4 Different Ways Natural Light Affects Your Well-Being

Natural light is something that we see and experience on a daily basis. In fact, according to real estate agents, natural light is a selling point for many homes on the market. Apart from that, a survey handed out to office workers also showed that natural light is a major perk for office employees. This is because natural light can actually affect your entire well-being. But how?


4 Different Ways Natural Light Affects Your Well-Being


House window replacement expert Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis lists below the different ways natural light can affect your well-being as well as how you can increase natural light in your home:


  1. Helps Ward Off Seasonal Depression – According to studies, about 6% of the population experiences seasonal depression during the autumn season and around 14% experience something known as the winter blues. However, while fighting off such mood changes can be difficult, this doesn’t always have to be the case as exposing oneself to as much natural light as possible can help ward off seasonal depression.


  1. Reduces Health Risks of Fluorescent Lighting – Believe it or not, fluorescent lighting has some health risks associated with them. In fact, overexposure to artificial lighting can actually increase the risk of stress, migraine and eye strain. By exposing yourself to natural light, you can reduce these health risks and have a healthier lifestyle overall.


  1. Improves Sleep – On the other hand, if you have your window replacement service install your windows to improve your exposure to natural light, you can easily improve how you sleep everyday. This helps you boost your mental health as well as your productivity when you work.


  1. Boosts Vitamin D – Whenever you’re exposed to sunlight, your body absorbs Vitamin D, an important nutrient that helps prevent bone loss, heart disease, weight gain and even cancer. This means that by exposing yourself to as much natural light as possible, you can live a healthier lifestyle than ever before.


How to Improve the Natural Light in Your Home


There are a few ways you can improve the amount of natural light that enters your home. For starters, you can get rid of the drapes that you use to cover your windows. That way, you can use the sun as your alarm clock and get your circadian rhythm back on track, rebooting your sleep-wake cycle in the process. Alternatively, you can also install mirrors on the opposite side of your windows to help natural light bounce around your room.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
