    If you sleep better with some light, and you've tried it, don't let a bunch of people on the internet tell you otherwise. Do what puts you to sleep.

    I tend to sleep best in the dark, but I think most of it is how tired I am. Days in the past when I have only gotten 3 or 4 hours of sleep I could easily take a nap in the bright of day, but if I have decent sleep (7+hrs), a nap is nearly impossible. I think the light is more so the artificial light. Moonlight, campfires... I want to try sleeping with a window open to let in the light (stars/moon) in because the street lamp is at the front of the house, not the back where my window is, but I move into an apartment in AUG so I doubt it would be a long term thing. Artificial light, for me, is a killer.

    sleeping in the light

    Ive just starting a job where I work 3pm - 3am and its totally messing with my body clock! I hate having to sleep during the day. Especially when its a great day outside, I need to get some black drapes I think. I have gotten used to sleeping where its really dark and quiet, so I guess you just used to sleeping in the light. It takes a while to adjust to change. (sometimes you just never adjust) just do whatever you need to do to get a good nights rest I reckon. I wish I could have more right now, I feel like such a waste of space being so tired. Any advice on how to adjust to night working? I still wanna have energy when I get up to do something!!

    I slep very soundly during the day if I have the opportunity. I find I wake up feeling better and more rested. It doesn't happen often, I don't get the chance with life being busy, but I do like a good daytime sleep at least once a month.

    so what hours do you actually have to sleep? Yeh I have known people who work crazy hours and it really is very difficult to force your body to get used to that type of sleeping schedule. what hours would you be able to do something during the day?? How doe sit affect your stress/ eating/hunger schedules? I would never be able to work nights or odd hours I don't think.

    I have no problem with darkness, it's dead silence that prevents me from sleeping. My mind starts doing wind sprints, and all the great teeth grinding and various other wonderful noises that the wife makes while sleeping triggers my misophonia. For that reason I always need the tv on to fall asleep just for background noise.
