Integrate Wellness Design in the Home: Part One - Crestron and Delos
Tunable Lighting Benefits Your Body & Mind
Improving your home’s wellness has become an even higher priority this year. From your air purification and drinking water to the home environment you create for yourself – it all contributes to your physical and mental health.
One of these home wellness solutions you can bring into your Naples, FL living space is tunable lighting. This lighting setup from Crestron and Delos has endless benefits, and we’ll dive into those and more in this blog. Read on below!
Tunable Lighting: Why It’s Important
When we spend the majority of our day inside, we miss out on soaking up crucial sunlight that our body and mind crave. Staying indoors all day can happen quite easily, especially this year. However, lack of natural lighting will eventually lead to your circadian rhythm becoming unbalanced and irregular. When this happens, you’ll notice. You’ll feel yourself growing sluggish and lethargic, even in the middle of the day.
Staying indoors shouldn’t mean your mental and physical health should suffer as a consequence. With a tunable lighting installation, you can bring the “sunlight” into your own home.
Benefits of Tunable Lighting
So how does tunable lighting work? Your system continually aims to mimic the sun’s patterns in the sky, so even when you haven’t left your home’s walls, your body and mind will respond as if they’re experiencing natural lighting all day long. This means that when you wake up in the morning, you’re met with dimmed warm lighting to help you adjust to the day, as though the sunrise was right in your bedroom.
Your lighting will adjust throughout the day, shifting to a bluer white lighting hue that promotes productivity and motivates you to keep working during those mid-day hours when you might normally dip in energy. Then, as the evening comes around, your lighting will then transition to a warmer glow once again, mimicking candlelight or the sunset. This gets you ready for bed and tells your body and mind that it’s time for sleep.
Once you go to bed and then wake up the next morning, the cycle starts anew! Your circadian rhythm stays in balance, and you’ll feel revitalized and ready to face each day with a renewed energy, both physically and mentally. This is the wellness that tunable lighting brings to your whole home.
