Ambient Summer Light Sources Effects on Sleep

It can be more difficult, at this time of year, to feel like you’re getting a deep, restful sleep.
The light that enters your windows from late sunsets and very early sunrises can easily steal precious minutes of sleep by affecting your body’s ability to produce and regulate melatonin.
It’s not just sunlight. Do what you can to block all little tiny sources of light that are in your bedroom.
Alarm clocks and various, tiny power button lights inside can all have a negative effect just like sunshine from outside.
Some people can remedy the situation by taking melatonin supplements. For some people like me, they just don’t work or even make sleep more fitful.
That’s why it’s important to reduce ambient light in the bedroom from both interior and exterior sources, especially in the Summer months.
