You too can feel fatigue creeping in. The days get shorter, the nights get longer. This period has an impact on your health, the lack of light has an impact on our health.
By simplifying things, light serves, among other things, to maintain a good balance between sleeping and waking up, respecting our circadian rhythm and the secretion of neurotransmitters.
- At night: The epiphysis (small endocrine gland located in the brain) secretes melatonin during the night, which induces our sleep.
– Day: As soon as day breaks, our eyes (their retinas in particular) perceive daylight. Melatonin then gives way to dopamine which boosts us in the morning and serotonin which regulates our mood.
So don't hesitate to expose yourself to daylight for at least 15 minutes every day.
Some other advice, go to bed at set times, avoid screens at least 1 hour before bedtime, possibly consider a course of light therapy.
