Lack of Light Affects Mood and Energy
Today's lifestyles are causing many to spend the majority of working and leisure time indoors. We may go to work in the dark, work in a window-less office and come home in the dark. This loss of light creates a state of light deprivation. Our bodies depend on the signals from bright sunlight at dawn and weak sunlight at dusk. Unfortunately, we may not be getting these needed signals anymore.
