Our natural circadian rhythm is vital in ensuring general wellbeing, affecting everything from our all-important sleep patterns to the molecular clocks that regulate the timing of our cellular activities. Keeping this rhythm in check, means we not only feel better but also perform better too, hence companies and organisations are keen to ensure they provide the right environment for their workers, with the correct lighting playing a big part in this. Having good lighting in stores too has been shown to create a better shopping experience for the customers, leading them to purchase more.

Modern day living can play havoc with this natural rhythm as we have learnt to rely on artificial stimulants such as caffeine and artificial lighting, hence it is important to make sure our lighting at least, works as best as possible for our natural well-being. Studies have shown that spending time in the great outdoors greatly helps our natural circadian rhythm, bringing huge health benefits, whilst helping to reduce stress and increase productivity. Unfortunately, it’s not always possible to be exposed to natural light, therefore, the perfect way to replicate this is by having sufficient lighting indoors.
Incorporating an elegant shade such as those from our glass range, helps to create a soft glow that replicates that of natural lighting. Pair with a dimmable lighting switch, which allows you to adjust the settings throughout the day.
