Does light exposure affect your well-being?
You might feel different as the daylight hours reduce
A lot of public health messages focus on the dangers of overexposure to the sun's rays. But while it's true that we have to pay attention to the health risks and we must always be careful in the sun, it's also possible to not get enough daylight. This is especially true as the winter months close in, a time when we spend more of our days indoors as daylight hours reduce. While too much strong sunlight can indeed be very damaging (and we should take precautions), our body can also feel a strain from too little light. In fact, there are a number of health outcomes associated with light exposure.
