As we have already known, sleep decides of who we are. Without sleep, we can not do anything; our body will be totally affected especially when we are facing sleep deprivation. Only when we have a good enough quality of sleep at night, can we feel lucid, energetic, and full of vigor.

Sunlight helps to fix sleep deprivation effects

Busy life in today modern world has unexpected effects on our body and health which make us tough to get through. One of those effects we can not ignore is sleep deprivation. Needless to say, sleep deprivation has so many annoying effects on our health. How we can enjoy our life in the most meaningful and joyful without suffering any sleep deprivation effects may be the endless question without any right answer. There are a few to know that sunlight has a close connection with our sleep in which sunlight seems to be the main factor to have straight effects on the quality of our sleep.
As we have already known, sleep decides of who we are. Without sleep, we can not do anything; our body will be totally affected especially when we are facing sleep deprivation. Only when we have a good enough quality of sleep at night, can we feel lucid, energetic, and full of vigor.
Research has shown that the amount of sunlight that our eyes are exposed at day time makes relevant influences on our sleep at night. Then we will have a strong will, concentration on working and producing more values for the society. It’s certain that we can be still alive if there’s not sunlight; however, our productivity will significantly decrease. Instead of that, we may feel lethargic and sleepy all the time.
Have you ever wondered why we have to sleep? What factor makes us feel that we have to go to sleep or we go to sleep because it’s the night? The answer is in our body. There’s a biological hormone called melatonin which triggers our drowsiness. The triggering process of melatonin happens when the amount of melatonin in our blood is too high. At day time, when our body exposes under the sun, the amount of melatonin decreases making we more awake and energetic. At night, the melatonin level in our blood is at the highest and this time we have to sleep. That’s why in the gloomy day, we are in the drowsy mood all the time, and it is when our body needs some sunlight. Melatonin is released when we are exposed to the sunlight.
Another factor that decides on our sleep quality is our body temperature. At daytime, when we are exposed to the sun, our body temperature is high which means that we are awake and full of energy. At night, in the darkness, our body temperature slowly decreases leading to our drowsiness and lethargy. And as a result, we are sure to have a deep sleep and a healthy life.
All in all, the melatonin together with our body temperature creates a cycle of our sleep which makes us sleep better at night. If we are lacking sunlight, there is a disorder of melatonin’s conversion and body temperature. As a result, we will have sleep disorder, maybe temporary or even chronic insomnia.

I know I get a better nights sleep after a day outside. Actually, I have stayed in doors for the last few weeks. Not taking my usual 1 hour outside with my dog Bugg and I have to say, it has effected my sleep. Good info. Thank you for sharing.:)
