Yet we often spend little attention ensuring we get the most out of our sleep.
Quality sleep is linked to better focus, a happier mood, a healthier heart, weight control, and much more. So why not take some small steps that will help your sleep even better?
We're going to adjust your phone settings so that the screen changes color in the evening to a softer, warmer tone. Not only will this serve as a subtle reminder that it's time to start winding down, but it will also limit the harsh blue light your phone is emitting.
Why do you want to limit blue light before bed? Blue light can limit the secretion of melatonin, a key hormone related to sleep.
Put simply, blue light reminds our body of sunlight and tricks us into feeling like it is still daytime, even though it islate in the evening.
Tip: It will likely look strange for the first few days, but stick it out. In less than a week you won't even notice. After making this change, if you do use a device that doesn't have night shift enabled, you'll instantly notice the blue light, which will feel harsh on your eyes.
