Introduction: Intended Use The goLITE BLU is intended to help people adjust their circadian rhythms to provide mood relief and to have more energy. Read All Warnings and Cautions Before Using Your goLITE BLU Observe these safety instructions to avoid potential hazards that could result in personal injuries or damage to your goLITE BLU.
• Do not use this product where the light might distract other individuals and compromise their ability to perform essential tasks such as driving or operating heavy equipment. • Do not increase intensity by sitting closer to the light than recommended. Increased intensity will not improve response and may result in increased side effects.
• Use our provided AC/DC adapter (MW170KB0900B02) only. If not, this may result in increased emissions or decreased immunity of the goLITE BLU. • Do not place heavy objects on top of the power cord or the device. • When unplugging this device grasp the adapter directly to avoid damaging the cord. Never pull on the power cord to remove the adapter from the socket.

Safe and Effective According to independent ocular safety testing, BLUEWAVE light is safe when following the recommended usage guidelines. BLUEWAVE technology in your goLITE BLU passes ICNRIP/ACGIH threshold value limits at only 15% (light energy exceeding 100% is considered potentially hazardous). The effectiveness of the type of light in BLUEWAVE has been researched and advocated by leading medical universities.
Circadian Rhythm Imbalance When our circadian rhythm becomes imbalanced, the body produces the wrong hormones, chemicals, and neurotransmitters at the wrong time of the day. The results range from feelings of sadness to sleeplessness to lack of energy. Many people suffer from a loss of energy and mood that can last for a short period of time to more than a couple of weeks.
Using Your goLITE BLU Plugging In Your goLITE BLU Your goLITE BLU comes with a 9V AC/DC adapter with US-style prongs. Your adapter can operate on AC power ranging from 100–240 volts for usage worldwide. Use the enclosed adapter only. For safety and proper operation of your goLITE BLU, never use an unapproved adapter.
Positioning Your goLITE BLU Use the goLITE BLU at a slight angle to your face (see figure 1). It is not necessary to look directly into the light. • For best results, place the goLITE BLU approximately 20–30 inches from your eyes. Allow the light to bathe your face from the side.

Instructions for Use To begin using the goLITE BLU, remove the stand from the storage cavity on the back and place the beveled end into the hole also on the back of the device. The stand is held in place in both the storage cavity and the hole with magnets. Turning on the goLITE BLU Display Push the ON/OFF button on the side of the device to turn the goLITE BLU display on.
Pausing a Session Press the ON/OFF button, or press the MINUS button until the intensity reaches 0% to pause a timed session. Minutes remaining will still show in the display. Press the ON/OFF button again to continue the session, or press any of the 4 touch screen buttons to end the session.
When to Use Your goLITE BLU Because an imbalance in circadian rhythm affects everybody differently, understanding how it affects you is critical to feeling better. Knowing what time to use the goLITE BLU can mean the difference between responding in just a few days instead of weeks, or perhaps not responding at all.
Shift Work Use the following techniques to adjust your circadian rhythm to your work shift. Beginning a Night-shift Schedule Many people benefit from receiving a 30-minute burst of light before work and then 15 minutes of light every three hours during work. This not only increases alertness and performance, but shifts the body clock as well.
For more detailed information about using your goLITE BLU to help adapt to shift work schedules, visit www.LightTherapy.com. Jet Lag Rapidly traveling across several time zones creates disharmony between your internal body clock and the new external time. This not only causes problems with sleeping, but influences mood and energy as well.

However, you should not wear tinted glasses or sunglasses when using the goLITE. Are there any major side effects? The goLITE BLU is safe when used according to recommendations.
