Productivity and Cognitive Performance:

  • Natural light has been linked to increased alertness and improved cognitive performance.
  • Daylight exposure in workplaces has been associated with higher productivity and reduced errors.

Mood and Well-being:

  • Exposure to natural light, especially sunlight, is associated with improved mood and increased feelings of well-being.
  • Sunlight exposure stimulates the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter linked to mood regulation.

Depression and Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD):

  • Lack of exposure to natural light, particularly during the winter months, has been linked to an increased risk of depression and Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
  • Light therapy, involving exposure to bright artificial light, is a common treatment for SAD.
