Is there a connection between sunlight exposure in your office and quality of sleep at night?

A study shows that the natural lighting in your workplace, whether it is sunlight streaming in or darkness in the cubicle could affect sleep.

During a study of 49 office goers who worked in offices with windows or without windows, researchers collected information on the quality of life and sleep from all the study participants. There was a connection between receiving more sunlight in the office during the day, and sleeping well at night.

Quality of sleep was better for those who had windows at office rather than those who worked in offices without windows.

"Day-shift office workers' quality of life and sleep may be improved via emphasis on light exposure and lighting levels in current offices as well as in the design of future offices," study researcher Ivy Cheung said.
