE BLU energy light provides:
A soft, even, comfortable light with no harsh glare. With a wider field of light it gives you the freedom during treatment to do other things, like work on the computer, read or watch TV. Its sleek design that makes the device easy to use, store and travel with. It has easy-to-use touch screen to adjust light intensity, time and alarm settings. It is easily portable and weigh just 12 ounces/340 grams. The goLITE BLU device produces no Ultra Violet (UV) or near-UV light which can be dangerous for our eyes and skin.
Combat jet lag
Rapidly traveling across several time zones creates disharmony between your internal body clock and the new external time. This not only causes sleeping problems, but influences your mood and energy level as well. If you stay for more than a few days, you may also want to shift your body clock to the new time zone. This will help you sleep better and be more alert and energetic when you need to. Because special blue light is effective for shifting circadian rhythms, your goLITE BLU energy light can quickly adjust your rhythm to the new time zone. One of the best strategies to combat jet lag is to shift your body clock a day or two before you leave.
When you travel east , start using the goLITE BLU energy light in the morning two to three days before you leave. The number of time zones you travel corresponds to the hours your body clock has to shift. If you are only traveling a few time zones, one day’s preparation is sufficient. Add a day of light therapy for each additional 2 time zones. For example, for a trip from the US to Europe, use the following schedule: On the first day, wake up an hour early and use the goLITE BLU energy light for 30–45 minutes. On the next day or days, you should wake up a couple of hours earlier and repeat this process. You should advance your bedtime accordingly. Once you arrive at your destination, avoid light before 10 a.m. local time (wear sunglasses) and use the goLITE BLU energy light in the midmorning to fully adjust to the local time. When returning, use your goLITE BLU energy light in the late evening for a couple of nights before the return flight. On the last night of the trip, try to stay up and use your goLITE BLU energy light as late as reasonably possible past midnight. On the day of the flight, avoid any bright light until after 2:00 p.m.
Since most people’s body clocks adjust more easily to later time zones, you should not have to use the goLITE BLU energy light when you travel 3 time zones or less. You should only need to use your goLITE BLU energy light for one day before travelling 4 time zones, and add an additional preparation day for each 3 time zones. You should not have to use the goLITE BLU energy light for more than 3 days, even on the longer westbound trips. For example, when travelling from London to Los Angeles, use your goLITE BLU energy light for 30–40 minutes in the late evening (and again a couple of hours later, if you can) each night, starting 2-3 days before you leave. Use the goLITE BLU energy light 2-3 hours later each successive night. When you arrive at your destination, try to stay awake until bedtime and avoid bright evening light (wear sunglasses) for the first few days. Before you travel home, avoid any bright afternoon and evening light and use your goLITE BLU energy light in the morning for a few days
