Bad lighting does not always mean lack of light; it also means that the lighting is too bright or it has the wrong spectrum. And any bad lighting can affect your mood, health, eyes and sleep. And it can cause a severe disruption in your daily routine and often impairs your productivity and performance at work. And make you prone to making many errors.
What Kind of Lighting Should We Use?
Incandescent lights are almost gone, but people are still using fluorescent light in their offices. However, there is a new system of lights called LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes).
People are now preferring LEDs (light emitting diodes) because they are available in different colors and spectrum appearances. You can put different LEDs together to get well-balanced light. However, some lights come out with a proper system and mobile or desktop operating the application. These systems allow you to change the color of your light only using a mobile or desktop application. With the help of smartphone apps, you can tune these lights to the needs of the work. Moreover, the light color can also be changed according to day time and night time.
You cannot do that with florescent lights. Moreover, LEDs has longer life span than regular florescent.
So, paying for a good lighting does help you improve your productivity, after all, no one wants to have a bad day at work.
Making sure that your office has the best ergonomics not only boost your productivity but affect your employees or team members work efficiency as well. Bad lighting can ruin one valuable work day as well as your eye health too.
