Sleeping in a room with even dim artificial light, such as the glow of the television or a night light, can cause depression, a study published July 24 suggests. But the good news: you can reverse the effects by simply switching off the lights.The new research adds to a growing body of evidence that finds that light at night can cause changes to the brain and depressive symptoms. Plus the researchers believe that staying up late to watch television or go online could also play a factor in depression.
