Light therapy is proven to help shift workers adapt to a rotating day-night roster by re-timing the sleep-wake cycle. But sleep hygiene is just as important as using Re-Timer to re-time your sleep.
Here is, a list of sleeping tips to help you get the most out of your Re-Timer whether you’re a shift worker, a business traveller looking to avoid jet lag or simply suffer inadequate sleep.
• Set a regular bedtime. Go to bed at the same time every night. Try not to break this routine on weekends when it may be tempting to stay up late. If you want to change your bedtime, help your body adjust by making the change in small daily increments.
• Wake up at the same time every day. If you need an alarm clock to wake up on time, you may need to set an earlier bedtime. As with your bedtime, try to maintain your regular wake-time even on weekends.
• Nap to make up for lost sleep. If you need to make up for a few lost hours, opt for a daytime nap rather than sleeping late. This strategy allows you to pay off your sleep debt without disturbing your natural sleep-wake rhythm, which often backfires in insomnia and throws you off for days.
