Bright light lamps in Studentia, Kuopio campus

Beat the winter blues with the bright light therapy lamps. They are available in Studentia Kappeli (upstairs, the same entrance as for sporthall). Doors are open at 7 am. You can also use the kitchen, for example to make some tea and to warm your breakfast.
The bright light is a 2,500 -10 000 lux. The light resembles sunlight, but it’s UV-free. The bright light lamp is medically certified to treat SAD (seasonal affective disorder). The lamps are offered by the Student Health Servcies (YTHS) and the Student health co-operation team of Kuopio Campus.

Here’s how to get the most out of bright light therapy:

  • Use the bright light lamp in the morning time.
  • Use the bright light lamp about 30-60 minutes each morning. At the first time use the lamp only 10 minutes.
  • Right distance of the lamp to your eyes is about 85–200 centimetres.
  • Don’t stare straight to the light. You can multitask with bright light therapy for example read a book.
  • You get the best effect when you use lamps between 5:30-9:00 a clock.

Blog: It is time for caring and listening to one another

The act of violence that took place at Savo Vocational College in Kuopio this Tuesday (1 Oct 2019) will have a long-lasting effect on our community and society. On behalf of all those promoting student well-being at UEF, we’d like to remind our students that no one should feel left alone with what they are going through, write educational psychologists Katri Ruth and Mari Tirronen in the Puheenvuoroja blog.
