Welcome to the monthly Lighting for Health & Wellbeing newsletter for Sept. 26, 2022. Starting in the latter part of August, I’m always struck by the dynamic daylight changes both the intensity at different times of day and the shortening of those daylight hours. You would think I’d be used to it by now. But I typically take advantage of comfortable temperatures to get outdoors more in autumn than I actually do during the summer daytime hours. It just feels right. I heard a lot about daylight and views last week at our LightSPEC West conference. I plan to share some of those perspectives over the next week; we will certainly be seeking more contributions from the industry on merging daylighting, electric lighting, and design principles to maximize human wellbeing.
