Hi eil, personally, I prefer to sleep, at night without lights. Even those digital clocks. I do not sleep with those beside my bed either. Sometimes I will leave a night light on in the kitchen though, in case I need to get up in the middle of the night or if my dog wants a drink when it is dark.

Some would really do that if they're used to wake up late at night to do those things. I might as well do that if I were to have my midnight snack but I prefer not to, lights and food could just interrupt my rest. Thanks again for commenting Evrwonder.

You're welcome eil. You are right that food in the middle of the night can be a super bad habit to get into, not only interrupting one's sleep. Sometimes we may need to get up to go to the washroom however. Wouldn't want to stub a toe. That really smarts, especially when we are half asleep, lol. Thanks for your comment. Sweet Dreams!

lights off of course. I am not a small kid who is afraid of the dark :) and the light just irritates my eyes when I lave it on and try to fall asleep!

Yes your right, But some would still choose lights on if they're used to it and some were really afraid of the dark even the older ones were scared to, Seriously.

Sleeping with lights off is my habit cause it invites me more to sleep easy. If lights is on then it is like daytime having a hard time for me to sleep. And aside from that, electrical impulse or positive ion coming from electric lights are being avoided which is harmful to the body.I stay relax and cool if light is off

Personally speaking, I prefer to sleep without lights for such environment is more suitable for sleeping. I guess most people have the same answer as me. That is why we sleep at night instead of in the daytime. Of course I could also sleep with the lights on for I could easily fall asleep.

Many was really afraid of the dark. My sister is like you. Sometimes we sleep together in her bed in order for her not to be too scared then I would switch the lights off. You can put glow in the dark stuff in your room. It can somehow drift you from being scared, sound like childish but for me, its effective

I sleep without lights on because light keeps me mentally active. By having total darkness , it helps me drift off into sleep easier.

You might pay a lot in your electric bills then, but I guess It would just be fine as long as you had a good night sleep.

I prefer lights off but I always want the room lit dimly. I hate it when its very dark cause it makes me more paranoid. I always think there's something looking at me. I am scared of the dark that's why even if I prefer lights off, I still want to see a bit of a light.

I was sometimes paranoid if I know that im the only person at home that light were shut. if you have windows at home you can look out for light with that specially if it is full moon. Its relaxing, just by seeing the stars, the sky, and the moon. I have two windows in my room so it is kinda dim.

I like sleeping with the lights off coz like you bright lights also distracts my eyes. not that i'm photophobic or something :D I just prefer the lights turned off. for me, it is perfect for relaxing and you won't be able to see stuff with color that can disturb your eyes from falling asleep. If lights should be turned on for some reason, then i'd appreciate if someone would make the lights dimmer.

Hi there Eil Noz! I know lots of people who would prefer to have the lights off or on when they sleep but I am one of the few who doesn't really care at all. I can sleep with the lights on or off. It's great because I don't have to adjust when I am sleeping with other people. My husband prefer to have the lights off but my son prefers to have the light on. I'm okay with both.

I prefer off. But it really doesn't bother me if the lights are on. I wanted the lights off to conserve electricity.

Hi ei_noz, I can enjoy a proper rest sweetly if I'm sleeping in the dark. Therefore I like to have all lights in my bedroom off for sure. When having vocations with frineds. Sometimes my roomate feels comfortable to sleep with light on. I usually won't insist her to follow my sleeping habit. I will then cover my eyes with pillow. I still could fall asleep without any difficult Anyway I know it's much healthier to sleep in the dark as well as a tranquil environment. For we could enjoy the proper sleep fully without any disturbance of light and noisse Happy posting

I prefer sleeping with the lights off but it is also ok if it is on but I have to make sure that it doesn't hit my eye. I would probably get my pillow and cover my eyes LOL
