The benefits of good light and the importance of daylight alternatives indoors

Good light (daylight) is essential in our daily lives. It not only illuminates our environment but it also plays a crucial role in our overall health and well-being. Exposure to good light has a positive impact on various aspects of our physical and mental health. But in situations where direct daylight is limited, such as indoors, make sure you are within a meter of a window or use artificial light that mimics daylight as much as possible!



Increased productivity

Studies have shown that daylight can improves your productivity and performance. It improves your focus, productivity and leads to a better concentration. If daylight is limited in your workspace, using lights that mimic day light can help create a healthier environment to increase productivity.


Better mood

Exposure to good light has a direct impact on our mood and mental well-being. It Regulates our biological clock, an internal clock that drives processes in your body, such as when we need to sleep or be energetic. When this clock is regulated, it also has a positive effect on our mood.


Sleep regulation

Good light exposure also plays a vital role in regulating our circadian rhythm, the internal clock (i.e. our biological clock) that controls our sleep-wake cycle. Daylight exposure during the day helps to align your body's internal clock to real time, so that we are alert and focused during the day and sound asleep at night. Sitting within one meter of a window or using artificial light that mimics daylight can help regulate your sleep patterns, especially if you spend most of the day indoors.


Healthier eyes

Taking in sufficient good light helps maintain good eye health. Good light offers a more balanced spectrum, which is good for the eyes compared to regular artificial light. It also reduces the risk of myopia (nearsightedness).
