Don’t forget to get your daily dose of sunshine

When John Denver sang “Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy,” he spotlighted full-spectrum light’s ability to influence mood and health. And a new study reinforces just how important it is to get your daily dose of sunshine. Nurses exposed to natural light had lower blood pressure, were more alert, had better interaction with colleagues, laughed more and had better moods when dealing with patients than those who never saw the light. Another study found that workers in windowless offices had more physical problems and worse sleep habits than their windowed colleagues.
