As the population spends more and more of its time indoors, we get less and less natural light. In a way, people are much like plants, requiring some sunshine -- particularly morning light -- for their good health.
Natural light produces Vitamin D, which strengthens our immune system, and sunshine helps keep our body’s circadian rhythm in sync. As most of us spend so much time inside for work or school, we don’t get all of the natural sunlight we need.
Using Windows to Increase Light
One good way to brighten your life is by adding accent windows to your home. The more windows you have, the more light you receive. It’s quicker, simpler, and less expensive to add one of these windows, rather than larger double-hung or bay models.
An accent window is small enough to fit beneath a peaked roof over the front door or a staircase. Or, you could add a series of these windows, all in a row. This allows rays of bright sunshine to enter your house to lift your spirits and enhance your health.
