What do you use your conservatory for?
Conservatories are notoriously associated with the warmer seasons. It’s a great place to unwind and admire the view of the garden as it blooms into life whilst enjoying the warmth from the high sun. A recent trend in conservatory use has seen a bigger impact on people’s lives all year round even to the extent of altering people’s moods and health.
A recent survey has found that 83 percent of women and 74 percent of men state the lack of natural light during the winter months has a negative impact on their mood and makes them less likely to leave the house. Lack of daylight is associated with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) which can influence people’s moods making them feel lethargic, bored, hungry and even depressed. (see previous blog)
