“Turn the light on or you’ll wreck your eyes!”
That’s what I remember hearing from my dad as he flicked on the light after finding me reading in a dark room. It stuck with me throughout college and now as I have two very active readers. Through the years I’ve noticed that the right kind of lighting is not only better for your eyes, it’s better for concentration.
SmartLight by Verilux is the perfect homework partner
Now that I think about it, I am drawn to work in a room with good natural lighting. The room in my house I chose for my office has 2 southern facing windows and gets the most daylight of any room in my house. When I choose a ‘virtual office’ for the day, I choose a coffee shop or library that has lots of windows and day light.
When Verilux asked me to review their SmartLight I was intrigued. Could a desk lamp really help someone read faster, work longer, and experience better concentration? I’ve been using the lamp for over an hour now writing two blog posts and I can tell you, I’m in a groove I haven’t experienced in a while.
SmartLight – what’s the difference?
Here’s the difference between the lamp we have on the Twofer’s homework desk and the SmartLight.
You can see the yellowish light from the regular lamp, versus+ the “natural spectrum” light from the SmartLight. Which one do you think increases contract, reduces glare, and stimulates the body’s natural enhancers much like a sunny day would do?
Here’s what else I like about the SmartLight:
- Lightweight and easy to move from room to room
- Flexible gooseneck and 6 foot cord perfect for any desk
- White, contemporary design fits into any décor
- Bulb that lasts 10,000 hours
- Retails for under $40
