If you’ve followed me longer than a day, you know how special yoga is to me.
No, not because I am naturally flexible or I can stand on my head…
It’s not even because the poses are easy for me.
It’s because of the connection I receive while on my mat. The connection with my higher self, with my physical body, with my present life, with my mat, with the issues arising within me, and so much more. There are a lot of different reasons why I love yoga, but perhaps one of my most favorite things about yoga, is the freedom I have to practice this connection of movement in the comfort of my home.
Not a day goes by that I don’t roll out my mat in my living room, even if it’s just for a couple minutes, to move and feel.
Each “yoga session” is very different.
I try to keep my morning flows energetic and fast.
Midday flows are refreshing and revitalizing.
and nighttime flows are grounding, peaceful, and slow.
The lighting in my room is a huge factor in my yoga practice. I often talk about the 5 senses of outside sources and how they can not only affect your yoga practice but your life as well.
I always make sure my lighting is different at night than during the day. Why you ask? Well, let me answer your question…with a question…
When was the last time you considered your eye health?
Eye health is something that is often overlooked. It’s something that we take for granted and we don’t fret about until it becomes an issue.
However, we should be making eye comfort a priority, especially as we spend more time indoors and in front of screens. If we really knew how all those bright lights can strain our vision, we would understand that it is vitally important for our well-being and independence.
And not just during screen time, but also when you are trying to calm yourself down at night. Even if you aren’t doing a yoga flow in your family room.
It comes down to eye comfort and how that eye comfort can be established by light quality, which can have healthy affects on your aging and routines.
Never fear, this change doesn’t have to be expensive or difficult.
Taking better care of yourself is as easy as changing a light bulb.
Philips SceneSwitch LED light bulbs give you the flexibility to always have the best light for your daily activities. There are three light settings in just one bulb – flip your existing wall or lamp switch on, then off and on again to get to your preferred light setting. No additional installation required.
Philips LEDs are not only energy-efficient and long-lasting but also designed for the comfort of your eyes.
Philips LEDs like SceneSwitch have been tested and meet key “eye comfort criteria”. They have been evaluated for their quality and against factors that can impact eye comfort such as flicker, glare, dimming and color rendering, among other effects.
HERE ARE SOME OTHER GREAT TIPS TO OPTIMIZE YOUR EYE COMFORT:
If in front of screens (computers, smartphones, televisions) for extended periods of time, every 20 minutes, close your eyes for 20 seconds to allow them to relax.
Use quality light such as Philips LEDs which mimic natural light, so your eyes feel comfortable.
If outdoors, wear sunglasses with 100% UV protection to help protect your eyes from the sun. It’s helpful to keep a pair with you in your bag or car so they are always nearby.
To exercise and strengthen your eyes, incorporate simple, yet effective eye yoga exercises for a few minutes each day.
Schedule regular check-ups with an eye specialist, who will be able to detect the first signs of any eye conditions or diseases.
Make eye comfort a priority for you, your family, and your yoga practice but simply switching your light bulbs to Philips SceneSwitch LED light bulbs!
I think you will be amazed at how much that switch will positively affect your yoga practice.
