Protecting our health and good vibes is a top priority. Achieving optimal health consists of many things in addition to eating a proper diet, getting enough sleep and exercise. There are simple and effective ways to protect and amplify our health. We are exposed to thousands of toxins every day, not just in our food but environmental toxins, toxins in our skin care and cleaning supplies, and toxins from our TV Screens, computers, iPads and cell phones! Is nothing pure anymore?! It's becoming increasingly difficult to know what is or isn't healthy and how we can protect ourselves.
Something that I've been introduced to over the last year are yellow lens glasses and how they greatly benefit us. We don't always realize the harms and toxins that come with technology, our TV, computer, tablet or cell phone screens can disrupt our health and impact our body's internal clock, which leads to interruption of proper hormone production and secretion, issues with sleeping and macular degeneration, just to name a few. Our screens emit light waves that our eyes and brain process. Blue light waves are especially difficult for us to process because it is a shorter wavelength, it scatters easier than other colors and it makes it very difficult for us to focus, therefore resulting in harmful eye strain, and often times we don't even realize how strained our eyes really are. Blue light is also very harmful to our body's circadian rhythm, which is our internal, a 24 hour cycle in the physiological processes of all living beings, plants, animals, insects, all living beings. This internal clock regulates how our body feels, when we rise and when we get tired, the blue light manipulates this natural internal process and we struggle to maintain healthy energy.
Recent studies show that blue light impacts the following; sleep problems, bipolar disorder and macular degeneration. There is also ongoing research linking the harmful rays to, diabetes, obesity, immune system function, and an increased risk of cancer but more studies need to be conducted to fully tell blue light's impact.
Fortunately, there are ways we can protect ourselves, simply purchasing yellow or copper lens glasses online (amazon has them and they aren't very expensive) is a great way to prevent the blue light damage when looking at any sort of screen, not looking at screens in dark surroundings is also helpful, try to have a cut off time from electronics at least 1-2 hours before bed. All of these methods are easy, simple and effective. Some of the things you want to look for when purchasing glasses are "Anti Blue Light Filter [Sleep Better], UV Block Radiation Eyestrain Reading Safety Glasses Square Computer Eyewear Yellow 49mm Lens". It's important that they are anti blue light glasses. We are not paid by this company in any way, so this is just a suggestion but the Cyxus Blue Light Filter glasses are great, durable, and get the job done.
