If you’re waking up feeling exhausted or having problems falling asleep at night, blackout curtains might be just what the doctor ordered to feel well-rested in the morning. Recent research on circadian rhythms, also known as the sleep-wake cycle and the effect of light on your sleep are showing us how to get a better night’s sleep. Blackout curtains can be an effective part of getting more sleep, which in turn can improve your overall health and quality of life.
In the past, before the invention of alarm clocks, people woke up when the sun came up and went to bed not long after sunset. These are the natural rhythms of sleep for most of human history. What this means is that the human brain and the human eye are hard wired to associate light with “time to wake up.”
Blackout curtains do exactly what the name says – they black out the light. Keeping the light out of your room helps you to fall asleep and stay asleep. Perhaps best of all, blackout curtains can be inexpensive, and within the price range for all budgets. If you’re looking for a way to sleep longer and get a better quality of sleep, blackout curtains aren’t going to be a miracle cure. Limiting caffeine use, avoiding electronic devices after a certain hour of the day, and going to sleep and waking up at regular times every day should also be factored in. If you’re already doing the rest of these, blackout curtains might be just the missing piece you’ve been looking for!
