You might be one of the many people who spend most of their time indoors. Do you have trouble sleeping, or lack energy and are you moody sometimes? Not getting enough natural daylight can be the reason why! If you are shielded from daylight, or as we call it Good Light, it’s an unnatural situation for our bodies and brains to be in.
Light tells our brain what time of day it is. It helps to synchronize the master clock in our brains. However, the light levels indoors are too weak to trigger the master clock properly. We live on an earth with a 24 hour light dark cycle and a social clock that also has a 24 hour rhythm. But when our bodies are not synchronized, this leads to negative consequences for sleep quality, energy, mood and health. We need more good light during the day and less light in the evening.
