Those of you who braved cross-country trips to visit loved ones this Thanksgiving holiday or regretted pulling all-nighters to get a jump on Black Friday shopping may be interested in a new portable device from Australia. It’s called the Re-Timer, and it uses light therapy to gradually reset your body’s internal clock.
The Re-Timer, which is worn on the face like a pair of sunglasses, emits 100% UV-free green light toward the eyes. The green light, whose wavelength is said to be one of the most effective at moving the body’s clock, acts like artificial sunlight. This in turn stimulates the brain and tricks it into thinking that it is a different time of the day. In as little as about an hour a day for a few days, the Re-Timer supposedly can help reduce jet lag, increase energy, overcome sleeplessness, and manage fatigue.
If you think Re-Timer sounds more like a novelty concept, you may be surprised to know that it was invented by a couple of Flinders University clinical psychologists with over 25 years of sleep research with backing from a number of studies.
