Mindful Meets - Ep 6 - Neina Sheldon FRSA - Why light matters!
Show Notes

Do you feel down when the weather is bad, do you struggle with life in general during the winter months, do you just put it down to 'winter blues' and think there's not much you can do about it?  Being mindful about your how light affects you can dramatically improve your life.

In this episode of Mindful Meets I have a really fascinating chat with Neina Sheldon about light nutrition - yes, that's right, light is as important a part of nutrition as food and drink.   In our 40 minute conversation Neina talks about her experience with seasonal bi-polar, SAD and other light affected conditions, plus what we can do to improve light nutrition in our everyday lives to make us happier and healthier.

Neina Sheldon is the Founder of Make Light Matter. It's a social enterprise on a mission to make light matter, empowering individuals to live life to the full. It educates and connects individuals, organisations and professionals around light nutrition and supports them to take positive behavioural and environmental steps to increase individuals’ wellbeing.
