If you regularly use digital devices before bed, you might be disrupting your natural sleep patterns.
Smart devices have revolutionised the way we work, live and play. We’re increasingly using them to work, read books, surf the web and watch TV.
But studies show there may be a downside. LED-lit digital devices emit Bluelight – a short wavelength, high-energy light that naturally boosts your alertness, memory and feelings of wellbeing.1
Of course, that’s great news – during the day.
But, at night, Bluelight can disturb your natural circadian rhythm – or the ‘clock’ that lets your body know when to sleep and when to wake up.
The result is you may find it harder to get to sleep, experience more restless sleep and have trouble waking up (because you’re still tired).
