    Is as much daylight as possible best for health? Is there anything such as too much daylight?

    Thanks for reading.

    Daylight is necessary for making vitamin D, but this time of year in the UK the sun is not intense enough to make vitamin D anyway. If you get enough daylight in the summer, you will have enough vitamin D in your body to last the winter. You can also get vitamin D from food and supplements.

    Daylight is also helpful for mental health and maintaining sleep patterns.

    Too much daylight can affect your ability to sleep, for example if you lived in a part of the world where the sun does not set in the middle of summer you might need thick curtains to block out the light when you are trying to sleep.

    It can also cause sunburn, but that is obviously not much of a concern in winter.
