“As people spend more time indoors staring at computer and television screens, scientists are starting to appreciate how exposure to sunlight affects various body systems.”
☀️ The amount of sunlight you get has myriad effects on your body, from your metabolism to your immune system and mood. This TIME article breaks down the science behind just how important it is in every aspect of your life — including sleep.
👓 The importance of sunlight is all well and good… but what if you’re on the night shift or just naturally a night owl?
