Here’s something you should lose sleep over

Restful sleep. Sounds like a fantasy, eh?

People are busier than ever - work, childcare, Slack notifications or fitting in a workout.

Sleep is the first thing sacrificed as we try to squeeze in an extra hour of doing “something important” at the beginning or end of the day. 

Most people know that without a full night’s sleep it’s harder to concentrate, make decisions, or be in a positive mood, but there are more serious impacts lack of sleep.

For one thing, it’s harder for your brain to form new memories, so any new experiences or information that enters your brain has no staying power; that’s why it might seem like you’re overly forgetful. Lack of sleep has also been linked to Alzheimer’s disease, problems in male reproductive systems, hyperactivity, as well as various forms of cancer. 

The Nano-Lit Solution

Because we spend 90% of our time indoors, our bio rhythms and sleep patterns are deeply affected by the kind of light we’re under – normally the blue-spectrum fluorescent tubes. What our bodies really need is lighting that simulates the outdoors – the changing light of day – to match our circadian rhythms.  

Nano-Lit has created this exact technology, allowing standard fluorescent lights to be retrofit with a diffuser that causes the bulb to simulate daylight – changing in colour and intensity throughout the day. The result is an environment optimized for focus, efficiency and circadian rhythm maintenance, resulting in improved health, increased productivity and better sleep patterns.
