The light will affect positively your body and it will be signaled that he needs to wake up.
Create The Atmosphere

If you are constantly annoyed and interrupted while trying to fall asleep, you will probably spend the entire night tossing and turning. You have to be able to relax, this is the only way in which you will fall asleep.
Stick To A Routine
If you’ve really want to improve your sleeping habits you should make a routine for yourself and stick to it. Once you manage to go to bed every day at the same time, and get up at the same time you will see how much more energized you will feel throughout the day. Furthermore, you should also try to make yourself to get up early. This is a common tip, but truly it will make you feel much more organized, and you will feel much more satisfied during the day. If you are not normally a morning person, you should at least try to be one.
Handle Your Dreams
We all dream during the night whether we remember it or not. We sometimes remember our dreams when we wake up but that does not always the case. If you have ever had a lucid dream then you will now that it is a dream where you are able to control everything. Some people say you should strive to have as much lucid dreams as possible.
