You should always feel comfortable in your office - regardless of whether you are employed or work independently from home. Boring setup, poor lighting and poor ventilation make it harder for you to concentrate and ultimately your work suffers. To prevent this, you need to know how light in the office affects our work - we take a closer look at this in this blog article. Would you like to learn more about the effects of different things on our work? Then take a look at the desqup website under the blog item. Here you will find numerous articles, for example why plants should not be missing in any office. Importance of light in the office and at the workplace Light is a factor that many people still underestimate . The human rhythm is based entirely on daylight: when it gets darker in the evening, the body releases melatonin, which makes you tired - so you can fall asleep comparatively well and your body shuts down automatically. Incidentally, this is also the reason why many people find it difficult to get out of bed in winter – or why they cannot be productive in the half-dark office in the morning. In addition to these effects, which are similar for everyone, bad light in the office has other effects on the body. Low levels of illumination put more strain on the eyes during everyday tasks, causing irritation and pain. In addition, the bright computer monitor shines directly into your eyes, causing glare. All of this makes it harder for you to concentrate. In addition, the darkness affects your mood, in autumn and winter many people unfortunately suffer more often from anxiety and depression - it is important to counteract this with light in the office. Light plays a major role in the human body, especially real, natural daylight. A study by the University of Oxford has shown impressively how important it is for people to be out in the fresh air and in daylight. Workers who worked outdoors got an average of 46 minutes more sleep per night. It is therefore crucial to ensure that there is enough light in the office if you work mostly in an enclosed space. Are you an employer and are you considering modernizing your office in terms of the right light? Then you should, because an internal survey by a large company revealed that over 90 percent of employees find that light in the office is a decisive factor in their choice of workplace - because your employees want to feel comfortable. If you are thinking about modernizing your office , then the right furniture is also important. These should be robust, durable and also visually appealing.

Tips \u0026amp;amp; tricks for better light in the office In this paragraph we look at how to ensure the right brightness in your office. First and foremost, you should try to get as much daylight into the office as possible - only then would we recommend using artificial light , but not every one. Lamps that are too bright also have a negative impact on your work, such as a fluorescent tube that is too bright. In the best case, your desk should be parallel to the window in your office to guarantee the best lighting conditions. This prevents glare or annoying reflections that interrupt your work. You should also make sure that the sunlight does not shine directly in your face. Blinds or partial curtains are therefore important for particularly sunny days so that the light in the office does not become too much of a good thing. Also, remove anything in your office that blocks daylight. There should be no shelves, large plants or other disturbing things in front of the windows, because then you are missing important rays of light. If your office isn\u0026#39;t blessed with the best windows or good orientation, you can help with artificial alternatives. However, the artificial light must not be too bright either. Experts recommend a brightness of around 500 lux in order not to strain the eyes too much but also to ensure good brightness. You can find the brightness information on the vast majority of lamps. It is best to equip your office with daylight lamps, which are installed as panels on the ceiling - it almost looks like pure sunlight. These daylight lamps are no longer expensive and can also be installed by laypeople - if you are employed, you can also ask your employer whether they will finance them. You have no windows in your office and it is dark almost all day? Then you should think about artificial windows that contain daylight lamps - from a distance they are almost indistinguishable from a real window, and the light distribution is also very similar. They are a good solution to improve your work performance even in a normally dark room.
