I'm aware now that lighting can and does affect my mood, awareness, and productivity when I am doing a job or studying.

I feel safer in the dark. I slept this afternoon, and I knew I would be better this evening when less light was around.

I worked a 2nd shift job when I got out of college, and I loved it. Work was at night, I trusted the other people, I rode my bike home in the dark, and I lived alone. Darkness has always been a friend. I never knew this completely.

This is true for me. And I'm struggling with it today. I want it to be dark, but I live in Florida, and one of the darkest places in the house is the bedroom. But I get too triggered and afraid in there. (The body remembers).

Thought I'd let someone know.
