👉🏽BLUE LIGHT FROM TECHNOLOGY. ⁣⁣
In this post I will explore why it is essential to wear BLUE BLOCKING GLASSES 2-3 hours before bed every night. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
⛔️BLUE LIGHT WORSENS YOUR SLEEP:⁣⁣
Blue light from technology can interrupt melatonin signalling in the brain, and thus can compromise both REM sleep and deep sleep (Tähkämö et al., 2019). ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
🛑BLUE LIGHT CONTRIBUTES TO OBESITY:⁣⁣
Both blue and green light are known to contribute to insulin resistance. The title of the study is “Morning and Evening Blue-Enriched Light Exposure Alters Metabolic Function in Normal Weight Adults” - (Cheung et al., 2016). Basically, if you eat whilst looking at artificial lights, scrolling through your smart phone or whilst watching TV you are going to be less efficient at disposing carbohydrates, which will lead to weight gain and eventually diabetes.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
✅SOLUTION?⁣⁣
1. Wear blue blocking glasses in the evening that have been thoroughly tested to filter out blue/green wavelengths of light. (DM me for best vendor).⁣⁣
2. Use @iristech.co on your computer, or Flux. (Iris is better IMO). ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
💥TAKEAWAY:⁣⁣⁣
Exposure to artificial light is one of the largest often-overlooked health risks of living in the 21st century.⁣⁣
Blocking blue light serves an important biological purpose, helping to regulate your internal clock to control sleep patterns and other body functions; avoiding blue light at night is crucial to protecting your health.⁣⁣
