Writing under a tree or taking my lunch break outside. Plants use sunlight to convert their rays and energy and the same holds true for us.

When our eyes are exposed to the sun’s light, the pineal gland is notified to halt production of melatonin the sleep-inducing hormone until it gets dark outside and it’s time for rest. Once the sun goes down, our body notifies itself that melatonin production can begin again, and we will begin to feel tired. When we confine ourselves to being indoors all day, we are depriving our eyes of sunlight, resulting in an overproduction of melatonin during the day.
