Health benefits of natural daylight

Maximising daylight in home or office has many benefits, as EOS Rooflights explains

In association with

When the UK enjoys a spate of pleasant weather, it is clear to see the positive impact that the sunshine has on our moods.

Countless data supports the advantages of natural daylight over artificial lighting. These include increased efficiency – ensuring the right level and quality of light can have an impact on mood and performance.

There is a significant amount of evidence linking the levels of natural lighting to improved eye and brain function.

Exposure to sunlight has a proven ability to affect our well-being, making us feel a lot happier. This is due to the resulting release of the hormone serotonin. Known as the ‘happy hormone’, serotonin is regarded by many health professionals as something that helps maintain mood balance.

The sun is our main source of Vitamin D, which is crucial for good health and well-being. It is produced in the skin with the help of daylight and has many functions, including reducing the risk of disease by improving resistance to it and helping keep your immune system functioning properly.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a clinically diagnosed condition whereby a lack of natural daylight makes people feel unwell.

Flooding the environment with as much natural daylight as possible helps to reduce the likelihood of an onset of this condition.
