Five Health Benefits of LED Lighting

Happy Office People

Human beings need light.  On a basic level, natural light tells us when it’s time to wake up and go to sleep.  On the other hand, manmade light sources are responsible for enabling a variety of different activities when natural light is simply not available.  As a result, we are exposed to light (of all different kinds) every day and that light has an effect on our overall wellbeing and health.  Research indicates that LED lighting can provide a variety of health benefits.  Here are five reasons why LEDs are good for your health.

  1. Balances Circadian Rhythm

Recent developments in LED lighting technology has allowed the LEDs to mimic natural light.  Research indicates that proper exposure to natural light promotes a healthy and regular circadian rhythm and LEDs seem to do the trick.  So swap those fluorescents in your office for LEDs and enjoy the sleep benefits!

  1. Decrease Occurrence of Headaches

We are all familiar with the notorious flickering fluorescent bulbs.  For those who suffer from headaches and migraines, fluorescents can have devastating side effects.  The good news is that there is now an alternative!  LED bulbs do not flicker, and in turn can help ease headaches.

  1. Increased Learning Performance

When LEDs are applied in a learning environment, research suggests that learning performance is increased.  This makes LEDs an optimal investment for schools.  Let’s help students succeed.

  1. Increased Productivity

Organizations that implement LED lighting in office spaces and work areas have recognized an increase in productivity.  Implementing LED technology can help your employees to find success in their careers.

  1. Decrease Stress and Anxiety

We all know how spending  a day outdoors can help reduce stress.  Though we may not be able to consistently get outdoors in busy day to day life, LED lighting can offer help.  LED lighting has been associated with decreased levels of stress and anxiety in indoor environments.

So, there you have it.  We all know that LED lighting is good for the environment, but, we are now finding that LED lighting is good for people too!  Making a switch to LED is one simple way to have a positive impact on people.
