CREATING BRIGHTER LIVES & A MORE SUSTAINABLE WORLD
Updated: Mar 19
Do you find it difficult to sleep when it’s time for bed?
If so, most of America faces the same problem. In fact, according to a Consumer Reports study some 68% of Americans struggle to fall asleep every week. The reasons are varied. But more and more there has been research focused on our ‘internal clock’, or circadian rhythm. The circadian rhythm influences our wake/sleep cycle and is largely affected by the light that our eyes are exposed to, both natural and artificial. The wrong kind of artificial light can throw off our body’s internal clock and make it more difficult to fall asleep at the proper time.
Circadian rhythm lighting is becoming one of the most popular new smart home solutions today.
But what is it?
Circadian Lighting Our bodies work on the sun’s cycle of light color. During the day sunlight is bright and slightly blue. But as the early evening arrives, the sunlight softens and becomes warmer in color. This is what our body expects. But with artificial light, that may not be what our eyes see. You may have heard of the blue light circadian rhythm issue, where blue light from electronics and lightbulbs at night can throw off our body’s sleep cycle.
