Lighten Up

Lighten Up / MP3

Ab sus4 / C#


Things aren't right,
Without enough light,
I know,
The plants won't grow,
But, what about Human,
Do we need to let the light in?

When I'm there standing,
Among the planting,
I come to an understanding --
It's enlightening.

The light ray,
Has a way,
Of removing black and blues,
Like a dose of good news,
The light makes me shine,
... makes me feel real fine.

When the days grow darker,
I have withdrawal from the sun,
It gets harder and harder,
To find the fun,
So, I stand in the green,
And, lean...
Toward the light,
Helping my spirit feel alright!

Light therapy is a relatively new area of scientific and medical study. However, throughout time, many civilizations have found the benefits of light.

One of the ways your body processes vitamin D is through light and your skin.

People predisposed to "jet lag" find wearing special light emitting glasses helps their body-clock adjust to long flights.

And, everyone knows it's easier to feel blue on a gray day. So, enlighten yourself with some light! (But, please remember -- avoid sunburn. Too much of anything is usually not a good thing.)

In the winter time, you can hang-up some inexpensive "emergency / space" blankets. By using energy efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs, you can create your own little oasis.

If you have trouble getting out of bed in the morning, try putting a light on a timer and set it to turn on about 1/2 hour before you are suppose to wake up.
