How to cope with being at home 24/7

It’s a little bit of a cliché to say that the world has changed irrevocably over the last few seasons, but thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic it has.

Even simple tasks like a trip to the shops or the school run have become more complicated, which means we’re spending more time than ever indoors. While there is hope that life will return to some semblance of normalcy in the next year or so, the truth is that being in the office or school is likely to reduce for the foreseeable future, meaning that home isn’t just where the heart is but also where you work, rest and play.

Have the right indoor environment

Spending the majority of your time at home means that the importance of having the right set up and environment is important for your health and mental well-being.

We’ve spent so much time at home (and will do so in the future) that investing in your property and its interior design is a good step to take. If done correctly, the interior design of your home can have a positive impact on not just your productivity but also your mood.

Our homes can have a massive impact on us and define how we live in them. Prioritising objects of particular importance, allowing natural light in or ensuring your home has clear and open space can help ensure your home environment is having a positive effect on you and your family’s mental and physical health.

The modern home during and post-COVID-19 needs to be able to accommodate more than it needed to before. Ensuring that you and your family can maintain a healthy lifestyle through what you eat, how you sleep, exercise, work and enjoy your spare time is critical.

Simple changes like shuffling the furniture around in your home to create change can have a short-term and significant impact. As we’re now spending so much more time indoors, it’s important to invest in that environment. Making proactive changes to your home that allow more natural light to seep through would be perfect, in particular, bespoke rooflights that can bring the outdoors inside, giving you the best of both worlds.

Bring the outdoors indoors

Being outdoors is important for our physical and mental health and when we’re spending a significant amount of time inside, we must alter our homes in a way that maximises our exposure to natural light.

It helps our bodies to produce vitamin D, which has an impact on our sleep patterns, focus and general happiness, so if you haven’t already looked at improving the daylight situation inside your home, then now is the time.

With Vario by VELUX, you can improve your home space with a rooflight that provides daylight, ventilation and improves your home environment. Our products can be tailor-made to operate in a way that benefits your home, from allowing the maximum possible amount of sunlight to openings that are placed precisely where you want them for ventilation purposes. It’s easy to add made-to-order bespoke rooflights to your home space.

Enjoy cool, clean air that brightens your home, stimulates your senses and contributes to the happiness, wellbeing and productivity of you and your family. It’s an investment in not just your property but also your wellbeing, one that is built to last and is supported by VELUX’s 10-year guarantee.
