Sleep problems? These blinds could help
Light entering the bedroom can contribute to delayed sleep, a poor quality of sleep and waking prematurely from sleep. But Blockout Blinds can help!
Light pollution can enter from a variety of sources such as street lights, illuminated signs, passing cars, light polluting neighbours, bright moonlight and early morning daylight (especially in summer when days are longer and nights shorter).
A sleeper may not even be aware that their sleep has been disturbed by light and may simply think that they have insomnia or that they might have spontaneously woken up before finishing their full nights sleep cycle of 7-9 hours.
Sub-optimal and inadequate sleep can lead to a multitude of health and wellness issues, including increased risk of:
- High blood pressure
- Weak immune response
- Heart disease
- Reduced Fertility
- Memory loss
- Reduced mental clarity
- Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease
- Inflammation (which itself is a key component of a large proportion of other illnesses)
- And Ultimately Reduced lifespan
Sources of light that come from within the house can be controlled; where screen light and house lights can be reduced or eliminated at least 4 hours before bed to improve sleep but external sources which are not under your control may still have a negative affect on your sleep.
Logically once you have begun to control the light within your home, the only remaining obstacle to effectively mastering this important factor in your life, is to control the passage of light coming from outside your home… And the cheapest, easiest and overall best way to do that, is to install blinds with a Blockout Lining in your house wherever you expect to be awake in the final hours of your day. Not only will they provide privacy and improve the ambience of your house at night but by contributing to a good nights sleep they could form part of healthy lifestyle that extends and improves your life itself.
