Episode #114: How artificial light can cause anxiety & depression + tips to help protect your mental and physical health from adverse artificial light exposure
By now, I am sure you have heard about the dangers of artificial blue light. Almost every day there is a new article talking about how you shouldn’t sleep near your smart phone, or how you should avoid spending more than several hours in a windowless, artificial-lit room, or how you need to be careful how much time you spend in front of a computer screen. Is there any truth to all these warnings? Is artificial blue light really that bad for us? And what is it exactly? Is there anything we do about artificial blue light exposure in today’s 24-hour, technology-centred world?
In this episode I interview Andy, the founder of BLUBlox, to discuss what blue light is, how it affects our mental health, and what we can do to protect ourselves.
