Feeling a bit drained? This could be because, like many people, you spend the majority of your time indoors, away from natural daylight!
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.
When your biological clock is out of sync with the natural times of the day, it can result to a constant feeling of weariness. Aligning yourself more with natural light and the rhythms of the day can significantly alleviate feelings of constant fatigue. So, embrace the outdoors or expose yourself to good light to feel more in tune and energised.
