How important is natural light in your home? It’s one of the healthiest and most efficient ways to illuminate it. While we’re spending more time indoors than ever, doing things like playing video games or watching tv on a computer screen, having access to sunlight makes us happier and healthier. Most people would agree that having enough sun exposure during winter months keeps you healthy by providing vitamin D, but what are the other benefits?
Feeling foggy? Try looking out the window and soaking up sun to boost your alertness. Having enough natural light is especially important if you work from a home office because it will help you be more productive than an artificially lit one.
Boosts immune system
In order to find, react and fight off various infections or diseases that may attack our bodies from the outside world, T-cells play a key role in fighting these invaders. In fact it has been shown that sunlight helps boost the immune system activity as Vitamin D is created with exposure to UV light which wakes up these vital cells.
Increases your home value
Windows can increase the value of your home in several ways. First, they allow more natural light into the house which makes it feel bigger and brighter giving people a greater impression that their money is well spent. Second, if you have an incredible view than those large windows will let everyone see!
Endorphins are the “feel-good hormone” that our brains produce when we’re exposed to sunlight. This can improve mood by alleviating pain, provide energy and make us feel happy and well rested. Sunlight also causes serotonin production in our brain which is known as a “hormone”.
If you want to get better sleep, try getting more natural light. Sunlight slows down our body’s ability to make melatonin (that’s why we’re naturally sleepy at night and awake during the day). By getting enough sunlight in your system, it can set a steady circadian rhythm for yourself.
