Can This New Blue-Light-Killing Reader Help You Sleep Better?
Is reading before bed part of your nighttime ritual? If you’re using a glowing screen, the chapters you’re flying through could actually be keeping you awake instead of putting you to sleep. We’ve all seen the headline that warns, “Don’t use electronics before bed!” According to studies, late-night screen time can cause insomnia, disrupt your sleep, and make you tired in the morning. But we can all agree that giving up electronics prior to bedtime is non-negotiable.
During the day, we’re surrounded by blue light coming from the sun, so this light looks and feels natural. As the sun sets, the ambient light around you becomes more amber. Blue light impacts the way our bodies produce melatonin, and exposure to it in the evening can ultimately make it harder to fall asleep and make our sleep less restful.
