The majority of us spend an unhealthy amount of time in front of a screen, which is why blue light blockers have become all the rage. Naturally occurring blue light waves from sunlight help you maintain a healthy circadian rhythm. It cues your body that it’s daytime, boosts your alertness and energy, and it improves your mood. When exposed to blue light via screen time well into the evening hours, it can interfere with your sleep/wake cycle. Our sales manager, Robert Barkoff, uses TrueDark glasses to filter out “junk” light and reduce the effects on his brain and body. BioRythem Safe and Gamma Ray blue blockers are also great options.
