Our busy schedules often prevent us from experiencing the things in life that are good for us, like spending time outside and soaking up the sunshine. But did you know that getting more sun could actually change your life for the better?
The benefits of daylight are indisputable: Studies have shown that it can make you more productive by boosting your energy level; it can strengthen your mental abilities by improving your concentration and it can enhance your well-being by lifting your mood. In your home, the positive effects of daylight offer additional benefits. Interior spaces seem larger. Colours appear truer and brighter. Your environment feels more inviting.
By utilising daylight to brighten your interior spaces, you’ll also reduce your need for electricity, minimise the impact on the environment and lower your power bills. With a Solatube Daylighting System in your home, you’ll receive all the benefits daylight has to offer even if you don’t have time to go outside and enjoy the sunshine.
Daylight entering through the eye triggers hormone production that promotes healthy sleep/wake cycles, so we wake feeling well rested.
Sunlight causes our brains to produce serotonin, a hormone that can improve mood by alleviating pain, providing energy and making us feel happy.
People who get regular exposure to sunlight tend to be more optimistic, sleep better at night and have a better sense of well-being.
