Daylight serves as an external indicator for the circadian rhythm, so its absence imbalances the bodily functions and triggers stress. 

In addition, Individuals are frequently exposed to lighting which is either too harsh or too dim, causing headaches and eye stains and this negatively impacts their focus.

Research shows a variety of benefits from exposure to daylight, such as an improvement to an individuals general health and circadian rhythm along with the psychological and physiological benefits mentioned above.

Understanding the effect natural light has on the way we feel, how productive we are, and the effect it has on how we view the space we inhabit is vital to improving our advancing modern existence. The true value of light lies in the combination of excellent physiological and phycological benefits it is proving to have on the human body.

Human-centric lighting puts people first. Developing appropriate human-centric lighting — or lighting for health and wellbeing — is more than just delivering lumens in large quantities. Brightness alone isn’t an indicator of quality lighting .The timing, pattern and amount of light matters to the human biological system.
