What you can do?
♦ 'Use dim red lights for night lights. Red light has the least power to shift circadian rhythm and suppress melatonin.
♦ 'Avoid looking at bright screens beginning two to three hours before bed.
♦ 'If you work a night shift or use a lot of electronic devices at night, consider wearing blue-blocking glasses or installing an app that filters the blue/green wavelength at night.
