This reduces energy bills and lowers the business carbon footprint. Natural light can also help employees feel happier and more content. According to the US National Institutes of Health, some people experience serious mood changes during the winter months. Dubbed seasonal affective disorder, or SAD, this condition may be effectively treated with light therapy. Exposure to more light can alleviate fatigue, loss of interest and sad or anxious feelings - so increasing productivity. Business owners looking to increase the natural light in their offices, can do so in a variety of ways.
Opening blinds and curtains as far as they will go allows as much light to shine in without having to do major office renovations or spend any money at all. Business owners concerned about privacy can instal a window film that allows viewing from the inside only. Clean the windows. Dirty windows obstruct sunlight from entering the office. They also can make an office appear unkempt. Cleaning your office windows on a regular basis will let ample light in.
