There’s nothing worse than being exhausted after a long day and knowing you need a full night’s rest only to climb into bed and find yourself wide awake.
But according to one sleep expert, the trick to remedying this all too annoying experience is simple.
Reach for your sunglasses and throw some shade.

"Beginning at eight at night, two hours before [the] time I want to go to bed, I wear sunglasses. Not because my future’s so bright, but because I’m trying to avoid light. I’m trying to tell my clock that this is the end of the day," postdoctoral research fellow Glenn Landry told CBC News.
By adding some shade to your immediate surroundings, you're shutting out the light emitted from TV screens, mobile phones, laptops, computers, hand-held devices and everything else we seem to surround ourselves with these days.
And it's that light, the University of British Columbia research says, that's contributing to our involuntary late nights.
