Long days in the office away from natural light can impact how awake you are and can make your brain sleepy as well. Things like LED lights and TV’s/computer screens can actually make your body think it’s time to wake up.
Little things like feeling the light on your face from the sun can actually help you wake up. Setting a time that is easy for you to wake up and sticking to it is very important. Try your morning coffee outside, in the daylight even. Daylight is very good for you, and can actually boost your mood. If you work in an office, try to take your breaks outside. Another great way to keep awake during the day is to let as much natural light into your home/or office.
Try to avoid TV screens and monitors at least 2 hours before bedtime. If you keep your television on to try to fall asleep because of the dark, try a night light that won’t be as harsh on your eyes. Keeping the lights down and it dark while your sleeping or getting ready to sleep is another trick that could help you get a good night’s sleep.
And lastly, for all you readers before bed, there are products that are meant for reading before bed. Do a search on what some of those products may be and how they are recommended for night time readers. We found one that may help called the Nook Glow Light. This light may help you determine when it is time to go to bed without being distracted by a light.
These are just a few ways to help your sleeping schedule out. Whether it’s turning off your television or going for a light walk before bed, these are the helpful ways to keep you energetic during your day.
