Artificial light from electronics can throw off our body’s circadian rhythm. (Internal Biological clock). Exposure to light suppresses the secretion of melatonin, a hormone that influences circadian rhythms.
If you’re not sleeping well, that’s a serious health risk! “Disruptions to our circadian rhythm can affect weight loss, libido, mood, and sleep patterns.” (New York Times). 🙊If too much artificial light (iPad, phone, laptop) is making it tough to wind down and go to sleep, blue light blocking glasses could be a good (and affordable) investment.
“Blue wavelengths—which are beneficial during daylight hours because they boost attention, reaction times, and mood—seem to be the most disruptive at night.” 😲
It’s often suggested that night shift workers wear blue light blocking glasses. Going old school and reading 📖 regular books at night is helpful too.
My sleep hasn’t been impacted, but I wear my @cyxusofficial glasses to prevent eye strain. I’ll also wear them at night around the house after the sun goes down as well because of our light bulbs. “LED bulbs used in lamps and ceiling fixtures also emanate bluer light, even if it appears white.”🤦🏾♀️
Scary Fact: “Chronic sleep deprivation can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and certain cancers.” New York Times. If that’s not a wake-up call I don’t know what is.
