Most screens emit a colour of 6500 K. Which is also called blue lighting. And stops the production of melatonin in your body.

Ever wonder why you find it hard to fall asleep after watching TV, your tablet or mobile phone before going to sleep?

Or why don’t you sleep too well? You might fall asleep of exhaustion but your body is not falling asleep properly because of the white light entering your vision right before sleep. 

Your screens are doing this to you.


Blue Light Blocking Glasses

Should you need to work after sunset I recommend you get a pair of blue light blocking glasses. Check the spectrum of wavelength the glasses block out.

For working in the evening and at night I recommend the strongest ones. These will most likely be a tinted orange colour. You’ll look odd to others, but your eyes will thank you.

Should you find yourself tired during the day as you are in front of a screen, you can buy clear blue light blocking glasses. These will block most blue light but not all. Still your eyes will be taking a rest from the screen. 

The best thing is to avoid screens if possible upon sunset. Yep I’m aware, so practical in the world we live in today right? Or at least 2 hours before you sleep time. 


Take control of how your body feels in your home. This is yours to modify.
