Once the clocks go back, we function for significant parts of the day with much lower natural light levels. For many, this can trigger a negative change in mood, with medical bodies citing shorter daylight hours as a potential cause of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).²
The constant flickering of candles and open fires can put strain on our eyes if used to light specific tasks. For studying or working, with many more people in local lockdowns, brighter, bluer light is important to help with focus and concentration. Daylight tracking technology within the Dyson Lightcycle range supports the body clock by providing the right light for the right time of day, as well as being flexible – from task lighting a specific workspace, to ambient mode, mimicking candlelight without the straining flicker.
