Stay on the bright side: the link between light and wellbeing
POSTED 18 Jan 2019 . BY Andrew Manns
New research suggests that both artificial and natural lighting directly affect wellbeing at home and in the workplace.

A recent study conducted by lighting supplier LED Hut, as part of its Brighter Britain report, found that one in three believe lighting is linked to their emotions.

The report – based on a survey of 1,000 UK adults aged 18 to 65 – also found that 77% feel lighting can impact their productivity. While 33% of those surveyed said access to natural light was important, another 32% claimed they would be happy to work in artificial lighting if it was designed to increase their productivity.

Counterintuitively, 31% of those questioned also said they believed lighting can "assist with sleeping problems" by creating a relaxed bedtime atmosphere.

Speaking on the results of the questionnaire, Paul Garner, e-commerce and marketing director at LED Hut commented: "Considering how important natural light is to generating vitamin D, and even assisting the circadian rhythms which govern our natural sleeping patterns, the potential lighting has to improve our wellbeing in a number of ways is clear.

"While it might be obvious that natural light helps to boost our mood, not everyone knows that artificial light also plays an important role when natural light isn’t an option."
