Your body clock has effects on your mood, energy and sleep, and it is found by the middle of your brain. This is the hub that tells you when to be alert, wide awake, napping, and it uses illumination to regulate your energy, mood and sleep cycles. If you fight with these cycles, your body clock won't be responding properly to ordinary light signals. When your body clock does not get the right sort of light, it can cause you to feel knackered and moody. The M2 is straightforward to use and most people notice a alteration in only a few days. Your frame of mind and vigor levels will improve, and you can like sleeping again.

I latterly upgraded to the M2, but I first acquired the Apollo P1 several winters gone, and it works wonders for me. I doze well now, and I have vigor in the day, not to mention healthier temper strength.

Just ignore it! I'm a physicist and the blue light that the Philips goLITE M2 emits is a part of the visible spectrum. Remember that blue light isn't right next to the UV spectrum. Blue is next to violet, and violet is next to UV. Furthermore, the people who target this product seem to dismiss the undeniable fact that a regular ten thousand lux light box produces an identical quantity of blue light as these lights do, therefore they would be just as "dangerous." And there hasn't been any eye damage found from using those. Since all white light contains blue radiance, are we meant to be twitchy about turning on our lights round the house? It is obsurd.

Scientists learn by studying the extremes. Is this intended to resemble real life? No, it is not. But it helps scientists understand processes. Anything in an extreme amount is likely to be unhealthy. I am certain that if I drank five gallons of milk each day for a sustained period that I might have some harmful symptoms! Maybe by trying my GoLITE for ten mins every day in the winter I am getting the same quantity of light ( and blue light ) as I would get in the summer naturally.

Do not be spooked. Bear in mind that there has been no signal that using these lights therapeutically causes any eye damage. Rather the in contrast, I would presume that my body is much more healthy for having used them. Sleep deprivation is nasty tough on the body.

Science is created slowly thru a web of studies, not some random study that is deformed by those misinformed and used to frighten the general public.

Now, on to the M2.. As I mentioned before, i have owned the P1 and then recently upgraded to the M2. Both models are tiny and lightweight, and i have had no trouble with eyestrain ( using 100% power ). I can easily write or work on the computer, or eat breakfast, while I'm using the lights.

-It is cordless, so you can take it anywhere round the house or elsewhere and do not need to worry about finding an outlet.

Disadvantages of the M2 :
-It is a little heavier, due to the battery. I do not believe this adds any inconvenience , however , as it is still plenty light.

But the cordless feature is pretty much the only benefit of getting the M2 ( or P2 for that matter ). So, if you do not mind having to plug it in, then save a little money and get a used P1. LEDs last forever so you will not need to stress about the lights burning out.

as far as gauging the utilization of light therapy generally, i have found it to be really useful to me. It's used by me generally in the fall and spring when the sunset / sunrise times are changing the most ( I live at the 45th parallel ). My body clock seems to get thrown off by the fast change. I'll also use it at other times in the year if i am having insomnia or depression. I find Apollo's assessment site extraordinarily helpful. When i am having trouble sleeping at night or staying awake in the day I am going to go take their assessment and it will tell me when to use the Phillips GoLite M2 and for how long. I have never had it be wrong. It's always helped me get back on a good circadian rhythm.
