Natural light can benefit your home in many ways. But apart from that, it can also create a positive impact on your own well-being.
What Are the Benefits of Natural Light?
Sunlight is a great source of vitamin D, which helps prevent bone loss and reduce the risk of heart disease. It can also be quite helpful for people to manage seasonal depression. Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD for short, is caused by the changes of season. It typically starts around the beginning of fall and lasts throughout the cold months. By getting your daily dose of natural light (whether directly or indirectly), you can manage your mood or disposition better.
