The right light
As winter arrives, Neuroscientist Dr Karen Dawe shares her advice for lighting your work or study-from-home space.
With winter drawing in and the clocks having gone back, the change in daylight hours can affect our sleep patterns. It is not often understood how this shift in our social clock, but not the sun clock, affects the way we feel and how our body functions.
Neuroscientist Dr Karen Dawe explains; “Our body clocks have evolved under the daily pattern of daylight. In fact almost all physiological functions from protein production and our metabolism to sleep patterns are under the control of the body clock.”
As the daylight hours get shorter and nights grow longer and more of us than ever work from home, Dr Karen Dawe reveals her tips on how to use light to create a productive working environment.
