The Effects of Natural Light in our Living Space
January 24, 2018
Research has proven that Natural Light has positive effects on humans and can make the world of difference for our mood and health.
Here are some of the benefits:
Improves your mood – It has been proven by scientists that natural sunlight boosts the serotonin levels in our bodies, this is also known as the “happy hormone” and improves our mood and prevent depression.
Helps you sleep – Healthy exposure to natural sunlight in the morning and more so outdoors helps your biological clock and improves your sleeping pattern, so grab something refreshing to drink and enjoy the view from your outdoor balcony to soak up some morning light!
Benefits your vision – The effects of unnatural light from computer screens, fluorescent lights and phones screens can cause harmful strain on our eyes. Natural light helps your eyes to produce dopamine, which aids in healthy eye development.
Higher Productivity - A study by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology found that employees working in natural light recorded higher levels of energy than those working under artificial light.
Boosts your vitamin D storage – Vitamin D assists in the absorption of calcium and promotes bone growth and has also been linked to preventing depression and other diseases and disorders such as: autism, cancer, diabetes, chronic pain.
Apart from all of the wonderful benefits, natural light in your home also eliminates the need to switch on lights, helping to spare energy!
Our spacious outdoor living areas as well as larger than normal ceiling to floor windows allow for maximum natural light in living areas of your home to enhance your health, productivity and mood. Another thoughtful design element that Blue Rock Village have incorporated for residents’ absolute well – being.
