Let Your Light Shine…Until Bedtime Healthy Habits

Let Your Light Shine…Until Bedtime

It’s all too easy (and quite tempting) to come home from a long day at work, climb into bed and turn on the TV for some R&R before it’s “light’s out.” But how many of us fall asleep with TV still on, phone in our hand, maybe even forgetting to turn off the lights altogether?

We’ve become a 24-hour culture, plugged into devices that illuminate our bedrooms to no end. However, it’s no secret that a good night’s sleep is the cornerstone of a healthy lifestyle.

So maybe it’s time to heed Mom’s advice…

Wondering how you can block out light and unplug without sleeping in a cave? Check out these small changes that can make a big difference while you’re grabbing your zzz’s:
