At its core, a healthy lifestyle is nothing more than a series of healthy habits. Incorporate just a few healthy habits into your life, and before you know it, you’re living a far healthier lifestyle than you’ve ever experienced before.
But how do you go about developing healthy habits in a way that sticks? We’ve all given various diets and exercise regimens a go, at best experiencing a few weeks or months of a healthier life before falling back into old habits. How do we alter our approach to ensure lasting change?
The main issue is that we see these healthy habits as short-term inconveniences. Whether we try one or several at once, we make them the focal point of our daily life, with the goal of achieving tremendous progress in a short amount of time in order to get what we want. But inevitably, we grow tired, complacent or irritated with this self-imposed intrusion on our comfort, to the point that sooner or later, we give up.
A healthy lifestyle is achieved through gradual evolution — not immediate and profound disruption. A five-minute walk here, a few more greens on the plate there, a little more “me-time” sprinkled throughout your week. These are the minor tweaks to your lifestyle that lead to lasting transformation.
It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the hype of the latest fads, the inspirational before-and-after images of diet and exercise programs — but all this marketing focuses on is the destination, not the journey. Yet without an enjoyable journey, you’ll never reach your destination.
With an enjoyable journey, you’ll realize the truth — there never was a destination. Your goals are merely side bonuses to what you really wanted all along: a happier day-to-day life.
By focusing on a few little things today, your journey improves. And the results take care of themselves.
LED Light Therapy: Part of Your Healthy Lifestyle
One healthy habit is helping people around the globe enjoy their journey even more — photobiomodulation (PBM), more commonly known as LED Light Therapy.
The science of Light Therapy was established as far back as the 1960s and 1970s, with most medical applications accomplished with low-level lasers. In recent years, thanks to advances in LED light technology, we’ve begun to undercover the remarkable potential Light Therapy holds for a myriad of common conditions and ailments.
Far safer than lasers, LED Light Therapy devices of all types are now available for home use, allowing users to manage everything from muscle pain and arthritis to depression and anxiety right in the comfort of their own homes.
As a healthy habit, it doesn’t get much better than Light Therapy. In just a few sessions a week, most lasting only a few minutes, it not only supports other healthy habits, but acts as a truly healthy habit in its own right.
For instance, say you’ve begun incorporating some exercise throughout your week, and you’re also eating a bit healthier — a few more salads, a few less burgers. Even if you’re not pushing your exercise further than you should, you likely have some muscle aches, maybe a touch of tendonitis from an old injury, or some flaring arthritis. Additionally, your new diet is causing some digestive issues. Light Therapy has been scientifically proven to help with all of these — noninvasively, without pain or discomfort, and with virtually no side effects.
What’s more, Light Therapy has been shown to help with mental and emotional conditions, like anxiety and depression, as well as poor sleep, headaches and much more. The right Light Therapy device can function as a healthy daily habit to ease these issues as well.
At the end of the day, a healthy lifestyle is meant to improve your quality of life. And devices like the Visum Light specialize in that very thing.
The Visum Light as Your New Healthy Habit
There are a great many handheld Light Therapy devices out there, but none quite like the patent-pending Visum Light. Based on PBM pioneers like Roland T. Hunt and his 1971 book, “Seven Keys to Color Healing,” the Visum Light incorporates the biomedical, psychological and metaphysical into its approach to healing. With one foot planted firmly in traditional color healing theory and the other in evidence-based research, the Visum Light and its polychromatic (multiple-color) approach is the most forward-thinking device on the market today.
As you can see on our Colors page, a large amount of evidence has been established regarding red, near-infrared, blue and green light — the four basic colors of Light Therapy. But where the Visum Light differs is its additive colors — magenta, yellow, turquoise, and white. While more research must be conducted on these additive colors, what we know so far shows a lot of promise, and we look forward to seeing what new information is uncovered in the years to come. The more studies show the wide array of applications for various light colors and color combinations, the more the Visum Light stands apart as the only handheld Light Therapy device medical practitioners and home users will ever need. It’s designed to adapt to the science — as well as your evolving needs.
So, we invite you to explore the amazing science behind Light Therapy and learn more about the Visum Light — one of the most effective and convenient healthy habits for your unique health journey. Did we mention our 45-day No-Worries Guarantee?
