How Home Lighting Shapes Your Circadian Harmony

How Home Lighting Shapes Your Circadian Harmony

Lighting is more significant than we often realize in our daily life. Beyond mere illumination, the lights in your home have a profound impact on your body's internal clock, known as the circadian rhythm. 

Your circadian rhythm is the natural, internal process that regulates your sleep-wake cycle and repeats roughly every 24 hours. It's guided by external cues, primarily light, that signal to your body when it's time to be awake and alert, and when it's time to wind down and sleep. Studies have shoed that this complex relationship between light exposure and your biological clock is key to maintaining a balanced sleep schedule, hormonal regulation, and overall health.

Impact of Home Lighting

The lighting choices you make in your home can significantly influence your circadian rhythm. Exposure to bright, cool-toned light during the day helps signal to your body that it's time to be awake and active. Conversely, warm and dim lighting in the evening can encourage relaxation and prepare your body for sleep. Artificial lighting that disrupts this natural rhythm, such as blue light emitted by electronic devices before bedtime, can interfere with your sleep quality and disrupt your circadian harmony.

Dimmable and Color-Temperature Changing Lights: A Harmonious Solution

Enter the realm of smart lighting solutions that adapt to your body's natural rhythm. Dimmable and color-temperature changing lights offer a customizable experience that mimics the natural progression of daylight. During the morning and afternoon, brighter and cooler-toned lights can help boost your alertness and productivity. As the day turns to evening, transitioning to warmer and dimmer lights helps signal to your body that it's time to wind down.

Jubilee Lighting the Way

At Jubilee, we care about your well-being and we've considered the profound impact that lighting holds on your daily rhythm. That's why every home in Jubilee comes standard with a minimum of 3 living spaces where all light switches and light bulbs/fixtures in that space are circadian rhythm lighting by Jasco. This allows residents to align their lighting choices with their circadian needs and orchestrate the perfect atmosphere for every moment. 

“Circadian lighting has been prominent in tech, such as night shift in smartphones, as well as commercial buildings and airplanes for several years, but is often overlooked in residential settings,” said Joshua Roberson, National Director of Sales for Jasco. “JascoPro Series SmartCycle lighting in Jubilee homes makes supporting a proper circadian rhythm effortless. Whether it’s an improved sleep environment or high-quality task lighting, the health and wellness benefits are immediately recognizable.”
