Ever feel like technology is taking over your life? My boyfriend and I have had more than one squabble over how much time I spend on my phone. I’m addicted, I’ll admit. I spend all day in front of the computer working (blogging) and then in the evening I answer a lot of emails, post to Instagram, and start my to-do list for the next day via the notes app of my phone.
Turns out I’m not the only one that can’t tear their eyes away from their phones for more than a few minutes. The average person spends 10 hours a day looking at screens, whether it be that phone screen, tablet screen, computer screen, or TV screen! That’s 70 hours a week we’re staring at our technology!
While looking at your phone obsessively instead of paying attention to your sister may cause a few squabbles here and there, there’s actually something worse going on behind the scenes of all that technology flooding your day!
Your computer, TV, tablet, cell phone, and even those energy-efficient light bulbs are all emitting harmful blue light, which has nearly the same effect on eyes as those harmful UV rays! In fact, being exposed to high amounts of blue light throughout the day has been linked to health problems such as Macular Degeneration, eye fatigue, dry eyes, and sleep disorders, including insomnia. Research shows that it may even contribute to more serious health problems such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and even cancer.
With most of us being surrounded by technology 24/7, it’s no wonder so many of us are experiencing these health and sleep problems! All this light might be great for keeping us awake and alert during the day, but at night, it works against us by throwing off the body’s natural biological clock.
