Workers in natural lighting stayed on-task for 15% longer on average. Researchers at Northwestern University in Chicago found the same – but also noted that a lack of light exposure during the day led to losing an average of 46 minutes of sleep at night (and we already know how important sleep is!)

 

Why? Mirjam Muench from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology discovered that exposure to natural light improved alertness, while artificial light left people sleepy and stressed. Under poor lighting conditions, cortisol levels drop, leaving you more stressed and less able to stabilize your energy levels.
