As natural sunlight dims with the approach of fall and winter, keeping your Chi energy “lit up” can become a challenge.
Full-spectrum lighting, which simulates daylight conditions indoors, is often used as a form of “light therapy” during the winter months. To a limited extent, this is considered good Feng Shui, especially in offices.
On the plus side, full-spectrum lighting compensates for low natural light, creating positive Chi energy during the day.
But full-spectrum lighting can be too much of a good thing.
From a Feng Shui perspective, full-spectrum lighting is appropriate during true daylight hours only.
As natural sunlight fades at the end of the day, your Chi energy naturally desires darker conditions.
It — and you — will be over-stimulated by lighting that continues to say “sunshine” while it’s perfectly dark outside.
So, switch over to conventional incandescent (or CFL) lighting at sunset to create lighting conditions more consistent with the dimness of the evening.
By bedtime you’ll feel relaxed and ready for the refreshment of a good night’s sleep — and another sunny day tomorrow.
