  • Stimulate those neurons in the eye and convey to the brain that it is day time, and to be Alert!
  • It sets in motion, numerous biological cascades within every cell and organs of our body.
  • This gives a healthy bump in a hormone called as Cortisol. Cortisol comes from Amygdala that promotes wakefulness and healthy immune system. It happens once in 24 hours.
  • We can time Cortisol bump, based on when we view bright sunlight. It is not about exposure of skin to sunlight, but the exposure of our eyes, our neural retinas, to light.
