How did we humans manage to make something as basic as sleep so complicated? On the surface, sleep is quite simple, but the irony is that advances we have made over the years to make our lives easier have produced a myriad of sleep problems.
Disruption #1: Light. In ancient times, when the sun went down, it was time to sleep. A fire could extend the day somewhat, but without lights, we had little choice but to sleep. Modern times have no such limitation. With the advent of electricity, it is now possible to work around the clock. Overnight shift workers can attest to this.
Suggestion: Turn off as many lights as possible as the day winds down. Leave on only the lights necessary for safe movement.
Additional Benefit: Your electricity bill will go down and your wallet will thank you.
