If shuteye eludes you like Swiper the Fox eludes Dora the Explorer, then listen up.
HelloGiggles reports that a recent study has shown there's a slightly strange morning habit that might make all the difference in signaling your body to hit the hay when night time rolls around.
David K. Randall, author of Dreamland: Adventures in the Strange Science of Sleep, says that getting exposure to sunlight around mid-morning might just be the key to unlocking those sweet, sweet dreams you've been missing.
"Getting more sun exposure in the mid-morning can help readjust the brain's internal clock and make it easier to fall asleep later that night," Randall told NYMag.com.
Randall said it's a trick athletes use frequently when they are traveling to avoid jet lag. Soaking up the sun in mid-morning helps reset your body's circadian rhythm which may help you fall asleep faster when you're desperately wanting that shuteye.
