It’s a well-known fact that exposure to sunlight in moderation brings about a lot of benefits for an individual’s wellbeing, especially for those who spend a lot of time indoors. In today’s post, your bow and bay window specialist, Renewal by Andseren® of New Jersey, shares how natural light benefits your wellbeing.
A Great Source of Vitamin D
Natural light is one of the primary sources of Vitamin D. This Vitamin supplements your bone strength and density while it reduces your risk of suffering heart attacks and prevents weight gain as well. You can enjoy a healthy dose of Vitamin D by enjoying a few minutes outside under the warm sun. If you can’t go outside, you can position yourself or work near a well-lit window or door that lets the beautiful sunlight in.
Natural Light Prevents Some Serious Health Risks
Having a few lamps or light bulbs as your only source of “light” isn’t ideal as they don’t provide any health benefits at all, not to mention that they consume energy if they’re used regularly. When you’re planning a window replacement project, consider having enough space to let natural light into your home. A healthy amount of exposure to natural light helps you avoid eye strain, migraine, stress, irritability and keeps your melatonin levels at a healthy level.
Natural Light Helps Your Sleep Patterns
Your exposure to natural light directly affects how your sleep patterns work. According to the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine, office workers that have regular exposure to sunlight sleeps more soundly than those who don’t. Sunlight acts as a way to reset your internal body clock as well and helps you wake up much more naturally than a cell phone alarm, for example.
