We live in a world so dependent on technology that we often forget to take a step back to think about the damage it's causing.
You’ve most likely heard of blue light by now. If you haven’t, let me tell you a little about it:
Blue light is emitted through our devices including computers, tvs, cellphone, tablets and all kinds of fun electronic equipment - even the sunshine!
You’ve heard of circadian rhythm, right? It’s your body's natural wake and sleep cycle (your body is your own alarm clock). When it comes to sleep, blue light can disrupt sleep patterns due to interference with melatonin production. Blue light suppresses melatonin twice as long as green light and can shift our circadian rhythms significantly.
Point being, we need to limit the amount of blue light we are exposed to. The best way to do this is to not use blue light emitting products, but that’s hardly an option in 2021. We are incredibly dependent on electronics.
