The light of the situation, we live in modern humans, is most unnatural. On the question of how this affects our well-being, says Acker: “That is, at the Moment, this field of research is number 1 in the sleep research. Therefore, the Nobel prize two years ago, also went to the Chrono-biologists.” Chrono-biologists owe their name of Chronos, the Greek God of time. You will examine the rhythms of our organism works.
we are Timed as we know, by the alternation of day and night. “Therefore, we feel sexy, too short a Sleep, as soon as the sun goes down,” said Jens Acker. The sun comes up, we’ll get a small boost.
Because this control for our internal clock and our inner processes is so important, the nature of special nerve cells in the eyes of a direct light-line into the brain. In buildings it is usually too dark. There is too little light comes in. And that has a direct impact on the well-being of: “The mood is less good, you are tired,” says Jens Acker.
The three most important questions that should best be solved in cooperation with an electrician, are: Where is the light? What is the purpose of the light? How bright is the light need to be?

And with good reason: “they have behaviour, compared with other lamps, a much better Dimming, without losing sight of the big power and can give virtually all the colors of the visible spectrum,” says Chud was. “The life span is 50’000 hours, i.e. 25 years, incredible.”
When you buy LED lamps you should pay attention to the color of the light. “If you want a pleasant color, put you on melatonin color. If you want that your lamp is in the dimming state is warmer, select a lamp with Dim-to-Warm Option. The result is like a light bulb, you just need ten Times less power.”
