296: Using Light To Enhance Your Memory with Dr. Shelley James

Kwik Brain with Jim Kwik

How do you use light to enhance your memory? As the world becomes increasingly digital, you’re likely spending more time indoors with artificial light. Blue light from screens can interrupt your sleep, focus, and concentration. But can some types of light actually make you stronger or smarter? To go in-depth on this topic, I’m thrilled to welcome Dr. Shelley James on our show today. She’s an international expert on light and well-being, as well as a trained glass artist and electrician. Her TEDx talk, How Can Space Station Lighting Help Us Here on Earth?, was one of the top three most-watched talks the month it was released. In the same way that sunlight directly affects your biochemistry, artificial light can influence how your body and your brain perform. By understanding how to use light effectively, you can harness some incredibly powerful health benefits. Listen in, as Dr. James talks about how she used light to heal from a traumatic brain injury and how you can use it for greater wellness and mental acuity.

Looking At Your Wealth In A New Light w/ Dr Shelley James

WealthTalk - money, wealth and personal finance.

How much natural light do you get a day? And why is it so important?Dr Shelley James recently completed a Tedx talk about the benefits of light and how the space station lighting used by astronauts can help us here on earth. Shelley’s Tedx has been extremely well received, being one of the top 3 Tedx talks in the world in May, just 5 days after its release and now having over 85,000 views on the Tedx YouTube channel.On average we spend less than an hour a day outside and our body clocks are really struggling. The technology that was developed to help astronauts survive indoor life is actually now available and affordable. What does this have to do with building wealth? Our mindset and wellbeing is crucial. If we're not in the right frame of mind, then we're not going to be as productive as we could be. Sharpness of brain and your ability to remember things, are just two of many things that are completely mediated by your exposure to light.  Tune in to hear how Shelley launched a campaign for teens which reach over 2.5 million kids to help them to see how they can use light to be healthier, happier and more sustainable. Shelley also discussed how property developers can use lighting to add real value to their spaces, secure better quality tenants and lower vacancy rates.

Children shed light for Dr Shelley James on the need for simple, new and context sensitive content about health and wellbeing during lockdown.

The UnNoticed Entrepreneur - Candid conversations with entrepreneurs on how their business got noticed.

Dr Shelley James hosted a panel with a group of 11-13 year olds to give feedback on her recent edumercials about the impact of natural light on wellbeing. I sat in and was taken aback by their insight and candour, but also share here what they taught us about the importance of taking into account some simple truths about what we share and how we share it; regardless of the age of the audience.I mention recording and editing the podcast on Descript. I have to say I still can't quite believe what I am seeing as I edit text and the audio track is simultaneously edited...one has to see it to realize it's really doing this.  Support the show

Shelley James on maths, music and the magic of glass.

Material Matters with Grant Gibson

Shelley James is a globally renowned glass artist with a fascinating tale to tell. She was ensconced in the corporate branding world – working for the likes of Imagination and Landor – before an injury to her head, sustained in a bicycle accident, completely changed her life and perspective. After a six-year (yes, six-year) period of convalescence, she decided to leave the business world behind and study printmaking. However, after a trip to the National Glass Centre in Sunderland, she became smitten with the material and has set out to push its possibilities ever since. Always looking to collaborate with new people from different disciplines, she has worked with surgeons at Bristol Eye Hospital, physicists at Imperial College, contemporary musicians and even Sir Roger Penrose, a mathematician and philosopher of science famed for (among other things) his research with Stephen Hawking. And she has managed all this despite only scraping an O Level in Maths. Shelley also happens to be wonderfully articulate, which is handy for a podcast like this…You can learn more about Shelley’s work here: shelleyjames.co.ukSupport the show
