Block the blue

Having a hard time falling asleep at night? Get in bed and then stare up at the ceiling for hours, trying in vain to fall into a deep sleep? Try blocking the blue. The blue end of the light spectrum is emitted by light bulbs, computer screens, cell phone screens and televisions.

The blue light suppresses melatonin "the hormone of darkness" making your body think it's time to get up and play.

(It's basically like drinking a Red Bull energy drink.)

Try turning off all blue light emitting electronics at least 2 hours before bedtime.

See how much I love you, dear readers. I am telling you to turn off the computer!

Just be sure to read my blog earlier in the day and we will all be happy!
