We spend more than 90% of our time indoors and shielded from daylight. Indoors the light level is the same as the light outdoors at sunrise or sunset. Light from outside is not able to reach into our buildings. Therefore indoors we live in twilight the whole day. For our daylight detector this twilight during the day is too dark and in the evening too bright. Therefore our biological clock starts running behind the real time.
Many buildings are designed so that natural light cannot reach the people who live or work there, which can have negative effects on their health. When our biological clock runs behind the real time, it affects your sleep, health, concentration and mood.
