For those dark middle of the night bathroom runs, one of the best things you can do is make sure you have a low level light to illuminate the floor and the way there. Turning on a full overhead light when coming from a state of darkness will promote the secretion of melatonin in the brain and suppress natural sleepiness, making it hard to fall asleep again. Nightlights are the perfect solution for this. For those who dislike even the small amount of light produced by a nightlight that’s always on, it may be a good idea to get one that’s triggered by a motion sensor.
