As we step into March amidst the glow of brighter mornings, here at mojo&co, we’re keenly aware of the many benefits of morning light, especially the nourishing effects of natural sunlight. Its positive impact on both physical and mental well-being is undeniable. Alongside journaling, embracing this morning ritual promises to pave the way for an energizing and fulfilling day ahead & here’s why…..

1. Regulation of Circadian Rhythm: Exposure to morning light helps regulate the body’s internal clock, known as the circadian rhythm. This rhythm governs various physiological processes, including sleep-wake cycles, hormone production, and body temperature. Consistent exposure to natural light in the morning can help synchronize your circadian rhythm, leading to better sleep patterns and overall health.

2. Vitamin D: Sunlight exposure is a primary source of vitamin D, which plays a crucial role in bone health, immune function, and mood regulation. Spending time in the morning sun allows your skin to produce vitamin D more efficiently.

3. Improved Mood and Energy Levels: Morning light exposure has been linked to increased production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter associated with mood regulation and feelings of well-being. Sunlight exposure in the morning can help improve energy levels, reduce feelings of fatigue, and alleviate symptoms of seasonal affective disorder (SAD).

4. Enhanced Productivity and Alertness: Exposure to natural light in the morning can help boost alertness and cognitive function. Studies have shown that individuals exposed to morning light tend to be more alert, focused, and productive throughout the day compared to those who receive less light exposure.

5. Better Sleep Quality: Exposure to morning light helps regulate the body’s internal clock, promoting a healthy sleep-wake cycle. By signaling to the body that it’s time to wake up, morning light exposure can help improve sleep quality and make it easier to fall asleep at night.

6. Reduced Risk of Eye Disorders: Moderate exposure to natural sunlight, particularly in the morning, may help reduce the risk of certain eye conditions, such as myopia (nearsightedness) and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Sunlight exposure in the morning stimulates the release of dopamine in the retina, which is believed to play a role in eye health.

Overall, incorporating exposure to morning light, especially natural sunlight, into your daily routine can have numerous positive effects on your physical and mental well-being. At mojo&co we can vouch for that, having embraced morning walks and daylight exposure, we can say for certain that all of the above is true (It’s essential to balance sun exposure to avoid overexposure and the associated risks of sunburn and skin damage)
