The right type of light at the wrong time of day can make it difficult to fall asleep. Blue wavelengths, like those emitted from our phones, tablets, and computers, can boost attention and elevate mood during the daytime, but they are known for suppressing melatonin release which will keep you awake by shifting your body’s natural circadian rhythm. A healthy night’s sleep impacts everything about our bodies, from how well we recover after injury or infection to even having an effect on our mental state throughout the day! Eliminating screen time 2 hours before your usual bedtime can lead to a better night’s rest. So unplug, get some sleep and see the benefits for yourself!
