The Types of Lighting and Their Effect on Mood
Have you ever been reading a book or perusing your tablet and realized that it is getting hard to see? Do you recall that feeling of relief when you finally turned on the light? Low lighting may be seen as “mood” lighting but when it comes to doing everyday activities, low lighting places strain on our eyes and causes headaches. It can also lead to feelings of depression.
There is a time for dim lighting and it is in your bedroom when you are trying to relax.

Essentially any activity where you are not using your eyes to complete a task.
Bright lighting has the opposite effect. It stimulates the mind which is wonderful for focusing on the task at hand.
