What is Darkened room?

Category: Lifestyle Modifications


The quality of your sleep has a lot to do with light, both outdoor and indoor lighting, which serves as a synchronizer to your body. High light exposure can affect your melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep. Minimizing light exposure at night may improve your quality of sleep.
