    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Have you seen the sun lately?

It has been dreary weather after dreary weather in Duluth. I am sometimes at loggerheads with myself when it comes to deciding what to wear when the weather forecast reads like “sunny in the morning, rain in the afternoon, icy winds and non-stop cold in the early evening“! Not to despair, next week it’s expected to be sunny – at some point late in the week. In the meantime, the challenge is to stay as warm and dry as possible! I have slowly started to resurface my winter coats and gear as fall season seems to have lasted as long as snow in the Sahara. As I miss the bright sun more and more, I am reminded of the Bright Lights program run by the CSS WellU office.

Located throughout the library on the Duluth Main Campus, bright lights are marked by a bright light sign. Bright Lights provide a measured amount of balanced spectrum light equivalent to standing outdoors on a clear spring day. This has been shown to help regulate sleep/wake cycles. For more information please refer to http://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/light-therapy/home/ovc-20197416

Students, faculty, and staff can utilize these at no cost and I am slowly contemplating checking out one! Hopefully the sun comes out soon and the wind is calm…
