If you’re like most people, you’re staring at your electronics screen all day and probably most of the night. All of that blue light exposure can mess with your sleep cycle. Research has shown blue light suppresses the production of melatonin, the hormone that tells your body it’s time to sleep. Blue light blocking glasses give you the extra protection for your eyes from too much junk light exposure.
Red light and Infrared Light can be very healing and regenerative. Red Light is a great stress reliever and is very beneficial to metabolism. Due to the large amount of time we spend indoors, we are often deficient in exposure to Infrared Energy. Red light promotes relaxation and a sense of calm energy, reduces anxiety and irritability. It also
helps you fall asleep and get a deeper, more restful night’s sleep.
It is very important to sleep in as close to complete darkness as possible. That said, it’s not always easy to block out every stream of light using curtains, blinds or drapes, particularly if you live in an urban area (or if your spouse has a different schedule than you do). In these cases, an eye mask can be helpful.
