Light Sleep

2837300008

Experts have advised against using electronic devices before bed, citing that the light emitted from them can disrupt sleep. New research has emerged that suggests this theory may be a bit extreme.

Dr. Lois Krahn, a psychiatry professor at the Mayo Clinic suggests that either dimming the screen’s brightness, or holding the device at least 14″ away from the eyes keeps the light at a level below that which is believed to effect the production of melotonin, a hormone that promotes sleep.

Good news for those of us who are tethered to our electronics until they are ready to go to bed.
