The impact of light quality on mental well-being is a well-researched topic, with various studies highlighting the significant influence light has on mood, happiness, and overall mental health.

One of the key findings in this area is the positive effect of natural light on mentalWork Space with Natural Light well-being. Decades of research have shown that natural light can have a powerful impact on both mental and physical health. A study published in the Journal of Affective Disorders analyzed data from over 500,000 individuals and found a correlation between time spent outdoors in natural light and a decrease in the risk of developing long-term depression. The study also observed reduced usage of antidepressants and self-reported improvements in mood and general happiness. This aligns with a survey of office workers in North America, which revealed a strong preference for workplaces with access to natural light and views of the outdoors. The study found that limited access to natural light in the workplace adversely affected workers' mood, productivity, and sleep​.

In healthcare settings, the quality of light has been found to be crucial for both staff and patients. For instance, one study observed that higher illumination levels reduced prescription-dispensing error rates among pharmacists. This aligns with findings from other settings that show improved task performance with increased light levels. Furthermore, light plays a critical role in controlling the body's circadian rhythm. Inadequate light during the day can lead to feelings of depression and sleepiness due to a failure in the natural suppression of melatonin production. On the other hand, exposure to bright light, both natural and artificial, has been effective in reducing depression, improving sleep, and influencing the length of hospital stays for patients. Specifically, exposure to bright light in the morning has been more effective than evening exposure in reducing depression.

These studies underscore the importance of light quality in influencing mental and physical well-being. The use of fluorescent light insert covers, especially those that mimic natural light or have uplifting designs, can be a valuable addition to spaces where natural light is limited, potentially contributing to improved mood and productivity.
