Many people reach for their phones, laptops, or tablets as soon as they get into bed. These devices emit blue light, which can affect the sleep cycle. Blue light stimulates parts of the brain that make us feel alert, resulting in an elevated body temperature and heart rate. Blue light also suppresses the release of the hormone Melatonin, which is responsible for making us sleep.
It’s essential to give your eyes a break from screens in order to minimize digital eye strain.
Try to make your bedroom technology-free, turn off the device as soon as you get into bed so you can sleep peacefully and wake up rested.
