Light the Way to Sleep

Light is arguably the most impactful outside factor to your sleep quality. Of course, sleeping in the dark is required for most people, but the light surrounding you before you sleep is also important. In this article, we will discuss how light affects your sleep, and how you can make the best light decisions to sleep better.

The light your eyes consume the hours before you sleep is very impactful to how you will sleep, and your overall health. Your circadian rhythm can easily be affected when exposed to bright lights, as well as blue light. Blue light also heavily affects how much melatonin is produced in your body. Blue light is processed by your brain as light similar to sunlight, therefore melatonin production is suppressed. This keeps you awake, changing your sleep schedule, and making you late the next morning.

To get the best sleep, have a transition light you use only before you sleep. Your brain will naturally associate this light with sleep, allowing an easy transition from bed to lights out.

Also try your best to keep electronics away from the bed. Phones often have a sleep setting for this reason.
