Bad lighting can cause fatigue, headaches, irritability and even depression. A study done by Northwestern University, reported that office workers who get more natural light slept better, exercised more and reported having a higher overall quality of life. source
If you work in a cubicle or a big office, chances are you don’t have control over the building’s natural lighting… but that doesn’t mean you can’t still take advantage of this office hack.
Here are a few strategies to get more natural light in your cubicle:
1. Use mirrors to redirect natural light. Just 1-2 mirrors intelligently placed in your cubicle can dramatically improve the amount of light you get.
2. Use natural light bulbs or a light therapy device. If you’re unable to get real natural light, both of these are great substitutes.
If you want to sleep better, be more motivated to exercise and have a higher overall quality of life… get more light.
