According to chronobiology science, our bodies and minds need to know where they are in natural, non-time zone circadian time. Lack of that awareness can lead to depression, insomnia and worse. E.g., a poor sense of time & timing often comes with autism. And that kind of nature-deficit disorder is not just a problem for children. According to Richard Louv, author of the bestsellers Last Child in the Woods (2005) and The Nature Principle (2011), recent studies have shown that nature-deficit disorder affects "health, spiritual well-being, and many other areas, including [people's] ability to feel ultimately alive." http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2013/06/130628-richard-louv-nature-deficit-disorder-health-environment/
Use TT's patented displays of where you are in local natural time, both from sunrise to sunset to sunrise (and, optionally, also from moonrise to moonset to moonrise) as well as TT's unique color-coded mood tracking to both enhance feelings of well-being and increase mental focus. This feedback from artist and power user Alison Pilorz is a fast/easy way to discover what happens when we boldly break free of only seeing time in terms of ARTIFICIAL Time Zone times, and -- EVEN MORE ARTIFICIAL -- Daylight Saving Time. Especially when we are working indoors, and far away from a window...
“TrueTyme is an excellent app for getting yourself back on track! I found TrueTyme purely by chance when I was looking for a live wallpaper that would show the time. I like clocks, and the appearance appealed to me. I liked the idea of the sun and the moon going around. After I checked out their website and found out more about it, I was even more excited about it. I work in an office that’s in an old warehouse building. It’s no longer a warehouse, but space is rented out/sold to various businesses, and the company I work for is one of many that now occupy the building. Unfortunately, because it used to be a warehouse, the only windows are in the stairwells! You don’t realize how disconcerting it is to not know where the sun is relative to the time of day, until, of course, you can’t see it. Even after working there for months, I still didn’t quite realize how much it affected me, until I got TrueTyme. It made such a big difference knowing where the sun was in the sky. It actually helped me keep track of the time more than just looking at a clock. After about a week of using it, I got back in touch with the cycle of the day.
“Keeping track of my moods is another big help. I started to notice times of the day where I got tired or run down, and I was able to see how that changed as I began to be aware of the movement of the sun, even inside our windowless office! I also created my own option to keep track of how healthy I felt. I’d been getting sick a lot, so I used that to keep an eye on myself. If I noticed that I’d been feeling a little sick more often, I could nip it in the bud. The mood tracker is also a very good tool for me to use because I suffer from anxiety/panic disorder, and can get panic attacks. It lets me keep track of how I’m feeling, and lets me estimate if I’m going to have a “bad” day or not. I see it coming before it gets anywhere near bad, and can take steps to relax."

(User feedback requested: A few users have reported that near the time of the new moon their moon phases can be a little too large or a little too small. But their moon times are always super-accurate. If you have a problem, please let us know so we can put the fix in our next release.)
