Blue Light, Brains, & Your Sleep

Today is a deep, gray day in Kansas City, and days like today seem perfect for napping, simply because the sun is not shining.

Our bodies are designed to respond to light, specifically from the sun, so that we are up and going during the day, and pulled into restorative sleep at night.

The sun emits many wavelengths of light, but the one that is most responsible for waking us up is commonly called “blue light.”

And while it’s being blocked by the clouds right now, blue light is being emitted from all of our screens any time they’re on.

In general, this is not ideal.

Blue light from technology is unnaturally stimulating to our brains, and can be especially disruptive to your sleep cycle.

Your body relies heavily on quality sleep to repair damaged tissues, process and store information, clear toxins, and fight off infections.

On top of all that, sleep does even more for our kids. Sleep plays an absolutely critical role in learning, emotional management, physical growth, and brain development in our kids and teens.

So anything that disrupts precious sleep, is worth the time and effort to reduce/eliminate!

In today’s video, you’ll learn exactly how blue light affects the brain, how much is too much, and a few quick tips on reducing blue light in your daily routine.

Tune in to get the info you need to get a great night’s sleep tonight!
