Hi everyone, in this short article you will gain access to take control of your sleep and health as well.
Sleep is critical to optimal health, daily functioning, and mental well being. You know that. And you know you probably need more sleep than you get. When you sleep, your body heals.
It’s like putting gas back in the vehicle.
You need it!
A study by Harvard researchers compared the effects of blue light to green light. They found that blue light suppresses the sleep hormone, melatonin, for about twice as long – and shifted your internal time clock by twice as much! Blue light also spurs cognitive function and raises levels of alertness to those we are accustomed to experiencing during daylight hours.*
Your eyes may have the strongest influence on good sleep. When the eye senses light or darkness, it signals the brain to release various chemicals.
These chemicals establish sleep patterns. If the eye senses light, no matter the time of day, it tells the brain it’s time to wake up. In this non-stop, 24/7 world, we all need a few biohacks to improve our sleep at night for nonstop energy during the day
WHY IT WORKS
Sleep may be more important than even most health experts realize. A lack of sleep can negatively impact the immune system. It disrupts the production of cortisol and growth hormones. It decreases leptin and increases ghrelin, two hormones that influence appetite. This imbalance may lead to overeating and weight gain.
Your body has an internal timekeeper controls your body’s circadian rhythms: it directs your sleep, metabolism, and body temperature. It regulates cortisol, melatonin, and other hormone levels. Your circadian rhythms promote sleep at night and alertness during the day. In short, your circadian rhythm helps you live in harmony with both day and night cycles. If you alter the input of light to this internal clock, you may have trouble sleeping
One of the reasons sunlight is so good for our health, including mood, is the full spectrum of light it delivers. Incandescent light bulbs do not include the full spectrum frequency; neither do traditional fluorescent lights that are commonly used in office buildings. A special “full-spectrum” light bulb can ease feelings of sleepiness, nervousness, and irritability. Even energy-efficient LED light bulbs produce more blue light than traditional lighting.
3 SLEEP TIPS FOR A DEEP AND RESTFUL SLUMBER, ALL NIGHT EVERY NIGHT
BLOCK THE BLUE LIGHT: That blue light frequency stops your body’s production of melatonin, making it harder to fall asleep. Install red lights to fixtures in rooms where you spend your evening, including the bedroom. Red light has the least influence on shifting your circadian rhythms and may even kick-start melatonin production. Even the smallest amount of light – from a streetlight or a full moon – can alter your sleep.
