Shedding Light On Sleep’s Biggest Secret

The role of light in getting a solid night’s sleep goes far beyond just turning off your lights and going to bed.

Science is now exploring the relationship between light, when we’re exposed to it (or not), and sleep quality.

Light plays a very important role in what’s called our circadian rhythm.

Our body’s own natural 24-hour clock informs us about when to feel awake and when to feel tired.

Light also plays a vital role in the production of cortisol, melatonin, and adenosine, all of which influence this sleep-wake cycle.

Think about how we evolved as humans.

We didn’t try to get our best quality sleep after watching hours of the newest Netflix series (as fun as binging Ozarks maybe), and wake up to immediately check our phones and start scrolling on TikTok.

Inherently, we woke up and went to sleep with this is why getting adequate sunlight at key times of the day may be the missing link to your sleep problems.

Some-Thing Is Better Than No-Thing

When it comes to setting and striving towards any goal, whether it be health, financial, relationship or career, it’s important to avoid getting stuck in the “all or nothing” mind trap.

Repeat after me…

Some-thing is better than no-thing.

Explore the example of a 10-pound weight loss.

After watching endless Instagram influencers and YouTube stars, you’re convinced the best path to success is as follows:

  • 5 am wake-up call
  • Daily workouts (plus a long run on Saturday and yoga on Sunday)
  • 2 hours of weekly meal prep
  • Weighing and measuring every meal
  • 4 liters of water
  • Meditation and gratitude journaling before bed

In rare cases, this routine may be kept up…for a while anyway.

But ultimately this degree of behaviour is generally short-lived and the ensuing failure (for the #475th time) could finally be enough to lead to submission for good.

In cases where it’s not a total disaster, at a minimum it adds to skepticism and eventual cynicism about the likelihood of finally improving one’s life.

On the flip side, we may believe that given our past lack of success, it’s not even worth starting.

In the end, we find ourselves fully embracing the master plan or not wanting to start because we see our efforts as eventually fruitless.

There is a time and place for these intense goal-setting sprints.  Hyper-focused attention and dedication can help propel you through a “sticking point”.

Use them in small doses with a specific goal, outcome, and plan.

However, the best outline for consistent improvement begins with transitioning your all or none mentality to a framework that will support long-term success.

4 Pro Tips For Adding Life To Your Years

What is “normal” aging?

Stiff, achy joints, poor sleep, lack of energy, and a host of other conditions that we’ve been told to “just live with”.

Are they inevitable?

Emerging research states that the human body could live upwards of 150 years!

There’s so much more that’s possible for the human body than we’ve ever been told.

Take osteoarthritis for example.

The average life span is about 82 years.

Newer research shows that healthspan, the number of disease-free years someone can expect to live free from chronic disease and debilitating illnesses, is 66 years old in the United States.

That’s almost a 16-year gap!

“If you don’t take care of your body, where else will you live?”

With the years counting down, now is the time to invest in your health and take advantage of the full breadth of enjoyment and happiness that your life has available to you.
