It’s sad that we depend so much on artificial lighting when we have an inexhaustible (at least in the next few billion years) source of natural light, our very own sun.
The natural light the sun provides comes with a host of health benefits, and it’s regrettable that we aren’t getting much of it into our homes.
Sunlight’s capability to trigger Vitamins B and D production in our bodies should be one primary reason to let in more natural light. Both vitamins are instrumental in keeping our teeth and bones strong and healthy, which is why it’s puzzling why we aren’t trying that hard to get more sun.
The rays of the sun are also a natural antiseptic. Instead of soaking our entire home in synthetic antibacterial products, why don’t we just fight them off with UV rays, which also happen to help boost red and white cell production, our circulation, and our immune system?
We all should let more natural light into our homes not only for the health benefits but also to complement our interior design. Check out the infographic below for tips on how to do just that.
