You guys, I’m a little embarrassed to admit how many hours a day I work behind my laptop or my phone screen, but I’m SO grateful to do what I absolutely love… from legitimately anywhere I want… surrounded by the people that mean the most to me… helping women and families all across the globe… and providing for our family beyond our wildest dreams… so I’m not TOO embarrassed.
I have recently been experiencing a very disrupted sleep pattern though… so I’m rocking these babies to see if they’re helpful since it just MAKES SENSE to me that it would!

🔹 Your circadian rhythm is the the 24 hour biological cycle that influences many internal functions. It’s most important job it to determine when your body is primed for being awake or asleep.
🔹 The use of electronics at night has been connected to sleep problems since these devices emit light of a blue wavelength. This has been found to trick your brain into thinking that it’s daytime.
🔹 When it gets dark, your pineal gland secretes the hormone melatonin, which tells your body to get tired and go to sleep. Blue light, whether from the sun or a laptop, is very effective at inhibiting melatonin production — thus reducing both the quantity and quality of your sleep… which is vital for optimal health.

The good news is that studies have show that even when people wear these snazzy blue-light-blocking glasses in a lit room while using an electronic device, they produce just as much melatonin as if it were dark!
