The light room opens
Do you get lethargic and tired in the autumn and winter? On 10 October, the light room opens at Student Health Services in Uppsala, where you can compensate for some of your daylight deficiency.
The change between light and darkness sets the circadian rhythm, which in turn is connected to important biological processes such as rest, activity, sleep and wakefulness. Somewhat simplified, when the days get shorter our bodies want more sleep. The idea with a light room is to compensate for insufficient light during the day.
The light room in Uppsala is open during the dark months during the reception's regular opening hours, from 10 October. You can't make an appointment, it is only drop-in at the places. Go to the reception, show your student ID and enjoy the light.
Turn up in your regular clothes. You will be provided with a white coat which helps to keep the room as bright as possible.
- Remove shoes before entering the room.
- Do not eat or drink in the light room.
- Each session is 45 minutes.
