5 Easy Tips on Light that You Can Use to Improve Your Day
Light, Work, and You
Winter is here-and with it, short days, long nights, and Seasonal Affective Disorder. It is scientifically proven that the quantity and quality of light plays a significant role in mood and work performance.
Many people spend much more time in front of their computers and/or under indoor lighting conditions where the light is fluorescent (green) or incandescent (orange) which contributes to dry, burning eyestrain. Now we can take advantage of full spectrum lighting - either by using long lasting light bulbs or lamps of all kinds.
Full spectrum light will change the way you work and reduce visual fatigue as well as lifting your energy levels. Your eyes are designed to work with sunlight and won't tire as quickly because this energy-efficient light source:
* Replicates the true spectrum of sunlight
Seasonal Affective Disorder is a condition wherein people who are not getting enough sunlight exposure become depressed physically, mentally and emotionally. Most people experience this condition in winter and often part of the treatment is the use of full spectrum light-goggles which patients wear each day for a healthy dose of sunlight.
You can buy a full spectrum lightbulb and put it in your desktop task light, whether you are in a corporation or in a home office. I recommend full spectrum light for everywhere you read, write, do computer key entry or close work of any kind.
Although full spectrum bulbs cost more for each bulb, they use less energy and last five to seven times longer than regular lightbulbs. Youc an put o ne everywhere you do close work of any kind at work and at home. I guarantee you'll notice the improvement right away.
