Tips for Working with Light
Adjust your desk so that you can catch as many outdoor light as possible (so you can look outside). If we have to work with artificial lighting, fluorescent is not that ideal. Fluorescent tubes have a concentration within the orange-red-violet portion of the spectrum, while the blue-green region is the most important. A lack of the blue-green spectrum part can lead to fatigue and eyestrain.
The variation in intensity of the (sun) light keeps us alert and stimulates us. Especially when the outside light or light from the ceiling is not enough, make sure u have a desk lamp.
Light has a significant impact on our mood. Many people have seasonal depression during long dark periods.
The sun provides natural melatonin, a neuro-transmitter which activates sleep.
The sun plays a major role in our day and night rhythm and our mood (when we feel depressed, it is wise to look at the sun).
