5 Benefits Of Sunlight Through Windows

Sunlight that enters our home or workplace through windows has numerous benefits. Here are a few of the biggest advantages of sunlight. 

1. Strengthens Immune System

Vitamin D is so important to our immune system. With that being said, direct exposure to sunlight provides a great source of this nutrient. A healthy immune system gives you the best chance to fight illness, some cancers and infections. Stay by the window or head outside to take in sunshine, daily. 

2. Reduces Stress

Melatonin reduces stress sensitivity and going outside helps give your body a natural balance of melatonin. This could quickly help reduce your stress levels. Additionally, if you decide to take in sunlight outdoors, it generally means you are being physically active. That exercise can further aid in lowering stress.

3. Improves Sleep

Melatonin is a hormone that is vital in helping you get a restful sleep. Your body will begin producing this hormone when darkness sets in, meaning you’ll start to feel tired about 2 hours after the sun sets. This is one of the reasons why our bodies allow us to stay up later during the summer months.

Studies show that 1 hour of natural sunlight in the morning time will help you sleep better at night. The more sunlight exposure in your life, the better chance your body generates melatonin when it’s time to rest.

4. Staves Off Depression

There is scientific reasoning that shows sunshine will improve our moods. Sunshine increases our body’s serotonin levels, improving moods and helping us to stay calm and focused. Increased sunlight exposure can help in easing the symptoms of seasonal affective disorder. Mood changes undoubtedly occur during the colder months due to a decrease in sunlight

5. Longer Life

While this is something scientists continue to study, research that followed 30,000 Swedish women concluded that those who spent more time in the sun lived between 6 months to 2 years longer than those who experienced less sunlight.
