Suggested reading on circadian rhythms and light exposure

A couple of articles I've been reading that I wanted to let you know about.

An article on SeparationsNow.com called "Clocking On" discusses circadian rhythms and how they work.

Seasonal affective disorder (or SAD) is a mental health issue that has some similarities with shiftwork since light exposure is a critical element to good health and mood. An article in today's issue of The Gazette (Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA) Wintertime depression: a sad state provides a nice overview.
