Social media is a product of the 21st century and everybody around us is glued to a screen of some description. Time spent looking at Facebook or Instagram, Emails and texts come with its own adverse effects. Our circadian rhythms are highly affected by blue light and natural daylight!
Blue light is not just entering your eye from natural sources like the sun. Our eyes are also absorbing blue light from digital sources on a daily basis. Over time, our eyes are exposed to various sources that produce blue-violet light in LED lighting, tablets, Tv’s, computer screens and smart phones. There’s no doubt our exposure to blue light is on the increase. When blue light reduces we produce melatonin and we get sleepy.

Set technology using limit and no devices after 6 pm or install blue light filters on your devices at least.
