4 Ways That Natural Light In Your Home Affects Your Mood
Did you know that natural light can drastically improve your mood and your overall health? Just the aspect of having more sunshine in your day can make a difference in how you feel and how you act! Here at Bay Glass and Window, we have been fans of bringing natural light inside your home for decades. The beautiful Florida sunshine waking you up in the morning or the golden sunset glow flooding in while you cook dinner couldn’t be more peaceful and soothing – even while facing the chaos and busyness our days can sometimes bring. Are you interested in seeing how just adding some more natural light inside your home can benefit your livelihood?
Here are 4 ways we have found:
- Natural sunlight boosts your body’s vitamin D. That’s right! Getting ready by a window in the morning can be just another form of taking your vitamins. What a great way to start the day!
- Sunlight wards off depression. Sunlight is proven to work to uplift our spirts and energize us from the inside, out. Dark spaces have proven to only fuel the sad and depressing feelings. If you are in need of a boost in your daily mood – more sunlight may be the answer.
- Natural light improves sleeping habits. The more natural light that one receives, the better their sleep tends to be at night says a study done in 2014. Also, waking up gradually with the light from the sun can be a better way than being suddenly awoken from an alarm.
- Having more sources of natural lighting can reduce health risks that can come with too much exposure to fluorescent lighting. We all have heard about the effects of these lights on our systems. Any way to naturally enhance our space is always going to be better for our health and our moods than artificially doing so.
So now that we know all of this, how can we implement it? Adding natural lighting to your space may be as easy as opening your blinds more often, or it may mean getting some upgrades done to add more windows where they are lacking. If you have rooms in your home that don’t have a source of natural light, then it may be beneficial to explore the options in adding one. We have a free quote for Tampa Bay window installations here!
