Winter Solstice vs Summer Solstice

I’m trying to figure out what’s the ideal times to wake up & work, to soak up the most Sunlight… which I’m regarding as a precious resource.

I even want to move closer to the equator (North Carolina perhaps) to get more Sunlight… but I realize that since I’m a bat, I’m not even optimizing the amount of sunlight I get here in Massachusetts.

During the shortest day of the year (Dec 21, Winter Solstice) here in Massachusetts we only get 9 hours and 5 mins of sunlight.

During the longest day, (June 21, Summer Solstice), you’d get 15 hours and 15 minutes of Sunlight here… whoa what a huge difference!

If I was living on the equator, like say Singapore, I’ll get roughly the same amount of sunlight and daylight everyday, (12 hours) It’s like Equinox everyday! (Equinox means daylight and nighttime is equal in length)

If I want to develop a lifelong habit, and I currently live here, it seems to make sense to me to wake up by 7:15am everyday, to insure I’m always waking up when it’s brightest. Wish me luck!
