I spent three years in Alaska and had the opportunity to live with the “midnight sun” during that time. It’s really amazing at first but if you are trying to hold down a regular job (Husband and I were co-managers of a boutique hotel) it can be rough getting sleep if you don’t have true “black-out” shades. I highly recommend darkening your home around 7 or 8 pm to help your body wind down and get ready for sleep.
The almost 24 hours of darkness that happens in the winter time didn’t bother me nearly as much as trying to sleep with the sun baking down on us. Guess I have the opposite problem of seasonal disorder. 🙂
If you’re one of those people who dreams of summer sunshine all year long, the midnight sun is nature’s gift you won’t want to miss.
The natural phenomenon brings extended hours of sunshine to certain destinations across the globe this time of year. In some locations at or above the Arctic Circle, the sun will even stay in the sky for 24 hours.
