Re-Timer – Light Therapy Glasses

Do you find that the Winter season brings with it its fair share of blues? Perhaps even depression? If so, some light therapy
glasses may help you!

Every Friday I share one of my favourite finds of the week — a website, tool or an app that has impressed me.

My Friday Favourite this week is Re-Timer – Light Therapy Glasses.

What is it?

The Re-Timer headset is a set of portable light therapy glasses that can help relieve the symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and jet-lag and help restore healthy sleep patterns.

How much does it cost?

The Re-Timer Light Therapy Glasses cost £179.

Light Therapy Glasses for SAD

For many years, I have struggled with the changing of seasons around Winter time.

Here in the UK, we don’t get a lot of sunlight, and the days are dark and long. I’ve found this can lead to low mood and even depression.

If you’ve ever experienced Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) then you’ll know how powerful lightboxes can be for improving your energy levels and mood.

I use a lightbox on my desk, but the challenge is — when I want to move around, I’m not getting the light therapy that I need.

I’ve shared a number of mental health resources for business owners before now, but one gadget that has really helped me has been the Re-Timer Light Therapy Glasses.

Re-Timer fits around your head (and can, in fact, fit over normal spectacles) and then beam a green light into your eyes.

While I get some funny looks from the postman when I answer the door in my Re-Timer glasses, it’s a small price to pay for the benefits Re-Timer brings me.

Re-Timer emits 500 Lux of energy at your eye’s surface.

This green light has been shown to help your body to increase energy and improve your mood.

Given Green Light is so effective, 500 Lux at the eye is as effective as a 10,000 Lux white light box (at a distance of 3ft from the eye).

Re-Timer can also be useful for helping your sleep patterns.

I used Re-Timer to tackle jet lag when returning from the USA last year, and while I got some funny looks while wearing the Re-Timer headset in the British Airways Business Cabin, it certainly helped me adjust to the time difference when I was back home.
