Great lighting in your home is proven to transform your space, elevate your mood and significantly improve your day-to-day life. According to the Vision Council, 65% of adults experience digital eye strain along with 50% of children taking online classes.

Don’t let the sun set on your summer fun by easing your transition into your regular daily routine. We have a few simple tips to get back into the swing of things…
1. Plan Ahead
Start easing back into your regular routines a few days before back-to-school day. Using this method may help you adjust you sleep schedule more easily and get used to those early morning alarms. Set a routine that turns the lights to a low, warm glow two hours before bedtime so that your body knows it’s time to settle down.
2. Get your body ready
Starting the day into a darkened environment and struggling to get ready is a routine with which many of us are familiar. But it might not be the most efficient way to wake yourself up. The right light can bring a refreshing glow to your morning. With its brightness setting perfectly suited to a bedside table desk — this scene sets the stage for a productive day.
3. Create the bright environment
Creating a dedicated space solely for studying or working can help you focus and feel motivated. Make sure you have everything you need: have a supply station that contains pencils, pens, markers, and anything else you may need to complete your assignments.
4. Set time aside for you
There’s one other chore that should never be overlooked — taking care of yourself. Set aside the time you need to relax, recharge and unwind. Whether that’s curling up with a good book, watching your favourite show or simply enjoying your favourite hobby, you need to remember to put yourself first — at least for an hour each day.
Saying so long to summer is bittersweet but getting back to the daily routine doesn’t have wear you down.
