PART THREE - B: OUTOOR CIRCADIAN ENVIRONMENTS

Dim indoor environments lead to polyphasic sleep requirements1; but if you can’t sleep during the day, it can feel like fatigue
Chronotype on a populations-basis depends on time spent outside per day; on an individual basis this can vary2
Women in their childbearing years tend to have a later chronotype than their male counterparts
Gene expression frequencies vary by latitude
Suddenly increasing the amount of light can trigger episodes in individuals with bipolar disorder and scizophrenia3
Our eyes and skin have receptors that process different kinds of light to send signals throughout the body4
Grounding in nature (earthing) gives bioelectric information and anti-inflammatory electron resources to the body5
Oxidative stress = excess protons / positive charge
Antioxidants = free electrons / negative charge
Diet and environment both contribute to oxidative balance (redox)
Rule of thumb: aim for 2+ hours grounding outside across th…
