According to a National Sleep Foundation, 70% of Americans say that they experience a sleep problem almost every night including waking in the night, waking up too early, or feeling un-refreshed when they get up in the morning. Research shows that sleeping in a dark room can help manage your sleep cycles, your mood and your energy, and help you wake up feeling refreshed and alert. Sleeping in a dark room helps to block sleep-disrupting light and adjust your biological clock to help you sleep and wake up when it's right for you.
