full spectrum light bulb with boxSaving energy is important to the environment. Even the government is starting to get on board, recently passing a bill that will phase out incandescent light bulbs by the year 2014. And the buzz is that your energy bills will drop by approximately 70 percent from simply switching light bulb types.

Gives a whole new meaning to "changing a light bulb," doesn't it?

It seems to me that if I can save that much on my energy bill, then perhaps I should be looking for another type of bulb before the year 2014 comes around.

Right now, we use the "daylight" bulbs that are supposed to make your lighting resemble natural light. The bulbs are light blue, not white or clear. Somehow, it just makes me feel more centered and balanced to be bathed in light that imitates the outdoors, and I hate to give that up.

Now -- thanks to Dr. Mercola -- there is a full spectrum (same deal as the daylight bulb; imitates sunlight) fluorescent bulb available that lasts longer than the incandescent bulbs and uses low energy. Sign me up! Health benefits, a lower energy bill and environmental friendliness: who could ask for more?

And changing a light bulb is probably one of the easiest DIY projects you can do!
