keep it dark

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Better Sleep -

Mak­ing the bed­room as dark as pos­si­ble at night is im­por­tant be­cause dark­ness trig­gers the pro­duc­tion of mela­tonin – the hor­mone that signals to your body to wind down. Cur­tains or blinds work, but make sure they’re easy to open. Win­dow cov­er­ings also help to re­duce the cold and heat seep­ing through the glass. In the morn­ing, you want to shut down mela­tonin pro­duc­tion – a dose of day­light helps do that.
