Blue Light Contributing to Bad Sleep?
Binge-watching your fav[o]rite show until the wee hours of the morning? Surfing the Net or texting late at night? If you find yourself unable to power down to get critical shut-eye, blue light could be to blame.
Exposure to TV, computers and smartphones, the three primary forms of blue light, can wreak havoc on your sleep as they impede the production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep and wake cycles.
Want better rest? Stop watching TV and using gadgets two hours before your head hits the pillow. Other slumber-promoting tips include:
- Cut out caffeine after 2 p.m.
- Stick to a bedtime schedule
- Set your house to a cool temperature
- Consider using essential oils like lavender
Sneak More Movement Into Your Workday
If you drive to work and park yourself in your office chair for hours, fitting exercise into your daily routine may seem daunting. But it doesn’t have to be.
Here are some easy ways to get moving:
Talk and walk. Whether you’re on a conference call or engaging in a brainstorming session, walk during the conversation.
Take the stairs. By choosing the stairs, you can add some significant steps into your day, depending on what floor you work on.
Just dance. If you have a standing desk, dance while you work. Put your headphones on and crank up your tunes. This approach, however, may be best for those working from home.
Swap your coffee break for a walking break. A brisk 10-15 minute walk during your break may help to improve mental clarity and your health.
