Getting Enough Sunshine
I cannot over emphasize how important this is! The amount of natural sunlight that enters your eyes has a drastic effect on your temperature body rhythm.
When we’re exposed to high intensity light, our body temperature increases, and melatonin levels rapidly decrease.
Exposure to natural sunlight also delays the temperature drop. This allows you to stay awake and alert for longer periods of time.
Lack of sunlight results in higher melatonin levels, this leads to lower body temperature levels, feeling very sleepy, and tired through out the day.
Lack of sunlight will create a flat-line effect in your body temperature, because it will not get a chance to rise high enough, your body temperature won’t fall low enough during the night either. If your body temperature is flat-lined, this could cause major sleeping problems, and it will be very difficult for you to sleep deeply for long periods of time. A lot of people who complain about “poor sleep” usually don’t get enough sunlight.
Consider how for the most part of our evolution we were always outside during the day, it seemed that nature intended us to be this way, then suddenly over the past 100 years we drastically changed our exposure to natural sunlight. Most of us hardly get any sun today at all! We drive to work in a car, we wear sunglasses, we work in offices, what kind of effect do you think this has on our sleep clock?
