We’ve all been there, lying wide-eyed in the middle of the night counting sheep. But what if there was a simple, scientific reason for your insomnia? Meditation expert Sarah Bernier Olin explains that while a dark room is best for sleeping at night, during the day your body needs a certain amount of natural light.
If you are not getting enough light during the day you can use bright light therapy to re-sync your body’s natural rhythm. It also helps with seasonal affective disorder. While it is a safe form of treatment, it is best to contact your physician before starting bright light therapy.
