Do you suffer from migraines and/or chronic headaches of any type? Does your head pain keep you up so habitually that even when you do not have a headache you still find yourself tossing and turning through the night? Your headaches and sleepless night cycle may stem from a source you do not expect. Blue light rays from your flat-screen television, smartphones, tablets, and computer screens are linked to a plethora of negative symptoms.
Anyone who suffers from chronic migraines knows that finding a trigger for their pain is good news because it is another way to prevent a debilitating migraine. If you have noticed a cycle to your head pain that is linked to a day when you spent more time in front of screens or after a long work week of staring at a computer then it is likely that the blue light from these devices is a cause of these migraines.
Blue Light Blocking Glasses Reduce Exposure and Migraines.
There are many simple steps you can take to reduce the cycle of migraines and sleepless nights caused by blue light exposure. The first course of action is to wear blue light blocking glasses. It is that simple. These glasses look just like any other pair of eyeglasses so you will not stand out, yet they reduce your exposure to blue light which can be life-changing for those who have to work in front of screens or want to enjoy a movie or other media that emits blue rays.
Blue Light Blocking Glasses are Effective First Course of Action
Blue light blocking glasses are an effective first course of action but there are other steps you can take to improve your sleep and reduce your headaches. You should take mini-breaks throughout the day to look away from your screen at an object as far across the room as you can view. Study it for at least twenty seconds before you get back to work. Also, if you reduce your screen time close to the time you plan on going to sleep then your body will know to produce melatonin, the sleep hormone that is suppressed by blue light exposure. Two hours before bedtime is ideal but if you can even do one hour and use your blue light reducing glasses it would help reduce your migraine and increase sleep.
Blue Light is Naturally Occurring
Keep in mind that blue light is naturally occurring outdoors. It is actually good for you because it tells your body it is time to wake up and perk up in the mornings and as the day progresses and the sun dims then darkens your body knows to release sleep hormones because the light is no longer there. This is one of the reasons people find themselves depressed and out of sorts when they are exposed to too much, or even too little blue light.
