The experts say that exposing yourself to light in the early morning, i.e. between 6:00 and 8:30 a.m. will help you sleep better at night! They talk about opening a window and getting full on facial sun for 20-30 minutes. Then, they suggest that you dim the lights in the evening while you are going about your business at your house. This less false light will inform you body it is soon to be bedtime.
Try and follow the pattern of natural light outside and avoid super bright false light inside the house. Maybe decrease light from the T.V. Just for a week to see if this helps transition into the fall cycle.
