I Wore Blue Light Blocking Glasses Every Day for a Week — Here’s What I Learned

If you strain your eyes looking at screens all day, these might be worth a shot. I'd heard of blue light blocking glasses before: They were yellow, ugly, and not worth the laughter I would get from both roommates and coworkers if I wore them regularly. But, I had a problem: For my job, I needed to spend a minimum of eight hours a day staring at a computer screen. Plus, unfortunately, in my downtime after work, I would often find myself staring at another, smaller screen: the rectangle of my iPhone 7, which would constantly beam more blue light into my face. I often felt like my eyes were red and tired by the end of the day, and...

Blue Light Pollution: What You Need to Know

Light can impact our skin and health in major ways. And, while sunlight might be the most well-known culprit of premature signs of aging, it’s not the only one. The truth is, we probably spend less time in the sun than we do in front of blue light. “Blue light is the typical light emitted from electronic devices, including our phones, computers, TVs and other electronic devices,” says Alissia Zenhausern, N.M.D. Thanks to the modern tech-savvy world we live in, blue light is unavoidable. And, unfortunately, many of us are exposed to unhealthy levels, aka blue light pollution. What is blue light pollution? Much like sunlight — UV rays — there is such thing as too much blue light. “Blue...

Is It Possible to Lose Weight While You Sleep?

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...

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!). But for those who wore prescription glasses full-time (like myself), the brand's classic computer glasses were sadly out of reach. After receiving loads of customer feedback, Teddith has finally made prescription lenses available for their computer glasses. Folks in the tech team wear prescription glasses every day, so we we've been really excited about this new launch. Teddith sent over some glasses in each of our prescriptions, and we've been wearing them at the office where each of us spend pretty much the entire day (about eight hours) staring at a computer screen. Here's...

Digital Health and Wellness

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it. Emerson’s statement relates well to our modern digital age; it can be a very good one, if we but know what to do with it. I personally love all the conveniences that our digital technology has provided for us. I love being able to text with my sons and connect with them while they are at college. My daughter recently moved to another State so having the ability to facetime her has been such a blessing. And once a month I look forward to being able to Skype with my mentor. There is no dispute technology has given...
