While our increasingly interconnected world presents a huge amount of new opportunities due to improvements in technology and communications, being online all of the time can have its downsides too
A commonly reported issue that effects many professionals and students alike is disrupted sleep due to late night use of electronics. The bright light emitting from our laptops, TVs, phones and other devices can interrupt our circadian rhythms, which tend to associate bright light with periods of wakefulness.
A popular resolution is to reduce or cut out use of electronics for a period of time for several hours each day immediately prior to going to sleep at night. Many individuals have reported significantly improved sleep duration and quality after implementing this concept.
Those who struggle to fully cut out the use of all screens in the evenings can try wearing blue light glasses during the hours prior to sleep.
Similarly, users can try downloading a desktop app which reduces screen blue light output as the day progresses.
Setting achievable new year’s resolutions is a great way to start the year with the right energy, and doing the work to stick to them feels great.
Resolutions don’t have to be grandiose, in fact, the more realistic and practically achievable, the better.
All the best with setting and sticking to your resolutions for 2022, and reaping the benefits as the integrated changes allow for benefits in all areas of life
