Some studies have suggested a link between exposure to any bright lights at night with increased risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity, with blue light being the worst offender.
Proposed ways to counteract the effect of blue light on our sleep cycle and overall health include:
- avoiding bright lights and screens 2-3 hours before bedtime
- using blue light blocking lenses at night when bright lights and screens can't be avoided (ex. for night shift workers)
- getting more bright light during the daytime (this is my personal favorite way to combat jet lag!)
What's this mean?? Having my children and myself avoid personal screens 2 hours before bedtime. But let's face it... for myself, it's not all that practical. I usually have to get on at night after the kids go to bed to catch up on work and to send some quick emails. Not to mention to watch TV and scroll through social media. You know how it is... This is where blue light lenses come into play!
