  • Spending some time in the sun is a great way to raise your energy levels, don't you think?

  • But did you know that natural sunlight has innumerable health benefits, both physically and emotionally?

  • Today, we're going to give you the top 5 reasons why you should spend more time in the sun during your day-to-day life.

  • 1. Natural sunlight improves productivity and lifts your mood

  • You've probably already heard that depression can happen during long periods of bad weather.

  • But have you thought that maybe spending time in the sun is a sort of anti-depressant?

  • Being exposed to natural light improves your productivity and gives you more energy to finish your daily chores.

  • 2. Regulates your circadian rhythm

  • The longer we stay inside, the more messed up our circadian rhythm (internal clock) gets.

  • This is due to the fact that artificial light affects melatonin production, which is responsible for our bodies sleep schedule.

  • Do you think that your internal clock is irregular?

  • Take a week off work to enjoy the sun!

  • If you can't take a week off, at least take advantage of the windows in your home, in order to improve your sleep.

  • 3. More natural light, less electric energy

  • The more natural light your house is exposed to, the less electricity you'll need to light it, and the less money you'll spend on electricity.

  • 4. It improves eyesight

  • Think twice before putting on your sunglasses when leaving the house.

  • Recent studies show that natural light is good for your eyes, while artificial light (from the TV, our cellphones and computers) can harm our eyesight.

  • There are studies that show that people who work at night, without sun exposure, are more susceptible to different types of cancer and other diseases.

  • 5. It improves sleep quality.

  • Have you heard about the negative effects of the "blue" light emitted by your smartphone at night?

  • Artificial lights interrupt our body's melatonin production, affecting our ability to fall asleep.

  • People who use artificial illumination at night normally sleep worse.

  • Being in contact with natural light throughout the day will give you energy during the day and make it easier for you to fall asleep at night.

  • With all of these benefits, it should be easier for you to understand why you should expose yourself to natural light more often, be it at home or at work.
