Lighting for Circadian rhythm

Ever since listening to Jack Kruse talk about Circadian rhythm, I’ve been trying to do things right as far as lighting. My room has a florescent light, and I’ve been thinking about installing some standard light sockets (and connecting them to a sensor and dimmer). I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about this the last few days trying to do it right. Incandescent globes have actually been banned locally, which have the lowest colour temperature (most red). I was going to hook up some red LED sensor lights for night time. Until I read this forum post… So no LED lights, and I’ll be taking that dimmer back I guess. By chance I have a 12v halogen lamp behind me (as recommended by jack in the linked forum thread), so that will be getting use.. Not sure if the glass protector should be removed regarding UV as shown here. So halogen globes are available locally, although they have higher colour temp than incandescent.. (from here)

So I think I’ll be using decorative incandescent globes as sensor lights for night time, and incandescent globes or if not available halogen globes at night. Sorted 🙂
