A conservatory is a room for all seasons and can accommodate many activities. Our customers often tell us about the imaginative ways they use their conservatories – from setting up a mini-gym, adding a children’s playroom or as an additional space to entertain friends through to using it as a special quiet space, close to nature for relaxing and escaping on a comfy settee to read a book, view the garden and watch the changing seasons.
At this time of year, when the days are shorter and it is too cold to be outside, what can be a better way to enjoy extra daylight than by sitting in a conservatory? And for those of us who suffer from the ‘winter blues’, this room could help improve our mood and help lift our spirits.
In a recent survey by Anglian Home Improvements, 74% of people polled reported that the reduction in daylight hours over the winter months has a negative effect on their sense of wellbeing.
Sitting near a window or in a conservatory with lots of natural daylight can help to lift your spirits and improve your sense of well-being.
Suggestions to help battle this gloomy time of year include, making the most of the available natural daylight by going for a daily walk and take some exercise. Other ways to help you feel brighter during winter include making sure you eat a well balanced and healthy diet, get enough sleep, plan events to look forward to and take a holiday in the sun.
An Anglian Conservatory
A few of us from the Anglian office often go for a walk at lunch time. Just getting some fresh air and feeling the warmth of the sun on your face when it is shining, makes me feel brighter and happier.
