What do "Colour, Sunshine and Sleep" have in common?

Nothing is more effective then lifting your mood with sunshine, a natural anti-depressant! Sunlight is our main provider of light, heat and energy. Light consists of the seven colour energies: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. These colours have each a different wavelength and vibrational frequency, which hold various attributes and affect us differently. Science has proven that certain colours can calm the mind while others stimulate mental activity.
Light is colour nutrition for the body and our general well-being. Colours physically affect organs, glands and hormones; therefore they influence our mood and feelings.

Did you know that it's important for your wake/sleep pattern to be out in the daylight a minimum of 2 hours per day? And that you absorb light as a nutrient through your eyes? Synthesis and secretion of melatonin (the sleep hormone) is dramatically affected by light exposure to the eyes. Daylight stimulates the Pineal Gland in the brain, which is responsible for the wake/sleep cycle. Make sure not to cover your eyes all the time with grey sunglasses, as you'll be missing out on important nutrition. If you are "stuck" indoors, invest in a full spectrum light bulb to make up for it. Just make sure it's a good quality with equal parts of the 7 rainbow colours. Deep sleep is the best way to keep your body healthy. Melatonin stimulates the immune system and also plays a role in slowing down the aging process.
