Your Opinion: How Does Sunlight Affect You?

Sunrise in MinnesotaHave you noticed the change in daylight? I was driving yesterday morning, at the same time as usual, but the light outside was so much brighter. In fact, it was so different from the previous week, I thought I was LATE!

Our sunrise here in north central Minnesota last Friday, Feb. 29, was at 6:57 a.m. Today the sunrise was at 6:44 a.m. What time was your sunrise?

Minutes do matter.

For light lovers and those affected by seasonal affective disorders this is great news.

Personally, I think many of us suffer a little bit by less sunlight in the winter, we just don’t call it a disorder. In fact, while it is very, very cold here today and snow is still on the ground, the sunlight is mood lifting.

UPDATED NOTE: I have been reminded that daylight saving time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday, March 9. We will move our clocks forward one hour. Then, our sunrise will be at 7:41 a.m. on Sunday. Umm . . . .well, we still will have more daylight . . . just moving it from one end of the day to another.

What impact does sunlight have on your mood and energy level?
