Yet, most of the artificial light we’re exposed to is not like sunlight (which our physiology is attuned to), and can leave us feeling lethargic when we should be energized and alert, distracted or agitated when we should be calm, or excited when we should be relaxed. The term “biological darkness” has been coined to describe this unhealthy, energy-draining light.
Now couple the notion of biological darkness with the startling fact that 93% of our time is spent indoors (under artificial light), and it’s no surprise we have such high rates of insomnia, anxiety, depression, attention deficit, and other performance related challenges.
Proper lighting won’t cure all such problems, but it can certainly help.
