Balance Your Circadian Rhythm

The body’s internal clock is designed to follow the patterns of natural sunlight. Unfortunately, our circadian rhythms become out of balance when we spend too much time under harsh, artificial lighting indoors. Excessive exposure to artificial lighting can lead to mood swings, headaches, eye strain, burnout, stress, and low energy levels. Research shows that exposure to natural light can boost energy levels, improve productivity, and increase the brain’s release of feel-good hormones.

With automated blinds, you can create the perfect lighting environment at home that utilizes natural sunlight. You can raise the shades to the perfect level that lets in sunlight while reducing glare. Some motorized shades can even be automated to raise and lower in tune with the sun’s shifting patterns. You can also schedule your bedroom shades to rise slowly as the sun does in the morning, letting you wake up naturally with the light infusing your room.

Protect Your Skin

Did you know that ultraviolet radiation can penetrate glass? While windows block UVA rays from entering your home, they don’t block skin-harming UVB rays. Exposure to the sun’s harmful radiation can lead to a number of unpleasant health effects, including skin cancer (the most common type of cancer in the U.S.) and premature signs of aging (like wrinkles and age spots).

But smart shades shield your skin from the damaging effects of UV radiation. And there are several options for sheer or translucent shades that filter in soft natural light while filtering out harsh UV rays — you can have the best of both worlds!

Sleep Soundly

We’ve talked a lot about how important light is — but there’s a time for darkness as well. Darkness is one of the most important elements of good sleep; the absence of light sends a message to the body that it’s time to slow down and rest. Exposure to light, while you’re trying to unwind at night, can confuse your body and make it more difficult for you to fall asleep.

But motorized blackout shades create a perfectly dark bedroom environment to promote easy, restful sleep. You can schedule your shades to lower at the same time every night as a signal that it’s time to start preparing for sleep.
