Let in the light and be happier working from home
During this unprecedented year many people have found themselves working from home for the first time, often working from the dining or kitchen table. No doubt there have been many challenges to overcome but it’s also given everyone a chance to spend more time in the comfort of their home.
For some working from home has been a good experience, but for many it has made them more stressed. The BBC has put together an article of ideas on how we can all be happier at home, one of which is letting in more natural light: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-54886125
According to experts, sunlight, fresh air and access to nature are fundamentally good for your mental health. If you’re working from home you may consider repositioning your desk near a window to benefit from the natural light during the day. Ensuring your windows are clear and clean will help to increase the amount of natural light into your home. You may consider increasing the size of your windows, perhaps changing your windows for sliding doors for larger glazing areas and easy access to your outside space during the summer.
Noise pollution can also cause stress and distraction if you’re working from home, particularly if you live on a busy road – double or triple glazing can help to reduce this.
