This effect was found in both adults and children. This relates to the findings of a 1992 study, which suggested that lack of window access can alter a child's cortisol level. awthasociel vtres Awrtel 1ST.perent Kler and Lindsten (19, citedin hetpprtrustangkcontertapkaduonga erhsarvey1 pd Studies suggest that a nice outside view can increase Daily exposure to sun can help children get a good night's sleep Studies show a link between sun exposure and lower obesity rates productivity O SPECIFIC BENEFITS OF FRESH AIR CIRCULATION Improved levels of concentration Improved cognitive function Improved blood Improved mental well-being Strengthened immune system pressure In tests, cognitive function was shown to be 15% worse when the Co2 concentration was at around 945ppm (parts per million) compared to outdoor-fed air. When the concentrations were increased to 1,400ppm, cognitive function was shown to be 50% worse. con ppe O WHAT DO TEACHERS THINK OF MODERN CLASSROOMS? 2 in 10 9 in 10 teachers have considered quitting their job because of the condition of the school buildings they have to teach in every working day teachers believe that well-built and designed schools improve the educational outcomes of students, as well as their behaviour Whitesales Contact us Rooflights & more.
