We all know letting more natural light into our home, decreases our reliance on electric lights, but did you realise you’re making yourself more healthy at the same time?
While many people are well aware of the dangers of too much exposure to sunlight while outside, not so many are aware of the beneficial aspects of short periods of exposure to natural light.
In fact, enjoying the daylight from time to time can make a big difference in how people feel, think, and perform! The difficulty today, of course, especially here in Australia is that the sunlight we are exposed to while outside can be harmful to our skin. However, with a bit of creative thinking, our bodies and our minds can still benefit from the joys and heath benefits of sunlight, whilst inside!
In fact many businesses, are investing heavily into developing working environments that can bring us close to nature, filled with planting and natural light. All behind the safety of specially designed and UV protected Skylights & Glazing. All because they know if their employees have the chance to enjoy natural light while they work, they are less prone to negative emotions, are more focused on tasks, are healthier in general are more productive and happy with their work. All of which, of course, affects their bottom line.
However, away from the work environment, those of us at home can still employ these same techniques without having to invest a fortune. Imagine a home where our children are more productive, where your whole family feel happier and, in general, healthier too! It’s not surprising that so many Australians are keen to develop that ‘bringing the outside in’ feeling that so many design and DIY shows are telling us about.
The good news is, you don’t need a whole demolition team or a team of design experts to help improve your home by bringing in more natural light and transforming, dull into dazzling!
