BLUE LIGHT: TIPS FOR THE SCREEN LIFE

Now that our screens hold most of our attention, let's chat about how this is affecting our eyes… and more importantly what we can do to help them. ⁠⠀

⁠⠀

A few years back, 60% of Americans surveyed experienced symptoms of “digital eye strain” due to extended time in front of a screen. What was born out of this study? An industry formed around protecting us from blue light. ⁠⠀


Blue light can have a huge impact on our sleep, specifically by suppressing our natural melatonin production. When we take in blue light, our mind is triggered to stay alert and upbeat. In a perfect world, we'd all be turning our screens off about 3-4 hours before we hit the hay. Sometimes, that's just not going to happen (YouTube is a very dark hole..) SO - bring on the blue light glasses. I've linked a list of affordable / super stylish /super fast glasses for you to take a look at... ENJOY 😎⁠⠀

⁠⠀

TIPS FOR SCREEN LIFE: ⁠⠀


  1. Position your screen so you’re gazing slightly downward.⁠⠀

  2. Turn on the matte screen filter to reduce glare.⁠⠀

  3. Eye drops - for when the dryness gets REAL.⠀

  4. Every 20 minutes or so, focus on something that is further than 10 feet away to reengage your eyes on a different task.
