‘Renew You Challenge’ – Do you have trouble falling asleep? Do you wake up a lot during the night, or have a hard time waking up in the morning? Insomnia can be a real downer, especially since it affects how you feel during the day, and not just at night—so here’s a quick tip that might help you find relief.
If you’re among the millions of people who suffer from insomnia, try this: Do your best to create a darker sleeping environment, since complete darkness is the best environment for deep sleep. And no, I’m not saying you should go sleep in a cave or lock yourself in the closet, but take a look around your bedroom and ask yourself if it’s really dark enough for healthy sleep. Is there an outside light shining through the window? Are there electronic devices like clocks or computers blinking or lighting up the space? Or worse, do you sleep with the TV on??
This week, try to make your bedroom as dark as possible, then see how it affects your sleep over the next week or so. With any luck, it’ll be just what you needed!
