Lighting For Circadian Rhythm
Does Lighting for Circadian Rhythm Work?
Most people rely on lighting for circadian rhythm regulation. Because of this, those with insomnia are often advised to look at bright lights at their desired waking time and dim their lights starting a couple of hours before their desired bedtime. It can be an incredibly effective technique, and lighting from All About Lighting is happy to incorporate the right luminaires into your home.
One of the keys to getting this to work is to add other methods for encouraging the desired sleep schedule. This includes turning off all electronic entertainment an hour or two before bedtime, so the brain is lulled into a less-active state. Temperature control is also good, though the usual recommendation to turn down the heat is not universally effective. Instead, it's best to use the temperature that makes you feel the drowsiest.
If you find that lighting for circadian rhythm regulation works for you, then it's a good idea to take steps to make it easier for you to use it. The best thing you can do in this regard is to incorporate this lighting scheme into your home's overall design. This offers you a lot more flexibility and freedom while continuing to engage in the circadian rhythm patterns.
