A Dark Room’s Amazing Powers

Sleep longer when your room is extra dark with blackout curtains Photo by Alexander Possingham on Unsplash Sleeping in a dark room has many benefits to our body that most people tend to pass by, and because the system that regulates our cycles of sleep and wakefulness is ruled by light and darkness (or lack of light if we get technical) properly balancing both results in a much healthier and consistent sleep pattern. Many external factors can disrupt said balance such as poor quality blinds, allowing every street light to enter your room, tedious outdoor noises like cars and trains, and even the temperature you’re sleeping in can interfere with your sleep cycle. The Science Behind Sleeping In A Dark Room When the brain senses the absence of light, it sends a signal to the body indicating that it is time to sleep, and when a person constantly sleeps in a bright room, the body fails to rest. This leads to next-day tiredness, stress, overall discomfort, and mood swings. Exposing ourselves to light early in the daytime promotes feelings of alertness, wakefulness, and energy in our mind and body. If your body is repeatedly being stimulated by this it could seriously harm the balance of your sleep cycle. Therefore it is essential to sleep in a pitch-black room to ensure a healthy rest time and avoid possible issues. By investing in quality room darkening shades such as Sleep EZ Shade’s is one of the best things you can do to take care of yourself. When someone is repeatedly sleeping in a room when there’s a light source present at the wrong time, it can adversely affect the body’s circadian rhythm (the biological mechanism that regulates our sleep-wake cycles), resulting in the disruption of both the quality and quantity of sleep. Some of the most serious potential problems associated with sleep deprivation are diabetes, heart failure, blood pressure, obesity, and depression, among others. Purchasing top-class blackout window covers for your bedroom will improve your sleep quality and prevent your health from suffering any negative changes. Why Is It Important? Melatonin, a hormone produced by our brain, is in charge of sending our body a signal to fall asleep, after which the physiological work for the sleep cycle begins, including relaxing our muscles, dropping our body temperature, and more. Our levels of melatonin automatically increase after darkness arrives, and when the sun starts to rise, they start to remain low throughout the day. Exposure to light at night can interfere with the natural increment of melatonin levels, slowing our body’s natural progression to sleep. As well as maintaining a balanced mental and emotional well-being, sleeping in a completely dark room helps lower the risk of depression and other serious health issues. If your room is not dark enough or you’re constantly suffering from street lights passing through your normal curtains, Sleep EZ Shade’s blackout sunshade window covers will resolve the problem. Further, darkness is not only vital for having a quality sleep time but it also lowers the possibilities of developing a metabolic disorder. People often referred to as “night owls” were reported to be more vulnerable to having muscle loss, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome, as opposed to those who had an established sleep and wake-up routine according to their body’s natural cycles. A typical adult requires at least 6 hours of sleep daily and is recommended to get to at least 8 hours. But this shouldn't be mistaken as prioritizing quantity over quality, meaning that it is fundamental to sleep better, not longer. Tint light-blocking glass coverings ensure the best sleep time, focusing on letting your body rest without compromising the number of hours a person needs to achieve that. Not only adults but children and babies can benefit from these curtains too because they also need quality rest time to properly function throughout the day. Benefits Of Sleeping In A Pitch Black Room Sleeping in a completely dark room has many important benefits for our bodies. To begin, the regulation of melatonin production (one of the most important hormones of our body) is seriously linked to light and our exposure to it. Balanced levels of this hormone are required for a person to experience quality sleep time and it is produced during the night. Several studies have shown that constant exposure to light can affect our body's natural production of melatonin, disrupting our sleep cycle. What’s more, other hormones are affected by constant exposure to light at night such as those that direct a woman’s menstrual cycle. Complete darkness at night can also reduce insomnia and improve mental focus and alertness during the daytime. A healthy sleep cycle can upgrade your emotional and physical well-being and decrease the possibilities of developing certain mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression, along with stress. Waking up in the middle of your sleep cycle due to light coming through your window results in fatigue and poor concentration the next day. Further, sleeping in the dark is known to have anti-aging benefits, according to different studies. Cellular regeneration was proven to be more active when the body is in a complete resting state in the absn¿ence of light. This leads to anti-inflammatory and hormonal balancing effects allowing the body to heal faster and slow down the aging process.
