MyLite™ Jr is ultra-light and weighs only 20g. The part of your brain that controls your biological clock is the Suprachiasmatic Nucleus (SCN), a group of cells in the hypothalamus. These cells respond to light and dark signals. The optic nerves in our eyes senses light and transmits a signal to the SCN telling the brain that it’s time to wake up.35% of men and 44% of women 20 to 40 years old wake once a night to use the bathroom. 93% of men and 77% of women over 70 years old wake multiple times each night to use the bathroom.
Light inhibits the secretion of melatonin, a hormone that naturally promotes sleep
Even if you doze off, light can be detected through your eyelids—and your brain won’t produce melatonin if it’s confused between night and day. You want as much darkness in your bedroom as you can handle without tripping over things. 73% of Americans rated a dark room as important to getting a good night’s sleep in the National Sleep Foundation’s 2012 Bedroom Poll. One-third of adults over 65 will experience a fall each year at night as a result of darkness. Night time light exposure can decrease sleep quality, but it can also shorten the duration of sleep, leading to further problems.
