Our bodies are designed to follow a circadian rhythm -- that is, waking and sleeping with the rising and setting of the sun. But harsh indoor lights and bright technological screens can mess with that. Did you know that artificial lighting can mess with your energy and moods? Too much artificial light exposure can also lead to headaches, stress, and eye strain. Natural light, on the other hand, has the exact opposite effect: increased energy, improved mood, and increased productivity.
You may think that being indoors protects you from harmful UV light from the sun. This is technically true, but if your home has large windows, radiation can still penetrate through glass. Most people prefer natural light to artificial light, but there are certain times in the afternoon where it can get a little too intense.
That makes smart automated shades the ideal solution. Unlike regular shades, you can choose from several different shading options that include sheer or translucent materials. Set shades to close automatically when a window is hit by direct sunlight. This allows you to enjoy all the natural light with none of the potential sun damage.
You know how important natural light is, but darkness has a place too. It’s one of the most basic elements of a good night’s sleep, because it tells your body that it’s time to rest. If you live in a city that never sleeps, or completely turns out the lights, blackout curtains are your new best friend. Darken your bedroom easily, and even schedule them to slowly rise with the anticipation of the morning sun. Your body will thank you for making this switch!
