Since living in Fort St John I have often been asked, how is it I sleep at night when it is always light out. Having grown up in Yellowknife, I had never really thought out it. I slept at night and got up in the morning.
I chalked it up to being like anything else, it is a routine. I tell myself it is time to sleep, so I sleep. I’m assuming it is much the same for those who take naps in the middle of the afternoon or folks that work nightshifts (done this too). Of course I to have tried my hand in different methods of blocking out the light, tinfoil or any other thick material over windows or wearing a mask. Then again, I do the same thing in Fort St John.
Whether it is because I’m out of the normal routine or in Yellowknife or even because I’m an hour different than I normally am, I find I have a slight bit more energy. I woke at 7am and here I am still at 12:30. I do love Yellowknife summers, they compare to nothing.
