Lighting boosts office workers’ sleep by 26 minutes

We came across a great article on LUX about a study conducted by Eindhoven University of Technology. The study showed improved sleep duration for office workers who had control over their personal lighting at work. The ability to adjust intensity and colour temperature over their work stations was extremely beneficial and early findings reported that subjects slept 26 minutes longer on average during the night.
