ZZ’s Haphazard Pro Tips on Winter Grad Life
Get good lights and turn them on. Most of you self-respecting graduate students aren’t waking up at 6 am (unless you are unfortunate like me) and thus are only exposed to 6 or 7 hours of sunlight per day, which is not enough to maintain sanity. To remedy this, build a ”solarium”in your house using full-spectrum light bulbs that simulate sunlight. They can be expensive, but not as expensive as a therapist.

HEALTH
Retirees bask safely in artifical sunlight
When he feels like it, Terence Bredin, 82, can put on his shorts, grab a straw hat and head to the beach to soak in some rays — without leaving the building where he lives. The computer and light system technology reproduces the sun’s full spectrum, without the harmful effects of UV rays — allowing people to bask without tanning or burning. The system includes a background sound system of breaking waves, rustling palm trees and tropical birds.

RECOMMENDED READING
On Bathroom Lighting
There is hope in the form of the full spectrum light bulb, developed in Finland to cheer people up during the eternal northern winters. Available in garden and wholefood stores, these light bulbs cost about ten times as much as an ordinary 100W bulb but last four times as long. This may seem expensive but when you consider that, in the US, women spend about $6 billion per year on cosmetics and that employers carry the burden of 10 million sick days a year caused by depression, splashing out on a few tasteful light bulbs begins to look like a truly bright idea.
