Psych Central


It’s been a long week, hasn’t it?

The days are getting longer here in the northern hemisphere — and for many of us, the extra light brings joy.

But the extra light also keeps us wakeful for longer. Soon, even 8 pm will be nearly as bright as mid-day.

That extra light — as welcomed as it might be after such a long and dark winter — can do us a big disservice. When there’s more daylight outside, do you ever feel like you pack more activities into your day? Does it take more effort to slow down for bedtime? Do you tend to go to bed later?

If you’ve answered “yes” to any of the above questions, keep reading! I made a video just for you.

  1. Hi Summer; in the video you said you’d give the info to the web site that assesses our natural sleep time, but I never saw it. If there is a way, can you please provide that. Thank you!

  2. Thank you for this opportunity, however I found this young ladies’ delivery a little hyper that was counterproductive. Speech including internal dialogue is best slowed down prior to retiring – for a highly sensitive person this presentation may be a little jarring.

    Best wishes,
