It is well-established that sleep plays a central role in human health.

Given its impact on nearly all systems of the body, evidence points to various ways that sleep may affect cancer.

In addition to overt circadian disruption, light exposure at night has been associated with greater incidence of many types of cancers, including breast, colorectal, prostate, and lung cancers.

Light diminishes the production of melatonin by the pineal gland, making it harder for you to have a proper sleep.

I suggest turning off your lights before going to bed and having a set bedtime routine that will help your body know it is time to sleep.

😴 Decide on a Set Bedtime.
😴 Leave the Electronics Alone.
😴 Drink some non-caffeinated tea
😴 Stretch, Breathe, and Relax.

Do you have a bedtime routine?
