5 Ways Great Lighting Enhances Positivity and Good Health

1 comment

For ages, natural light has been given a lot of importance. Not only does good lighting help with improving and maintaining good health, but it can also have positive effects on your mood. Bright sunny days tend to make you feel creative and ready to face the world. On the contrary, a cloudy day might have you feeling low or unwilling to move. 

The latter would seem to have become normal, considering the city lifestyle; congested living spaces that lack opening for natural light.

Alternatively, the use of appropriate artificial lights in homes can bring about a series of positive changes in the mood and behavioral patterns of its occupants. 

There are 3 types of lighting options available; ambient lighting, task-oriented lighting, and accent lights.

If you wish for your house to be covered in a soft glow, then opt for ambient lights. These lights are considered to be the natural lights inside a home. They’re great for a day of relaxation.

Then, there are task-oriented lights, which are used in the kitchen or study, places where you want to get work done. They help you focus and concentrate on details. A fine table lamp, like the Artment’s Luxury Shelby Lamp, will prove to be an effective source of light, without the glare and shadow-effect.

Finally, there are accent lights, which are used to add an oomph factor to your home. Accent lights are used to highlight certain features on a wall or furniture, and elevate the style quotient of your decor.


Let’s take a look at the 5 ways in which great lighting can enhance positivity and good health. 


1. Blue Lights for Energy

    Recent studies have shown that blue light induces productivity in people. During the study, when a group of people were exposed to high energy, short-wavelength blue light, they completed various cognitive tasks assigned to them rather quickly. Blue light can make you more alert to your surroundings. Blue light is considered to be a great mood uplifter as well.

    2. Soft Lights for Appetite

      Ever observed the lighting in restaurants? It’s different from what we’d have at home, and each restaurant feels different. Right? There’s a simple reason behind this. 
      Lighting affects our decision-making process of what to eat, how much to eat, and how quickly we eat. Not just this, it also changes how we perceive flavors. Try to use soft lights in your dining room. They will provide a sense of relaxation, and help you enjoy your food in leisure. 

      The Artment’s Minimal Coral Floor Lamp might be the perfect ambient light piece to help you achieve a soft light in your dining room.

      3. Say No to SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)

        The changes in natural lighting can drastically affect our mood. During winters, when days become shorter and nights become longer, there is much less exposure to light; making people feel lazy or unmotivated. This is when we begin to realize the importance of a well-lit house. 
        Yellow lights work great for living areas as it is known to provide a sense of warmth and coziness. Additionally, yellow lights provide the perfect ambiance to unwind in. 

        4. Productivity Enhancing LEDs

          For people who work from home, or students spending several hours a day studying, LED lights are the best option. These lights are known to help people stay awake and brighten up the gloomiest of days. When you are able to stay at the top of your game, you will see an improvement in your mental health with great lights as well.

          5. Dim Lights to Improve Sleep Cycle

            Several studies and healthcare experts say that circadian rhythm (biological clock) is regulated by how our hormones react to different wavelengths. Along with this, our immune system, blood pressure, and cognition are also affected by the various lights that are available in the market. A good eight hours of sleep will have you carrying a positive attitude all day.

            Whether it is natural light or artificial lighting, today’s lifestyle requires everyone to take a look at the lighting situation in their homes. 

            An ideal home should make you feel happy and relaxed. This can be achieved with proper lighting installations. Whether they are floor lamps, table lamps, or wall sconce like The Artment’s Hexagon Touch Lights, you should ensure that they will bring positivity and health to you and your family.

              Actually, natural light is the best source of positive vibes. but artificial light works when there isn’t enough natural light.
