Exposure to light can disrupt sleep, making it difficult to fall asleep or even stay asleep. Lack of sleep has been linked to obesity, diabetes, immune system dysfunction, impaired judgment, disorientation and irritability. Using blinds and shades to control light can be your first step towards achieving a good night's sleep.
"The immune system doesn't work well if we don't sleep," says David P. White, McGinness professor of sleep medicine and director of the sleep disorders program at Brigham and Women's Hospital. "Most think sleep serves some neurological process to maintain homeostasis in the brain."
Some people most affected by light are those who work during the night or those suffering from jet lag. However, streetlights and light pollution, especially in major cities, can affect one's ability to rest well.
In the bedroom, diminish all light in order to establish a nocturnal atmosphere. Any light trickling in from windows, whether it is sunlight or streetlights, should be blocked. Blackout shades over windows can offer a good solution. Many window blinds and shades come with a blackout liner option. Shades on tracks not only offer insulation, but can also provide a complete blackout solution.
To wake up by natural light, blinds set with timers can be a great way to ease the transition between sleep and waking.
"There are many light controlling window blinds and shades available that offer varying degree's of natural light through. Look for Honeycomb cellular shades, Roman shades and Bamboo shades with blackout liner options," says Ron Manwaring of Blinds Chalet.
