Limit Blue Light to Reduce Hunger Pangs and Improve Your Health

You eat healthy. You exercise multiple times per week. Despite your best efforts, you can’t seem to lose those last, few pounds. Desperate to reach your goal weight, you don’t know what to do. If you can relate to this scenario, you might want to limit the blue light you’re exposed to in order to reduce unnecessary hunger pangs.

Blue Light From Electronics Can Wreak Havoc

Before the invention of artificial lighting, most people enjoyed peaceful, dark nights. Because the sun was their primary light source, the people of this era often went to bed during the early, night hours and arose at dawn. Due to artificial lighting sources, people now spend their nighttime hours engaging in their favorite activities such as surfing the web, watching television, or texting friends. Unfortunately, the convenient blue light provided by your favorite, electronic devices can wreak havoc on your body’s biological clock known as circadian rhythm. When your circadian rhythm becomes imbalanced, you encounter difficulty sleeping. And, a lack of quality sleep can lead to unwanted weight gain. Sadly, a disruption in your circadian rhythm might also contribute to the development of: 

  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Heart disease

To prevent blue light from negatively impacting your circadian rhythm, and your waistline, discontinue using electronics containing bright screens two to three hours before you retire to bed.

If you need a night light, shop for a dim, red one. Red lights are less likely to affect your circadian rhythm than other colors of lights. Drink in the sunshine during the daylight hours. Exposing yourself to a lot of sunlight throughout your day will help you sleep better at night. Do you work on a night shift? Perhaps, you can’t stand the thought of parting with your beloved electronics at night. In both of these cases, you should consider investing in a pair of glasses that block blue light.
