This explains a lot. Hey, boss can I get some new lights?

There was a study done where it was discovered that the lighting could be messing up how you're performing at work.

The study showed that poor lighting messes with your ability to learn and remember things. They learned this by running a test on rats.

After a month, the rats that were exposed to the same kind of lights we have in offices lost about 30% of their memory and learning. It changed the structure of their brain.

The good thing is, this can be reversed.

The researchers exposed the same rats to bright light for another month, and their brains fully recovered.

Most employers will not buy you all new bulbs. But whenever possible. Step outside, open up blinds or use a lamp with a brighter bulb. Your brain will thank you.
