How to Fall Asleep Faster at Night
Do you have trouble sleeping at night? It may be that there is too much light in your room. The exposure to light in your bedroom plays a fundamental role in determining whether or not you’re getting an effective night’s sleep.
Sleeping in complete darkness is proven to be better for your health. You'll feel well rested if you sleep in total darkness. Cells in your body called hypothalamus, are those that respond to signals that indicate whether you see dark or light. The nerves are able to signal to the brain that it is morning time which means it’s time to get out of bed! Moreover, the amount of light in your room determines how much melatonin is produced by your body. The darker your room, the better. Melatonin is a hormone that controls your sleep cycle. Natural production of melatonin helps the body to fall asleep at night.
If you’re having trouble sleeping at night, try adding elements to make your room as dark as possible. This may include dark curtains that stop natural light from coming through, drapes, or even an eye mask!
