Why light is such a big deal

Join Dr. Stillman for Q&A on Substack

The Three Key Segments of Light

Light can be classified into three main categories: infrared, visible, and ultraviolet. While infrared light is felt as heat and affects our skin, visible light influences our circadian rhythms and sleep-wake cycles. On the other hand, ultraviolet light, despite its association with skin cancer, also plays a role in hormone regulation and vitamin D production.

The Importance of Natural Light

Getting enough natural light is crucial for a healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, many people overlook the importance of actively seeking sunlight, especially if they work indoors or live in cold regions. However, there are ways to overcome these barriers. By improving diet, exercising, and using saunas to support metabolism and cold tolerance, individuals can reap the benefits of natural light.
