BRIGHT BED­ROOM, DARK MOOD

Runner's World (UK) - - Rw / Promotion -

Run­ners know all about the im­por­tance of a good night’s sleep when it comes to race-day per­for­mance. But there’s an­other rea­son to cre­ate the right en­vi­ron­ment for some qual­ity shut-eye: too much light at night may dou­ble your risk of de­pres­sion, ac­cord­ing to a new study. 1 Bed­room light lev­els that are roughly equiv­a­lent to mid-twi­light or brighter are deemed too much for a qual­ity night’s sleep. Study co-au­thor Kenji Obayashi says the light may cause sleep dis­tur­bances and throw off the body’s in­ter­nal clock.
