1. Wear Blue light Blocking Glasses

Wear blue Light blocking glasses. These are vital if you are going to be looking at screens late at night  Yes, they may look dorky but they work! The eye is our bodies primary sensor to light, so restricting the blue light coming into the eye is key. if you wanting something that looks good we recommend our Style Blue Blocking Glasses

 4. Use Low Blue Light Light Bulbs

energy efficient light bulbs such as halogen lights, fluorescent lights and even some LED lights put out a lot of blue containing 'white light'. Traditional light sources such as incandescent light bulbs or even fire (i.e. candles) put out a lot less blue light. However for the very best in low blue light lighting we recommend our Sleep Enhancing Bulbs and our Red LED nightlights

 

 5. Sleep with an Eye Mask

Blue Blockers Eye Mask

Even though our skin senses light, our eyes are the primary sensors. Our eyelids are translucent and studies have shown that even a small amount of light perceived through closed eyelids can disrupt circadian rhythm and your sleep quality. Cover them with a contoured eye mask.

 

 6. Use low wattage Red Night Lights

If you must get up during the night, don’t turn on the main lights. If you really need light to go to the loo, look at having a low wattage red light night light.

 

7.Reduce Light Pollution

Turn off or cover any electronic devices that glow or put out light. Your room needs to be pitch black all night. Replace digital clocks with analog clocks.
