Ideally, everyone would love to get that 8 hours of sleep. But getting 8 hours of sleep appears to be a luxury in today’s fast-paced life. With longer working hours, 24/7 shift systems and higher stress and anxiety, a refreshing night of sleep seems to be unattainable for many of us. You wake up feeling drained more often than actually feeling refreshed! Bright light therapy can actually help in giving you the most optimal of sleeping experience.
Sleep is regulated by the circadian rhythm and the homeostat. The circadian rhythm is the so-called internal body clock and the homeostat keeps track of how long an individual stays awake. For these 2 sleep regulators to function properly, it is important to maintain a regular sleep routine. However, with work and school stress, it is very difficult to fall asleep, creating insomnia (also known as Delayed Circadian Rhythm Disorder). As a result, late sleepers have difficulties waking up and feel very tired and groggy during the day. This occurs because of a later release of melatonin (hormone responsible for making an individual feel sleepy). Bright light therapy in the early morning will help to alleviate these symptoms through a reduction in melatonin.
