Blue Light Therapy

Blue Light Therapy App uses natural processes within your brain to help with waking up. With just 2-4 minutes in the morning you will find yourself being able to get out of bed and start doing, rather than endlessly snoozing or swiping through social media.

The app wakes up your brain by stimulating suprachiasmatic nucleus, a brain region is activated by blue light and responsible for sleep to wake transition. Additional imagery triggers survival related neural networks, telling them you are safe and in a good place to be. We instinctively recognize these surivial cues:

Broad leaves tell your brain that water is plentiful in the environment
Images of rivers and hills indicate water and a way to see predators from far away
Colorful food is rich in nutrients
Friendly, healthy animals mean satiety and safety
Plants and flowers - summer, fertile season

Quick and easy - consider using this brain stimulation app when you need more energy and coffee is not available or is not fast enough!

+ Boosts MOOD
+ Easier to GET OUT OF BED
+ Restores ALERTNESS
+ Feel yourself SMILING
+ Improves MOTIVATION in office environments

These are the effects of your brain rewarding you with happiness for thinking it is in a good environment, which is beneficial to your health and safety.

These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA. This app is not intended to treat, diagnose or cure any medical condition. Always consult your physician, psychiatrist or caregiver before starting any brain stimulation programs.

Touch the screen to produce ripples. Move your finger to produce mesmerizing waves. Interactivity keeps your brain stimulated with the blue light and ripples prevent you from tuning them out. It’s like tickling your eye receptors :)

Use this app on dark and gloomy days to boost your energy. Engage yourself with a splashy tropical colorful light. Unlike any other light source, you can play with this interactive wallpaper.

Now you have a little piece of sky everywhere you go! Put this phone wallpaper next to your computer as you work and start the app. The ever-changing pattern of ripples will keep your brain from filtering out the light. Escape depression with an ever changing patterns of interactive blue and white light therapy!

Try this app after you wake up if you have a sleep disorder - blue light therapy has been shown to promote sleep/wake transition.

You can learn more about your eyes and sleep to wake transition using these terms: suprachiasmatic nucleus, Melanopsin, Melatonin, Circadian Rhythm. Maintaining good sleep hygiene is essential to your health and youthful appearance.

I hope that this app would help some people deal with yet another year of Seasonal Affective Disorder, but please understand that 200 lumen, white-light based backlight of iPhone may not produce the same results as 10000lumen dedicated light box.
