Lumiram HappyMood™ Lite Light Therapy Pad
Sunlight is an essential ingredient in life, but many of us don't get the amount of bright, health-stimulating light we need - especially around this time of the year. As the days get shorter leading up to winter, we get less time under the bright sun which is necessary to keep our circadian cycles and health in balance.
Much more portable than our flagship light therapy unit, the Aurora™ light therapy system, you won’t have to think twice about getting your daily dose of bright therapeutic light with this practical light pad! You'll be able to bring this one with you everywhere!
Up to 10,000 lux of bright, white light in order to:
⚡️ increase energy and alertness
🌓 reset circadian rhythm and restore sleeping patterns
😊 improve mood
Plugin and use for up to 20-30 minutes a day to start feeling the energizing and balancing effects of bright light therapy anywhere you go!
You don't necessarily need to be suffering from SAD to use light therapy - anyone can use light therapy as an addition to their daily morning ritual! It's an effective way to get a boost of energy and alertness to get the day going!
This light pad provides:
3 levels of brightness up to 10,000 lux of light
Full spectrum UV-free Cool White LED light
A choice of 3 light intensity levels to suit your needs and sensitivity
A built-in timer (10 minute increments up to 60 minutes) so you can set and forget it
Compact size; carry with you anywhere: 9.5“H x 6.75“W x 0.75“D
To use: Light therapy is best used in the morning. While eating breakfast, getting ready, or sitting at your desk, place your light pad anywhere from 3-12 inches away from you, and to your side. The goal is for light to reach your eyes, without looking directly at the pad - it’s quite bright! Let it reach your open eyes peripherally. It's key that your eyes remain open for the duration of your session for light therapy to take proper effect.
If you wear blue light filtering glasses for screen/computer usage, we recommend taking them off during your light session for maximum benefit.
Try for 10 minutes at first to see how you respond; you should begin to feel a sense of alertness. If you start feeling jittery, that’s an indication to place the pad a little further away and/or to use it for less time. You’ll learn what your body needs over time!
Note: We do not make medical claims. Please consult your physician or therapist to see if light therapy is right for you.
Will Chromalux® work in ordinary light fixtures?
Yes. Chromalux® is available in most standard bulb shapes and sizes. Just check the max wattage your fixture can accept and choose your bulb accordingly!
Are Chromalux® bulbs dimmable?
Yes, all incandescent and halogen bulbs are dimmable. Always check product descriptions though, as there are some exceptions.
What is the difference between clear and frosted light bulbs?
A clear glass bulb will usually be a few lumens brighter than its frosted counterpart of the same wattage. A good rule of thumb: think frosted glass for general lighting and clear glass for more striking, ambient lighting. If you have eye sensitivities, we recommend frosted glass.
How do I choose between the Chromalux® collections?
We wrote out some of the key differences between the collections here. Let that be your first guide. From there, just find the bulb type and wattage you need!
Does Chromalux® contain UV?
Chromalux® incandescent contains a minute, negligible amount of UVA, consistent with most incandescent light bulbs. Chromalux® does not contain any UVB - the type of UV that causes skin tanning and damage.
What voltage do your bulbs work on?
110 -120V only at this time. Sorry, but our bulbs aren't rated for use at 240V or other voltages.
Is Chromalux® a colored bulb?
No; Chromalux® is a pure, naturally balanced light source emitting a clean, white light. The lavender appearance of our bulbs is caused by the the element neodymium, which is compounded into our glass and gives Chromalux® many of its magical color enhancing properties!
Which Chromalux® collection do you recommend for daytime usage? how about at night?
While all Chromalux® light bulbs could be used at any time (due to an increased soothing red spectrum), we find the incandescent collection to be perfect for night time usage, and the enhanced collection for daytime usage.
What does Chromalux® full spectrum light look like?
Like a cloudless sky on a crisp and clear summer day! Chromalux® bulbs "de-haze" environments, making your interiors come to life with enhanced color, contrast and textures, all in a pleasant and soothing way.
What is the difference between Chromalux® incandescent and Chromalux® Enhanced™?
Our Enhanced™ collection uses a halogen burner instead of a traditional incandescent filament. An amplified type of incandescence, the resulting light is 18% more luminous and slightly whiter in color temperature than that of our incandescent bulbs. There is no difference in benefits, just appearance of the light. Learn more about the different Chromalux® collections
I'm concerned about EMF. Which bulb is safest for my home?
Incandescence is the purest form of artificial light. If EMF is a concern for you, we highly recommend Chromalux® incandescent light bulbs, or Chromalux® Enhanced™ light bulbs (for slightly whiter light). Remember, the higher the wattage, the lower the EMF.
What are the benefits of full spectrum lighting?
Feeling and seeing better! Full spectrum light provides light containing the full visible light spectrum. Plants love full spectrum light, as do people and pets; basically all living creatures need sunlight to thrive, and full spectrum lighting strives to encapsulate that indoors!
Some benefits: improved mood, productivity, and enhanced visual clarity among others.
Are full spectrum bulbs similar to light therapy boxes? Will they benefit someone suffering from SAD?
This is a great question! While full spectrum light bulbs definitely help those suffering from SAD, they are not considered a standalone treatment for seasonal depression. Light therapy boxes provide a much stronger intensity of light and can be used only for about 30 minutes a day, while Chromalux® full spectrum lighting can be used without restrictions (like a normal light bulb). We actually answered this question in more detail. Read the differences between full spectrum light and light therapy.
What is the best or safest light bulb for eyes?
Chromalux® full spectrum incandescent light! Chromalux® uses neodymium glass to filter dull and harsh light, while creating incredible contrast between colors and textures. Not only will you see better, your eyes will feel less fatigued! For these reasons, Chromalux® has been a top recommendation for low vision population since the 1980s, and has been proven to increase visual acuity.
What is the difference between flood lamps and PAR lamps?
While both are perfect for use in either recessed can or track lighting, the light beam of flood type light bulbs (R style light bulbs) have a less defined edge than a comparable PAR light bulb. Flood bulbs are great for general illumination and covering large areas with light, while PAR bulbs are more like spot lights, with a defined and focused beam of light.
Do full spectrum lights provide Vitamin D?
UVB is necessary for the production of Vitamin D, and only very specified lighting units can provide the light output necessary for Vit.D production in humans. For birds and reptiles, however, this can be achieved through full spectrum fluorescent lighting, usually containing 10% UVB. Chromalux® bulbs do not contain UVB light, which is necessary for the production of Vitamin D.
