While the work-from-home lifestyle allows us to enjoy more quality time in the comfort of our houses, maintaining work-life balance can be tricky. Home is simultaneously our sanctuary and retreat as well as where we spend hours working and virtually meeting with clients and colleagues.
Technology has created new pathways facilitating WFH and, thankfully, has also created methods to preserve our personal lives within the same space—uninterrupted and fully present in the moment. Take a look at how a Coral Gables-based interior designer made the switch and uses her smart home lighting system to maintain a balanced, fulfilled life.
I know a lot of people love working from home. When I made the leap, I was surprised at how challenging I found it to be. An extrovert by nature, I thrive off the energy of those I interact with each day. That being said, I also very much enjoy coming home to my “me time” spent in solitude, surrounded by my daily comforts. Suddenly, I had no distinct separation from one mode to the other.
I even noticed my work and creativity started to suffer–the complete opposite intention of this change. Little did I know my smart home’s lighting system would become my saving grace. With Savant Daylight Mode, the rhythm of my day-to-day life has taken on a different beat. Its natural lighting settings allow me to align the inside of my home with the outside, based on my home’s actual geo-coordinates.
As a result, I feel more connected with nature even while inside. The one-minute quick preview feature on the Savant Pro App allows me to try different settings to find my perfect, personalized fit. By creating Savant Scenes in my rooms of choice, I can set my lights to reflect the color temperature and intensity that matches the circadian curve at any time of the day.
The advanced logic of Savant Daylight Mode helps me naturally differentiate the times of day to reclaim my routine. Feeling more in tune with the outside world is an absolute game changer. I’ve also adopted a healthier sleep schedule. My internal biorhythm is regulated in ways that feed my energy and focus. Brain fog is a thing of the past. I’m working better, smarter, and more efficiently, all while in the comfort of my home.
Now my life has balance. No more extra late work hours at the office but also no more struggling to make work-from-home work for me. My home’s lighting controls are tailored to how I need them in order to thrive. More importantly, my personalized lighting system allows me to fully rest and recharge so I’m healthier and happier.
