With so much of our time spent indoors on a daily basis, it’s important that we make our home a sanctuary so that we can live brighter. When you have the right lighting installed in your home you can ensure that you are using lighting effectively throughout the day to keep you motivated when you need to be and to help you fall asleep at night.
The Impact of Lighting on Your Health
Over the past few years, we have been increasingly exposed to LED lighting – on our smartphones, our television screens, and on our computers. These screens produce a high amount of blue light, which is very disruptive for our internal clocks. Our natural circadian rhythms are based on the 24-hour cycle around the sun, determining when we go to sleep and when we wake up. By exposing ourselves to blue light we make it harder for our bodies to determine when day and night are, disrupting our sleep-wake cycles and making us more prone to tiredness.
Boost Your Mood and Live Brighter with Smart Lighting
With smart lighting you can set up schedules to make the task of managing your lighting even easier. Schedule lights to turn on and off as required before bed and when you wake up in the morning, as well as ensuring they are scheduled to start with the appropriate colour temperature. If you have Google Home or Amazon Alexa devices you can also easily use voice commands to dim the lights as required.
Breathe Easier with Air Purifiers
Every day we are breathing in pollutants in the air, both inside and outside the home. While this is difficult to control outdoors, in our own homes there are plenty of ways to create a cleaner, fresher environment to live in. Air purifiers are a great option if you want to filter out the harmful pollutants and bacteria that are floating around throughout your home. The filters on our air purifiers capture 99.95% of dust, bacteria, viruses, pollen, pet hair, and smoke and release clean air back into your home.
