THE POWER OF CIRCADIAN WELLNESS AND LIGHTINGBy Christine Hunsaker | Posted April 4, 2023
The lighting in and around our homes can powerfully impact our daily lives. Tailored task lighting can improve our cooking experiences, reading lights help reduce eye strain, or illumination that lights nighttime pathways keeps us safer. Lighting affects the ease with which we interact with our spaces.
In addition to how our homes function, lighting also profoundly affects our body’s biological rhythms, otherwise known as circadian rhythms. Things like daily exposure to the blue light emitted from screens and mobile devices, daylight savings time, or jet lag can throw off our biological clocks. When our circadian rhythm is thrown out of balance, it can wreak havoc on sleep or wake functions.
Circadian lighting considers the physical and emotional effects of artificial lighting on our lives and well-being. Leveraging technology allows us to create lighting that feels restorative, natural, and comfortable, in addition to using it to make spaces more beautiful and functional.
