  1. Standardized beta’s (with 95 % confidence intervals in brackets) from linear mixed model analyses with a random intercept and slope over time (one-hour periods), nested within the dates at which measurement commenced. Results were adjusted for age, gender, average temperature, average duration of rainfall, and average duration of sunshine per day. Bold number represents statistical significance at p < 0.05
