Difficulty falling or staying asleep and excessive sleepiness is often due to chronic circadian disruption [1,2].
Circadian disruption is strongly associated with insulin resistance and obesity [3,4,5].
Aligning with natural rhythms
and increasing exposure to sunlight boosts cellular energy production [6,7,8,9].
Circadian rhythm and light disturbances are a major hallmark
of serious mood disorders [10,11].
Your immune system is under circadian control. Viruses try to disrupt circadian clocks to gain the upper hand [12,13,14].
Disruptions of circadian rhythms are linked to almost every modern disease from diabetes to cancer.
Don’t believe it?
Google: “shift work” or “circadian rhythm” plus the name of a disease.
We are designed to live in sync with natural cycles

- discover how syncing to your local environment can increase your quality of life
- ﬁnd out what the science says
and how to apply it to your daily life

Below are some carefully handpicked products from our partners to support a movement towards living in alignment with nature and circadian rhythms in today’s world.
Blue light blocking glasses are an essential tool to prevent massive circadian disruption in our modern world. Wearing blue blockers after dusk is non-negotiable if you care for your health. Become part of the new circadian health revolution. Get the worlds best blue blockers from BluBlox now.
red and infrared
By Platinum LED Therapy Lights
Red & infrared light are highly bioactive forms of light affecting the functioning of your cells. The main job of these wavelengths is the regulation of repair and regeneration. In independent tests, Platinum LED Therapy Lights came out in front considering the price, power output, flicker, noise, wavelengths & warranty. If you want the best, go for their BioMax series.
red and infrared
The more time you spend inside, the more your body lacks the regenerating and energizing wavelengths of red and infrared light. This is where red and infrared light panels come in. EMR-Tek’s “FireWave” and “FireStorm” are unique, powerful and well-designed devices that offer versatility in application. Also check out “Inferno”, an impressive 865x300mm panel, new to the market.
Your eyes are the gateway to your brain. To protect your eyes, health and circadian rhythms, a solid blue light blocking software is crucial these days. Download and install Iris for your computer and rest assured that you have the most advanced eye-protection software working for you.
The pervasive light pollution in our modern world will compromise your sleep & health even if your eyes are closed. To bring darkness back during sleep you want a great sleep mask. BluBlox Remedy sleep mask is adjustable and super comfy whether you sleep on your back, side or stomach.
By Earth Runners
Regular shoes disconnect you from the Earth. Earth Runners allow you to be electrically grounded while wearing sandals. Being grounded gives your biology access to an endless supply of electrons that act as a powerful antioxidant with far-reaching benefits for your overall health.
Lumi light bulbs
If you struggle to find incandescent light bulbs for the day and red incandescents for night time use, Lumi light bulbs are a great alternative. These LEDs are circadian optimised across the visible spectrum; they are flicker-free and are low in EMFs. You can choose from the daytime and nighttime version.
tan-through clothing & swimwear
UV light is essential for health. You do not want to deprive parts of your body of the suns beneficial rays. Tan-through clothing and swimwear allows about 50% of UV light through. This way, you can be “naked” while wearing clothes. Treat your private parts to some goodness and minimise tan lines.
grounding strap “erthe”
You can ground any shoe with the latest invention from Earthling. Erthe nanotech straps easily attach to any shoe and provide grounding wherever you go. Erthe straps are used by elite athletes around the world to lower muscle damage and boost recovery. Check it out.
