How much time do you spend indoors every day?

How much time do you spend indoors every day? 10 hours? 15? Try more than 21 for the average American. That’s about 90 percent of the day. We’re at home; visiting others; at work; in cars, busses or trains; at school; in stores, fitness centers, churches, health care facilities and more; all indoors. And most people don’t realize how buildings and what’s in them affect our health and well–being.

Can better health

Here’s how we find out

Our research aims to understand how indoor environments affect five factors: health, stress and resiliency, performance, sleep, and comfort. People in our studies go about their day-to-day lives in a simulated, real-world environment, while scientists adjust elements such as sound, lighting, temperature and air quality. Unobtrusive sensors monitor biometric reactions and self-reporting tools garner additional insights.
