Are Your House Lights Causing You Sleep Issues?
Before the inventions of indoor lighting and electronics, our circadian rhythm was established by the natural lighting in our environment. The sun would rise, signaling to our bodies that it was time to wake up and cause a release of hormones. As the sun would start to go down at night and the amount of light decreased, our bodies would start to slow down, start secreting our sleep hormone, and go to sleep when dark.
Unfortunately, our indoor lighting and electronics are confusing our bodies and shifting our circadian rhythms causing sleep issues at night. Find out more information in this video about how light affects our sleep and how to better manage our indoor lighting.
