One of the most favourite topics of discussion in Norway is the sun. How long it shined for, if it’s coming back, when it shone last time. Norwegians emphasise so much on the sun, apparently because half of the year they live in almost complete darkness. What is widely known as “winter blues” the Scandinavians are among the peoples who experience it most, due to their homelands’ geographical location.
It is not coincidental that many ancient civilizations worshipped this blazing round disc as God. The sun is a source of life.
But while the relationship between sunlight, psychological health and productivity has been thoroughly researched, there has been less emphasis on the impact of sunlight at workplace on sleep, quality of life and overall health. A 2014 study published at the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine found that office workers with more light exposure at the workplace tended to have longer sleep duration, better sleep quality, more physical activity, and better quality of life compared to office workers with less light exposure at the workplace.
In Scandinavia, they try to counter the effects of sunlight lack in various ways. For example by putting ceiling lights in classrooms that simulate being outside on a sunny day, by sending people in white rooms filled with bright light in what’s called light therapy and by even installing heliostats, mirrors that move accordingly to keep track of the sun and reflect it on the town.
In any case, the conclusion undoubtedly is that we need the sun like babies need breastfeeding. So, whether working in an office with poor daylight or living in a country with long winters, why not take a great, literally sun-kissed break?
