Background: In today’s modern society, people spend most of their time in buildings where they are usually exposed to a mere fraction of daylight. This, combined with artificial lighting in the evening, leads to a decrease in the contrast of the photic signal between day and night, which is essential for proper circadian entrainment. Insufficient exposure to bright daylight has been associated with disrupted synchronization of circadian rhythms and related consequences for health, quality of sleep, mood and overall well-being. This study aimed to explore whether winter morning exposure to electric lighting with unique, daylight-mimicking qualities provided by an experimental phototherapy booth prototype called Sun spa would have a significant effect on mood, sleep quality and circadian rhythmicity of healthy volunteers.
