How I've Been Reducing The Effects of So Much Screen Time!

Wellness May 13, 2020

Now more than ever my screen time is astronomical. Anyone else in the same boat?

Every week, without fail, I get that notification on my phone that says ‘Your screen time is up __%’. Not ONCE since the start of the pandemic has it been down. Which is no surprise really, as I’ve relied on screens for business and social connection more than ever. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE being connected online, but I have to say that I’ve noticed it taking a physical toll on my eyes and  my sleep.

So, recently I’ve put a few things into place to try to reduce the effects of such a huge amount of screen time, and balance out my exposure to blue light. For those of you who don’t fully know what blue light is (also referred to as High Energy Visible or HEV light) is – it’s essentially a range of visible light spectrum that comes from using technology like phones, computers, televisions, and lights. Overexposure to blue light can impact your eyes, whilst also messing up your melatonin production, making it difficult to sleep. In collaboration with Zigi & Marais (makers of gorgeous reading glasses and blue light glasses), I thought it could be useful to share with you how I’m working to reduce the impacts of so much screen time.

A Bit About Zigi & Marais

Before I get into the things I have been doing to I wanted to introduce you to Zigi & Marais, a glasses brand that sells affordable AND chic reading glasses and blue light blocking glasses. The thing that appealed to me the most about them is that they’re made from 100% recycled plastic, meaning they are made from post consumer waste that would otherwise end up in land fill. I’m such a big fan of the creative use of materials, but what I love most is they look good whilst also being sustainable. I was also excited to learn that the company that makes them has traditionally made glasses for the big name brands, which is why they can offer such an affordable price. I’m in!
