New Delhi, Lifestyle Desk. Sunlight Benefits: Are you not going out in the sun at all due to your hectic routine or fear of heat stroke? It is true that no one is advised to go out in the sun during the day, but getting some sunlight every day is also important for our health. Whether it is early in the morning or in the evening when the sun is setting.
The circadian rhythm, or circadian cycle, is a natural process in our bodies that regulates the sleep-wake cycle and repeats approximately every 24 hours. Waking up with the sun, keeping a routine, exercising, limiting screen time, avoiding long naps and going to bed early are all things that can help us set our circadian clock right.
Dr. Andrew D. Huberman, a neuroscience professor at Stanford University, wrote in an Instagram post that we can adjust our circadian clock very easily. Going out in the sun early in the morning or late in the evening can fix our circadian clock. Neuroscientists say that this helps in getting a good night’s sleep and staying active during the day.
He adds that there is also evidence that getting your circadian schedule right can be beneficial for metabolism and immune system function.

Explaining the benefits of seeing natural light in the morning and evening, neurologists say that “the quality of that light is different at that time of day.”
Dr. Huberman explained how to get natural sunlight, which proves to be amazing for health. He said, “Nobody is perfect and we sometimes miss the start of the day or the midday sunlight, but try to get two types of sunlight a day as many days as possible. Morning sunlight is more important but you can take both.”
