Why You Can't Get Good Sleep - The Single Most Important Factor Preventing you from Getting Better Sleep
People often overlook the most important factor that affects the quality of their sleep. This component is light. Light, natural or artificial, is the single most important factor to determining how we sleep, when we sleep and how long we sleep for. Light can be used to enhance sleep and to thwart it, depending on the time of day it is received.
Therefore, it is important to stay away from light when the body is ready to sleep. It is especially relevant in this day and age where our mobile devices make it so deceivingly easy for us to receive light while inadvertently impairing our ability to fall asleep gracefully.
