Sunrise and sunset times: When does it start getting lighter? Full schedule for the month

Stonehenge: Incredible sunrise captured during VIP tour

Starting work when it’s dark and finishing work when it’s dark has meant many of us have struggled to get out and about during the current UK lockdown. It has also meant thousands of people have been suffering with their mental health in recent weeks, finding themselves feeling a little down and unable to lift their spirits. But there’s good news ahead as we slowly but surely creep into the spring-summer months.

Getting out and about in the sunshine is incredibly beneficial for us all.

From the exposure to natural Vitamin D to reducing anxiety, sunshine has a lot of positive benefits.

Sunlight also helps boost your body’s levels of serotonin, which in turn gives you more energy and helps to keep you feeling positive.

So when will it start to get lighter? Express.co.uk has tracked the sunrise and sunset for the next month so you can look forward to sunnier skies.

When does it start getting lighter?

At the moment, we’re only seeing about 8 hours and 45 minutes of sunshine a day, with the sun rising just before 8am and setting at about 4.30pm.

Compared to the height of summer, when the sun can rise at 5am and set just before 10pm, that’s a significant reduction of daylight hours.

But as we creep out of winter, the good news that an extra hour of daylight in each 24 hours period is not far off.

By January 28, we’ll see nine full hours of sunshine per day, rising to 10 hours a day by February 14.

Just two weeks later, we’ll see almost 11 hours of sunshine a day, giving us all plenty of time to get out and about for that Vitamin D and serotinin boost.
