In the modern age of biohacking and the integration of all little things that can make us healthier, you’ll find blue light blocking glasses. If this is the first time you’re hearing about them, let me give you the high notes and why you should buy a pair (cost me a whopping $7 for the pair I got).
-Improved + syncronized circadium rhythms (aka better sleep!)
-Noticably reduced eye strain (especially when viewing electronic screens and driving at night)
-Increased energy (as a result of better sleep)
-Reduced bodily inflammation + cortisol levels (stress response hormone)
-Enhanced mental clarity and focus
-Protection from prolonged exposure to the harmful wavelengths in most artificial light sources
For me, it’s a no brainer. My daily habit is to put these guys on when I’m on my phone or at my computer at night. If I’m sitting around on my phone for a while during the day, I’ll have them on then as well. Some people wear them all the time (maximum benefit), but my focus is to limit my exposure during computer and phone screen time. Pick what works for you! The best routine is the one you actually do every day.
When I wear them consistently, I can tell the biggest difference in regards to eye strain; especially when I’m staring at a screen at night or when I’m driving at dark. It’s a huge help and it prevents me having to blink my eyes and squint to keep my vision clear.
Depending on your preference in glasses, there are two styles that I really like, I’ve got the brown tortoise ovalish frames with amber lens. There’s also the classic black rectangularish frames with the yellow lens.
I would love to see your photos in your blue blockers! Tag me on instagram @runonorganic
