Are you an early bird or a night owl? Do you naturally wake up early in the morning or later in the day? Do you prefer a dark room, closed shades and black out curtains or a bright room, open shades and translucent sheers?
Chronotypes are dependent on genetics, the environment and age. They dictate the body’s natural tendency to fall asleep and wake up at a certain time of day. They influence hormone levels, metabolic function and body temperature.
Exposure to light can suppress melatonin ( a hormone found naturally in the body) production and delay sleep which is why some people prefer a dark room, closed shades and black out curtains. Try these cordless white fabric blackout blinds and blackout window curtains to block light.
