How To Use
Sit at an angle close to the lamp with your eyes open. While staying oriented toward the light, feel free to engage in other activities such as reading, writing, hobbies, and crafts, sewing, needlepoint, applying makeup or working at your computer or desk.
- Turn on the lamp and allow a few minutes for the bulb to achieve full brightness.
- The lamp should be positioned as close as 15cm/six inches but within 61cm/24 inches of your face and should be slightly off-center.
The light from the HappyLight Energy Lamp must be directed at your eyes; therefore, your eyes must be open to achieve the full benefit.
When you are feeling sluggish and lethargic, spend more time with the light, sit closer to it or adjust the settings to increase the intensity. If you experience edginess or are over-stimulated, as though you have consumed too much coffee, move the light farther away or reduce your session times.
