How does lighting affect wellbeing?

Lighting affects wellbeing in various ways. Sufficient light exposure during the day, especially natural light, can enhance mood and energy levels. In contrast, continual exposure to harsh or poorly designed artificial lighting can lead to discomfort, eye strain, headaches, fatigue, stress, and even depression. The right lighting can also create a calming, comfortable environment that can help reduce stress and enhance overall satisfaction with one’s living environment.
