Backpacking and Bipolar II. Taking Manic Depression on tour.
Insomnia is a bitch and further to all you’ve heard about caffeine, exercising daily and not eating too close to bed time there is another way you can interrupt your circadian rhythm. Some of the light emitted by phones, laptops and electronic displays stunts the production of our primary sleep hormone. If you’re like me and do your writing in the dark a lot of the time you could probably benefit from a piece of software called f.lux. f.lux is designed to stop your displays from emitting the offending light.
Give it a try – you can get it here.
While we’re at it – what do you do to avoid insomnia taking root? What do you do when insomnia strikes? I’d like to hear from you.
All the best,
