Sleep

I found the attached article interesting, the idea that the sleep cycle was different before electric lights (and television).

I notice when we travel, particularly to Newfoundland where we don't have TV, we sleep even better then we normally do.

Sleeping In Two Segments - Business Insider

Generally when we travel we go to bed earlier than we do at home and, though we sleep in our 40 bed, we always wake well rested.

This winter we'll experiment with going to bed at sunset.

According to studies I have read , people who work second or third shift .or work rotating shifts have more health related issues and a higher rate of divorce. Maybe there is some wisdom in being up during daylight hours and going to sleep when the sun goes down. (Except in Alaska) Watching TV late at night especially the news, maybe too much of a stimulant or irritant to allow a night of restful sleep ?

It will be interesting to hear your results of your two sleeps, not the waking hour between them. We do have posting guidelines for this site.

Roy,

My suspicion is that I will probably wake up and Ginny will sleep thru. Ginny and our son's are solid sleepers.

Steve, I believe that the news before sleep can be disruptive to solid sleep. Tuesday I has a colonoscopy and went under talking about Newfoundland and walk up and continued the conversation. Going good under with good thoughts and waking to them may be a sign I had good thoughts while under.

Good to see this here. I've watched this closely for a few years. Other studies have been done that show our sensitivity to particular wavelengths of light. Blue light is the worst for circadian disruption. This fact in particular is why I've avoided putting LED lights in our camper, and I often will wear special glasses after sundown when watching TV to try and cheat a bit by blocking the blue light from the screen.

Doing that, and making my sleeping space as dark as possible has REALLY helped my sleep.
