Turn Off Your Lights

Are you getting too much light at night? Might sound like a silly question, but studies have shown that too much exposure to dim light at night can be linked to depression as well as alter our body’s normal hormonal responses. The increase in dim light exposure is due to people staying up late and watching TV, working on the computer, or even just having a night-light. When our bodies lack sufficient time in darkness it can suppress the release of melatonin, change our natural circadian rhythms, and can also make us more susceptible to obesity, diabetes, and reproductive problems.[1]

Minimize your time in front of the TV or computer at night! Give your body the chance to get back to a normal light-dark cycle and a natural rhythm.
