The S Word

Have you noticed something strange? Before the pandemic, everyone used to say that only if they could get more sleep, they’d feel better.

Yet after a year of being at home… our sleep quality is the same, if not worse. In fact, a recent study found that 70% of adults are still sleep deprived. 

You know why? It’s because of the S word. Screen time. In the pandemic, our screen time has increased significantly with more Netflix, more Instagram, more political debates on YouTube...

Let’s admit it - You usually go to sleep right after scrolling the phone or after Netflix… Studies have shown that once you are exposed to blue-light 2/3 hours before bed it takes you 1-2 hours longer to get into REM sleep.

So while you think you're sleeping 8 hours… Your body is actually sleeping 6 hours. At most. Ouch.

Now, we both know that asking you to not use mobiles 2-3 hours before sleeping is unrealistic. Additionally, according to the Prevent Blindness Org, almost all visible blue light passes through the cornea and lens and to reach the retina. This light may affect vision and could prematurely age the eyes. Early research shows that too much exposure to blue light could lead to digital eye strain and retina damage.

So what’s the solution? Blue light glasses.

Blue light glasses help you fight back the effects of spending hours in front of digital devices...
