  2. 2. The Impact lighting has on health Lighting plays a huge part in your life. Daylight has positive biological effects on people. It plays a part in ensuring well-being throughout the course of the day and restful sleep during the night. If you don't have natural lighting it could impact your mental health in various ways for example it can be a factor in the cause of Seasonal Affective Disorder.
  3. 3. Production of Melatonin Melatonin is a hormone that your pineal gland in the brain secretes. This is a hormone that makes you feel sleepy. In people who have Seasonal Affective Disorder, the body may produce it in higher than normal levels. Natural light prevents the production of this hormone.
  4. 4. Production of Serotonin Serotonin is a hormone also produced in the pineal gland in the brain. It affects your mood, appetite and your sleeping patterns. A lack of natural light may lead to lower serotonin levels, which is linked to feelings of depression.
