Why Bringing Natural Light Into Your Home Is Good For You
More than ever people are becoming at one with nature! Let’s face it, there isn’t much more we’ve been able to do in the last 12 months!
With the pandemic restrictions easing, going outside for walks has remained and very much considered the world’s safe space, which has allowed us to reconnect with nature more than ever (and get us away from the house!)
The DIY industry has BOOMED! Inside and out, our homes became our everything.
We’ve been confined to our 4 walls for more time than we could have ever imagined, and no matter how lovely they are, and how many times you could have changed the colour of them in the last 12 months, you’re probably sick of the sight of them!
So can we get rid of them? Hear me out, I don’t mean taking a sledge hammer to your walls, that would be crazy! But could adjusting your home allow for a more naturally lit space?
Is your new makeshift home office in a small cramped part of the house or have you set up shop on the dining table looking out at your garden? I know which I’d prefer!
Is there an argument that bringing more light into your home could have an upturn in your mood? In short, the answer is yes!
There are studies that show allowing natural light into your home has been linked with improving our wellbeing and mental health. Let alone that fact glass partitions and glass room dividers look stunning and are really hygienic and super easy to clean.
Have you ever tried going to sleep with the curtains open to wake naturally with sun rise and the birds? It feels 1000x better than, what should be an illegal, your mobile phone alarm!
Artificial light decreases levels of melatonin, a hormone that is created in the brain by the pineal gland. Melatonin is critical for our body’s health due to its control over our circadian rhythms.
So, how can you bring more natural light into your home?
