How Lighting Shutters Help Regulate Sleeping Cycles
The human body has an internal biological clock that regulates many physiological and behavioral processes, including sleep. This internal clock, known as the circadian rhythm, is influenced by various factors, including exposure to light. Lumina lighting window shutters can help regulate the circadian rhythm by mimicking the natural light-dark cycle of the day, including the rising and setting of the sun.
Properly timed exposure to light can help regulate the body’s production of melatonin, a hormone that promotes sleep. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals who may not have access to natural light or who work in environments with inconsistent lighting.
One of the key benefits of Lumina Shutters is their ability to provide consistent lighting throughout the day, from any window, regardless of the window view or exposure to the sun. This helps regulate the circadian rhythm, which in turn can lead to improved sleep quality.
A study conducted by the Lighting Research Center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute found that individuals who were exposed to consistent levels of light throughout the day had better sleep quality and were more alert during the day than those who were not exposed to consistent levels of light.
By functioning to control both incoming transient light, and adjustable brightness coming from the illuminating slats, Lumina Shutters provide complete privacy and perfect control of lighting in any environment. This can be particularly useful for individuals who are sensitive to light and may need to regulate their exposure to improve sleep quality. For example, a study conducted by the University of Pennsylvania found that individuals who were exposed to bright light in the morning and dim light in the evening had improved sleep quality compared to those who were exposed to dim light in the morning and bright light in the evening.
Individuals who work night shifts or travel frequently may have disrupted circadian rhythms that can lead to poor sleep quality. Lumina Shutters can be useful in helping to regulate the circadian rhythm for individuals like these, which in turn improves sleep quality and overall health.
Consistent exposure to window lighting throughout the day goes a long way in helping to regulate the body’s production of melatonin, while controlled exposure can be beneficial for individuals who are sensitive to light. Lighting shutters help regulate the type and intensity of the light you experience in your favorite spaces for a better night’s rest.
