LIGHT IN YOUR BEDROOM AT NIGHT CAN MAKE YOU FAT!
Why?
The global epidemic of obesity and metabolic disorders continues to increase dramatically.

This increase coincides with an ever increasing exposure to light at night in countries and cities worldwide, as well as increases in shift work.
Exposure to even LOW levels of light at night disrupts the timing of signals our body sends regarding food intake and other metabolic processes. This disruption can lead to excess weight gain.

6 WAYS TO ENHANCE YOUR CIRCIDIAN RHYTHM and NATURAL SLEEP CYCLES TO LOSE WEIGHT
1. Insure your sleeping environment is completely DARK.
(If you have light coming in from outside buy black-out drapes or a good eye mask.)

2. Your sleeping environment should also be COOL.
(Cooler temperatures help you fall asleep and stay asleep.)
3. Go to Bed at a reasonable hour that is fairly consistent on a nightly basis.
(Such as 10 pm or 11 pm)

4. Establish a nightly ritual before you go to bed, such as a soothing bath or reading for 30 minutes before going to bed. Such a routine will cue your body it is time for sleep.
5. If you get up to go to the bathroom during the night, try to go in the dark OR keep a small LED keychain light by the bed so as to disrupt your circidian rhythm as little as possible.
