Scrolling Instagram, Tiktok, or watching TV just before bed are big culprits when it comes to sleep problems. (Not to mention that it impacts how much sex you are having before bed as well…)
📺 Our cell phones, laptops, and TVs all emit blue light. Blue light can affect your body’s natural circadian rhythm if exposed within 2 hours of going to sleep.
Blue light suppresses the production of melatonin, our naturally occurring sleep hormone, which tells your body it’s tired and needs to sleep. The sun emits blue light, which is why it's easy to wake up when the sun is shining in the window.
The easiest ways to prevent blue light from wreaking havoc on your sleep? Ditch the screens 2-3 hours before going to bed. Swap your screen habit for a good old-fashioned book. Try using blue blocker glasses when using screens or turn on your blue light blocker on your phone while scrolling.
Do you have trouble falling asleep at night?
