Lighting and a giveaway!!!

Table Lamp
Do you find yourself squinting to see the fine print or moving the newspaper into better light to see the words? I know I am!!! Could be cuz the big 5-0 is only months away (ew did I just say that out loud?) Poor lighting in a room, when you are reading, watching the television, or using the computer, can add extra strain to the eye. The eyes have to work harder to convey messages to the brain from the strain of trying to see.
Reaching for the "readers" or "cheaters" as some choose to call them is an ok fix, but often  the real cure is just better lighting in your work space or room. Although there are some very very cute "readers" out there these days! As we age, we find that we need three to four times as much light than we used to. That means one could have as many as 4 or 5 lamps in a room.
Knowing that aging eyes need a better kind of light and more of it,  to be comfortable, is an easy fix. It seems everyone is carrying lighting these days. From home improvement stores to craft stores, there is sure to be a style out there to meet your needs.
If you are like most of us, you still have the same lamps that you had when you got married.  For many of us, that could be 20 or 30 plus years. There are so many wonderful choices out there in lighting today,
like table lamps and buffet lamps and all the styles in between. You can find lighting that is not only practicle but pretty too. Lighting becomes part of your decor so, you owe it to yourself and your eyesight to invest in better lighting today.
Now, to help you in that quest to have better lighting, CSN Lighting.com is offering you, my readers, a chance to win a $60.00 gift code to use in any of their 200 stores.

  14. How right you are good lighting is extremely important. We still have some light fittings that we have had for many years, but all our table lamps are much more recent. I wonder why that might be :)
