Sitting in the cubicle by the window at work could improve your health.
 
A new study finds office workers with more natural light exposure during their day seep better, exercise more and have a better overall quality of life than those without light.
 
In fact, windows in the workplace was linked to 173-percent more light exposure and translated to an average of 46 minutes more sleep per night for employees.  
 
Experts say designers should make sure workstations are within 20 to 25 feet of the windowed walls to get these beneficial effects for employees.
