Blue Light

I’m seeing this everywhere lately for some reason. Maybe someone is trying to tell me something? Or maybe I’m seeing it as I looked it up once and now Google shows me ads for it every which way. I’d bet on the later.

What is it? Blue Light. It comes from computers, iPads, phones, etc. and makes your body think that night is actually day. So levels of this and that, I am too lazy to be scientific, increase and you get wired like it is day time. Then that means, no sleep. Your body doesn’t want to sleep because it thinks it is day time. So you toss and turn for hours because your body wants to be up and about. All because you used a computer or some other device at night.

Sounds a bit hokey at first. But there is mounting evidence that it is actually true. Even those stupid environmentally friendly light bulbs have it. Those aren’t good for you anyway so I don’t use them.

I just thought I’d get that out there, as you never know, blue light could be why you aren’t sleeping, if you aren’t. For me it’s the heat, dumb apartments. They say you should stop using everything a few hours before bed. Then what would I do?

Have you ever heard of blue light? Do you think the blue light rage is true? Maybe with all the studies manufacturers will wake up and change things. Yeah right, that would cost more money, so that is never going to happen. Blue light is something to think about anyway.

Enjoy life, forget the strife.

I’ve been using a warming dimmer on my laptop for about a year now, and I think it’s making a difference. I still have trouble sleeping, but I’d say I’ve experienced about a 30% improvement.

Stop using everything before bed? You’re right, what would we do? Go outside and stare at the stars for three hours?

    Yeah it would get quite boring doing that.

      Or you drink a few scotch and wait until a few stars appear all by themselves. 😉 That might not be that boring as sitting for 3 hours doing some star gazing.

ha ha, would it be bragging to confess to falling asleep with my laptop open in my lap watching television. Or would it be something to keep quiet in that I woke up when said laptop fell to the floor.

    Well as long as the laptop didn’t break
