Sunshine is the original full-spectrum lighting. Have you ever noticed how much better you feel after spending time outdoors on a sunny day? That feeling of refreshment and rejuvenation is, at least in part, thanks to the natural sunlight that you’re exposed to outdoors. People living in Seattle don’t get quite as much sunshine as they would like during the winter months, but that doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy the benefits of full-spectrum lighting indoors. Let’s take a look at some of the ways full-spectrum lighting can improve your home or workplace environment.
The Benefits of Full-Spectrum Lighting
While the science has been debated, full-spectrum lighting has been reported to have numerous positive effects on mood and health. Studies have shown that people exposed to full-spectrum lighting experience improved alertness, focus, and productivity.
The light also helps reduce eye strain and headaches caused by fluorescent lights. In addition, many people report that full-spectrum lighting helps them reduce seasonal affective disorder (SAD) symptoms such as depression, fatigue, and low moods commonly experienced by Seattleites during the winter months.
Finally, it can help create an overall pleasant atmosphere in your home or office by providing a more natural-feeling light source than traditional artificial bulbs.
Where To Use Full Spectrum Lighting
Now that we know the benefits of full spectrum lighting, let’s look at some places where it could be used around the home or office.
In the Kitchen or Dining Room
One great place for ful-spectrum lighting is in your kitchen or dining room where food prep and meals are enjoyed; its bright white light will make colors appear vibrant and true-to-life while providing a comfortable atmosphere for conversation with family or friends.
In the Office
Another great spot for full-spectrum lighting is in your office; it can help improve focus so you can stay productive throughout the day.
