Lumie Arabica is a mid-size lightbox, ideal for use at home to boost energy and well-being, particularly during the winter. Sunlight is a natural mood-booster, influencing body chemistry (e.g. melatonin and serotonin levels) making us feel awake and positive. If you’re indoors, a dose of bright light is the next best thing and is proven to put you in a better mood, boost energy and help you to feel more alert – so it’s a great way to improve your well-being at work or at home. It can also be an effective treatment for SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder).
Arabica was created by Lumie, the Cambridge-based light therapy specialist and inventor of the first wake-up lights.
Improves symptoms of SAD (seasonal affective disorder) and winter blues, eg: sleep problems, increased tiredness, depression, social withdrawal, irritability, mood swings, lethargy, carbohydrate cravings.

Lumie Arabica SAD and energy lamp User guide
From the manufacturer
Mid-sized 10,000 lux lightbox emitting cool white light. Use at home to treat the symptoms of SAD, lift mood, boost concentration and restore natural energy.
Bright light is proven to put you in a better mood, boost energy and help you to feel more alert. It's also proven to be an effective way to treat the symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder.
Light therapy is easy to fit in while you get on with something else. Position Arabica so that it shines on your face – you don't need to stare at it – when you're at the computer, having breakfast, reading, watching TV etc. It's lightweight with a carry-handle so it's ideal for use around the house.
Arabica provides 10,000 lux at 25 cm so start off with 30 minutes a day at arm's length and, if you need to, increase exposure until you find a treatment time that works for you. If you prefer it further away you'll need to use it for longer.
You can get your daily dose of light therapy all in one go or have several short sessions for a cumulative effect. You should notice a real difference after just a few days.

Our lights treat Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and winter blues, boost mood and energy levels and improve sleep.
Lack of daylight exposure
Strong, regular light signals keep our circadian rhythms, such as metabolism and sleep, on track. However, many people don't get enough bright light during their day, particularly in the winter. The short, dark days can trigger 'winter blues' symptoms like lack of energy, wanting to sleep more and socialise less.
Bring the light inside
Even a well-lit office provides only about 500 lux compared with 100,000 lux in natural daylight. Bright light therapy is a convenient and natural solution. Arabica is ideal for use at home and provides 4,000 lux at a comfortable distance, all year round.
Lights like Arabica are proven to boost mood and energy levels and are an established treatment for the winter blues and SAD.
