Put simply, Casper's Glow Lights – a range of small, stylish, and super minimal devices – emit warm light in a bid to mimic the rising and setting of the sun. But why, we hear you ask?
Well, historically, humans relied on the effects of the sun on their circadian rhythm to wake them naturally, a process which has been proven to be less stressful both mentally and physically. Similar principles apply for falling asleep, where a natural decrease in light encourages humans to unwind and fall asleep gradually, as opposed to simply turning off the lights and expecting to fall asleep instantly.
Casper's Glow Lights aim to capitalise on the positive impact of light on the brain when waking up and falling asleep. Research driven lighting programmes encourage users to take up to 45 minutes to wake up, or fall asleep. Plus, its dim light is just what you need to guide you through the darkness should you need the toilet in the night. Yes, Casper's Glow Lights are wireless, so it's super easy to pick them up and carry them around your home, should you need to.
Available in a single, or double, pack, Casper's Glow Lights are designed with singles and couples in mind. And if, after 30 days, you decide is not for you, rest assured that you can return your devices as part of Casper's 30 day risk free trial.
