See the light

via Tumblr

Everyone’s ecstatic about the extra hour of daylight this week. They get an hour less sleep but gain an extra hour of daylight.

Daylight Saving Time and warmer weather improve mood and human behavior. Do you think Silicon Valley would be as innovative if had to deal with snow? Cold and gloominess can impede life’s activities.

But don’t blame the weather. Everyone has access to the same amount of light, even if it’s not natural. We can work forever next to halogen lights. We can even use our phones to work in the dark.

Creativity is neutral to the weather. In some cases, it thrives off doom and gloom. But good weather helps facilitate positive thinking. Natural sunlight and warm weather just make getting things done a lot better.
