IN THE LIGHT

bedroom   I KEEP READING THAT ONE ONE OF THE REASONS FOR INSOMNIA CAN BE TOO MUCH LIGHT IN THE ROOM AND THE USE OF COMPUTERS OR TVS IN THE BEDROOM AND HOW IT MESSES WITH THE NATURAL LIGHT AND DARK CYCLES.  AND I JUST READ THAT IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS WITHOUT ELECTRONICS, PEOPLE SLEPT ALL NIGHT LONG.  WELL, THAT’S QUITE A LEAP I’D SAY!

SERIOUSLY, I DO NOT ACCEPT THAT INSOMNIA SUDDENLY CAME INTO PLAY AFTER ELECTRICITY  WAS DEVELOPED.  NOBODY WORRIED OR PACED BEFORE THEN?

I GET THE WHOLE LIGHT-AND-DARK-CYCLE ROUTINE BUT I KNOW THERE IS MORE TO IT THAN THAT.  I AM SO GRATEFUL THAT WE HAVE ELECTRICITY SO THAT WHEN I REALLY CANNOT SLEEP, THERE IS SOMETHING TO DO BESIDES LIE THERE AND FEEL STRESSED AND DISTRAUGHT—-LIKE WATCH A TV SHOW ON MY I-PHONE OR LISTEN TO A PODCAST.  BACK IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS THEY JUST GOT TO BE AWAKE IN THE DARK, POSSIBLY WITH WILD ANIMALS LURKING ABOUT.

WHEN I AM NOT HAVING A BOUT WITH INSOMNIA, I CAN SLEEP IN THE LIGHT, IN THE DARK AND IN THE MIDST OF NOISE AND MUSIC, SO WHILE I UNDERSTAND THAT LIGHT MAY INTERFERE WITH OVERALL SLEEP AND HEALTH PATTERNS, AND THAT IDEALLY IT SHOULD BE ALL DARK AND QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT, I PROPOSE THAT IT IS NOT ALWAYS THE IMMEDIATE PROBLEM AND AT TIMES CAN HELP WITH RELAXATION AND BECOME A PART OF THE SOLUTION SO………….
LET THERE BE LIGHT!
