As we enter colder months in the northern hemisphere, the shortening days illuminate the effect sunlight has on us on a day-to-day basis. Though it may come as no surprise that natural lighting is better for you than artificial lighting, exactly how it can improve productivity has become an area of increasing interest.

As imagined, they preferred the aesthetic of daylight, but their state of alertness and mood also improved significantly in these conditions. The study revealed that the different lights that enter our eyes actually have an effect on the chemistry in our bodies.
