Rural people do not seem to be as bothered by insomnia. The secret lies in the sun. The right light at the right time sets our internal clock, and manages our body functions, including wakefulness and sleep. You can tell the time of day by the color of light. So can birds and animals. The farmer woke when the cock crowed. The pink early morning light shone in his eyes. As he worked in the heat, he saw the blue daylight and it shone on his skin, Later came red sunset, and firelight, and soon he went to sleep after telling stories with friends. In contrast we work inside all day, and then stay up at night under electric light. In the evening we see the blue light from our computers and cell phones, which wakes us up just when we should be getting sleeply. When we go to bed there is no darkness, but light pollution and microwave radiation, from our router or a local cell phone tower.
During sleep your body heals, builds memory and flushes toxins from the brain. Once, people healed from serious illness just by sleeping. You must sleep. Not sleeping brings illnesses, like high blood pressure, obesity, cancer and even bipolar mania. Modern life disrupts our internal clock with irregular sleeping hours, sleeping too little, or getting the wrong light.
