Over 50 percent of workforce agrees natural light and view of the outdoors is the most important office perk, ranking higher than fitness centers, child care, medical care, and on-site cafeterias. This was found in a survey of 1,614 employees, according to a  recent study by Future Workplace and View Dynamic Glass. In the world of architecture, daylighting means the use of natural light in a designed spaces. The benefits of daylighting include supporting occupants’ visual demands and increasing their health and wellbeing. Numerous researches have found access to natural elements can increase the well being, health, productivity, and happiness of occupants who spend over 90 percent of their days indoors. This include organizations such as World Green Building Council and International Well Building Institute This is why natural light is the number one desired office perk and more employers need to increase the use of natural light in their workspaces. Natural Light Boosts Employees Productivity Researchers at the Lighting Research Center (LRC) have revealed that daylit spaces enhance tenant productivity and comfort, and give the psychological and visual stimulation important to regulate human circadian rhythms. Higher tenant productivity and satisfaction result from the better visual quality that is given by great daylighting design. Among all available light sources, natural daylight provides the truest and most vivid color rendition. Evidence has demonstrated that the high concentrate of blue wavelengths in daylight allows the eye to see more detail with greater precision, particularly at lower light levels. Mental incitement is maybe the greatest advantage of natural daylight. Daylight reinforces natural circadian rhythms and the creation of neural transmitters, for example, serotonin. Higher light levels have been related with greater mental acuity and the simple variability of daylight might be vital to mental incitement. Natural Light Increases Employee Happiness Researchers trust that serotonin, the “happy” hormone, increases when individuals are exposed to natural daylight longer than living under artificial lighting and in darkness. Indeed, numerous psychiatrists recommend that individuals ought to get out in the natural daylight for a minimum of 30 minutes per day to help avert or treat depression. Employees also appreciate a lower feeling of anxiety when presented to natural daylight, and regular exposure to natural daylight can lessen anxiety and improve moods. Brief indoor exposure to natural bright daylight is found to minimize evening sleepiness, which daylighting could be utilized in work settings where napping isn’t allowed. More exposure to natural daylight will boost employee moods at offices – where the majority of people go through more than 2000 hours annually. Better moods will help increase employee morale, decrease office conflict, and increase overall happiness. Natural Light Enhances Employees Health It is evident that exposure to natural daylight has numerous mental health benefits for employees. Studies have also demonstrated that access to natural daylight has various physical health advantages for people. Vitamin D is fundamental to the immune system and the major source of vitamin D is natural daylight. Consequently, access to natural daylight can help support employees’ immune systems so they can fend off disease more effectively. As the Vitamin D delivered from sun is absorbed, it can help strengthen bones in their bodies. Studies have discovered that individuals with more exposure to natural daylight have less weak bones and better postures. Not all spaces of an office can be exposed to natural daylight because of the direction of the building and the types of window glass. Going on a short outdoor stroll around the block and enjoy a break from the screen under the natural daylight can improve employees’ wellbeing and health. Daylight also brings down cholesterol naturally and lower the resting heart rate to improve cardiovascular health. Sensible exposure to natural daylight can help boost digestion, increasing the rate at which individuals burn calories. Office in a loft style with bright natural daylight from large windows. Bring More Natural Light to Your Office Natural daylighting companies, such as lumenomics, specializes in lighting design that starts with maximizing the use of natural light in your office space. The best illumination system can be achieved through the collaboration of architects, contractors, facility managers, and occupants. An illumination system must include natural light through top lighting and side lighting, as well as smart tunable lighting fixtures when natural lighting is not available.
