Blue wavelengths of light trick your body in thinking it is still day time and so it works to keep you awake. When the sun goes down, we tend to keep being exposed to the blue spectrum because of all the artificial lightning.
Use: Wear from sunset until you in bed ready to sleep. We're not going to hide the fact that these look super dorky - but they're for indoor use only and will help you sleep better. Wear them while watching tv, using your laptop, ipad or iphone and you can save yourself an hour of trying to fall asleep. Read more extensive coverage of the effect of artificial light on sleep.
F.lux is a free app for your pc or mac that adjusts your display at night time so the colours are warmer. Usually your computer screen is very bright - but you probably shouldn't be exposed to that much light at night time. When the sun sets, Flux automatically transitions your screen to a softer light setting. Research has demonstrated that exposure to excessive light at night, including extensive use of laptops, smartphones and tablet, can extend the time needed to fall asleep by 1 hour. Also, there is a negative effect on the quality of your sleep, so you won't feel as rested in the morning.
Music for the brain. Choose focus, relaxation or sleep. Brain.FM plays the music that helps put activate the optimal brain wave state for your chosen goal.
The Science of Sleep
The hormones cortisol and melatonin interact in a diurnal cycle with cortisol levels being highest in the morning/day and melatonin being highest in the evening/night. Cortisol gets you out of bed in the morning and melatonin tucks you into bed in the night. Leaving aside the entrained circadian rhythm, light is the primary signal your body responds to throughout this cycle. Blue light suppresses melatonin to keep you awake during the day.
