Your Phoenix Electricians bring you tips on how to use lighting during the winter months. Here in the valley we have more sunshine than most so we may not often hear the term Seasonal affective disorder (SAD). During the winter months we have less hours of sunshine and this can lead to feeling gloomy or even more severe Seasonal affective disorder. There are many ways to combat this, one way is to open window blinds and let in as much natural light as possible during the day. Not only does natural light make your home look inviting, but it also boosts your sense of well-being by exposing you to light that emulates sunlight, this improves your mood and sleep cycle. Another is to use lighting in your home to create more light. Light bulbs can be purchased that copy the hues of the sun’s natural light and can create a sunshine in your home. Many new options are available these days to bring the sunshine to you.
