Benefits of Natural Light for Well-Being

Start Letting the Sunshine into Your Home or Business
with Sun Domes!

 

Do you live in a home that is dark during the day as the one shown to the left? if so, you are missing out on so many health benefits that the natural light of the sun can bring to your life through having a Sun Dome installed in your rooms-most any room in your home. This holds true for the work and school environment, also.

Just how important is natural light to your life? Psychology Today referenced a study that shows how necessary natural lighting is for your health and well-being. Researchers at the Interdepartmental Neuroscience program at Northwestern University in Chicago, reported that the detrimental impact of working in a windowless environment is a universal phenomenon.

A study titled, “Impact of Workplace Daylight Exposure on Sleep, Physical Activity, and Quality of Life,” concludes that there is a strong relationship between workplace daylight exposure and office workers’ sleep, activity and quality of life… It was found that compared to workers in offices without windows, those with windows in the workplace received 173 percent more white light exposure during work hours and slept an average of 46 minutes more per night. Workers without windows reported lower scores than their counterparts on quality of life measures related to physical problems and vitality. They also had poorer outcomes in measures of overall sleep quality, sleep efficiency, sleep disturbances and daytime dysfunction.

“The extent to which daylight exposure impacts office workers is remarkable,” said study co-author Ivy Cheung, a Neuroscience doctoral candidate at Northwestern University. “Day-shift office workers’ quality of life and sleep may be improved via emphasis on light exposure and lighting levels in current offices as well as in the design of future offices,” said Cheung.(Ref. below)
