Bright Ideas for Better Sleep

b2ap3_thumbnail_Fotolia_60004772_XS.jpgGetting enough good quality sleep is a cornerstone of maintaining good health and resilience. The list of benefits that we get from sleep is long and growing longer all the time. Yet, sleep deprivation is a very real and persistent problem in our modern culture.

Even when we try to get sleep, it sometimes eludes us. While that can stem from a variety of reasons, a very important one is how our circadian rhythm is affected by natural and artifical light.

I recently experienced worsening sleep after a number of days of gray weather, and this led me to do some personal experimenting with lighting. I'm happy to report that my experience confirms what the science says and now my sleep is back on track again.

Here's a quick summary of strategies I recommend:

  • Consider a light-box — If you're in a climate or a season where natural daylight is diminished, you can make your own.
  • Take a walk in the sunshine— Both walking and sunlight exposure are good for improving sleep.
  • Avoid white light close to bedtime - Light from electronic devices can disrupt your sleep.

In the short video below, I share more specifics.
