Creating the Perfect Light for Sleep

For a sounder slumber and quicker going to sleep time replace your bed side lightbulbs with one labeled warm white or soft white.  Research shows reading in the soft light prompts the brain to release melatonin hormones that promote sleep.  When I'm on the road, I put my hot pink hoodie sweatshirt over the bedside table lamp to give the light in the evening a soft pink glow one that promotes the correct brain waves for sleep.
