Needlite: Bringing Daylight Indoors 

Needlite are a small, Danish start-up who invented and designed a unique daylight desk lamp, which launched in the Nordic market just under two years ago. The idea is simple: provide the user with efficient work light and provide the much-needed daylight at the same time.

The Needlite has a simple, modern design. It is easy to use, either via the sensor or by downloading the iphone app. One simple touch allows you to turn it on/off, and change the brightness. There are various other functions too. I love how funky and modern it is!

But there are more important benefits to the Needlite. Did you know that many people in western countries spend more than 23 hours indoors per day on average, all year round? That is not enough daylight! Yet humans need daylight for numerous health reasons; including energy, mood, digestion, sleep, recovery from illness etc… General indoor lighting is poor on quality and never contains daylight; the blue wavelength is not present in traditional lighting, which makes Needlite different to other indoor lighting.

So whilst it might not seem very relevant to consider investing in a daylight lamp at this time of year, it is actually beneficial all year round. I am going to be trying it out further over the coming months and will share my thoughts with you in an update post later this autumn, but I can already see how it would be useful!

Needlite is sold in the UK through www.wellworking.co.uk at RRP £399 (although it is currently on sale at £359 at the time of posting). Check the Needlite website for stockists in other countries.

The Bedtime Tag

What are your worst sleep habits? Do you have a bedtime routine? I have been tagged by the fabulous Lynette at Reclusive Fox to share my bedtime secrets with you all! Here goes…

Describe your usual bedtime routine.

I don’t really have one personally. My daughter has created her herself one that includes me, but I don’t have my own.

What are your favourite pyjamas?

I don’t wear pyjamas per se, I usually sleep in vest tops (or a long sleeve tshirt if it is cold) and leggings.

What is your current bedtime reading?

Erm, twitter and facebook? LOL 😉

What would I find on your bedside table?

Nothing, I don’t have one.

What scent makes you sleepy?

Fresh bed linen!

What is your usual bedtime and wakeup time?

It varies because of my daughter’s additional needs. But generally speaking, I tend to be a night owl. I am NOT a morning person.

What are your top three bedtime products?

Erm… my bed, my pillow and a duvet sound like good answers to me lol!

What is your most common sleeping position?

On my side.

Do you have anything you like to take to bed with you?

My phone. I know, I know….

What is your worst bedtime habit?

See above. I have a bad habit of looking at my phone in bed!
