Light at night is not natural, at least not a lot of it and not anything but incandescent (fire) light. Most of us reduce light in our homes at night (or least know we should), but the kind of light are using can have as big an impact on your sleep as the amount of light. What sort of impact? And how does this negative impact happen? Tune in to find out, and of course discover ways to get natural restorative sleep!
In episode 9 of the Sleep On It podcast, I describe the rhythmic nature of sleep which, when lined up with the obvious natural sleepiness that builds the longer you are awake, helps you fall asleep at a consistent time each night. But lining up these two sleep drives isn’t done at bedtime. Have a listen to hear how you can make this alignment, and how two guys deep in a Kentucky cave last century showed that the sleep/wake rhythm is not as exact as you might think!
