Contrary to what many people think, sleep is not an inactive state. During sleep our bodies are doing lots of important work—repairing cells and tissues, restoring full, healthy function to our immune system, consolidating memories and rebooting the neural cells and networks of the brain. We’re burning calories the whole time. For a 150-pound person, the estimated calorie burn over a 7-hour night of rest is just over 440 calories. That’s a 40-minute jog on a treadmill! Getting plenty of high-quality rest is an important—and still overlooked– factor in weight control. Here are some of the ways you can harness your sleep routine and your overnight rest to help your body burn more calories and stay metabolically healthier. Activate your...

Should You Wear Blue Light Blocking Lenses?

If you work on a computer, use a smartphone, watch TV, or simply go out in the sun, you are being exposed to high-energy visible (HEV) blue light.

These computer glasses reflect blue light and prevent screen-induced headaches — and they're available with prescription lenses

Teddith's original pairs didn't have prescription lense options, and were just meant to be worn over contacts or on their own for folks with naturally great vision (lucky you!).

Here's...
