If you’re like me, computers and other electronics play a crucial role in your home-based business. Hello! Laptop lifestyle going on over here! So, being smart about reducing eye strain can lead to a happier mood and a better quality of life, which we all need.
Follow these simple tips for avoiding those blurry, tired eyes by the end of the day:
1. Eat good food. Whole food that is nutrient dense. It supports healthy vision, and overall wellness in the body. Einkorn products, Ningxia Red, and our organic wolfberries and all great choices to get on the right track nutritionally. Just 2 oz. of Ningxia Red per day gives you a powerful dose of dense nutrition and powerful antioxidants, along with a healthy dose of yumminess. How simple is that?
Exposure to high levels of that light close to bedtime can suppress the production of the sleep-promoting hormone melatonin by the brain’s pineal gland, says Charles Czeisler, M.D., chief of the Division of Sleep and Circadian Disorders at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. That’s why he and other experts advise that it’s best to avoid staring into computer screens and smart phones 2 or 3 hours before you hit the pillow. If that’s not realistic for your lifestyle, choose blue blocker glasses.
Blue blocker glasses impede the capacity of bright light to suppress melatonin production.
I purchased mine from Zenni Optical, and made them a little more special with some custom engraving. The design is 126225, Tortoise Shell, and I chose the script option when customizing my glasses. Click the picture or this link, and you’ll save $5 on your first order!
When I pick them up, I’m reminded I’m getting online for a purpose, and not just to surf the interwebs. I wear them throughout the day, especially if I’m working on my phone after sunset. They really do seem to help.
3. Soothe your eyes with Frank. Yup. Frankincense essential oil supports healthy vision and makes a great topical soother for tired eyes. Simply dilute with a small amount of carrier oil and rub around the eye socket, being careful not to get the oils into your eyes, or create a raccoon effect with your eye make-up. 🙂 I use this protocol nearly every morning to also support my mature skin and avoid more fine lines and wrinkles, cause Frank is great for skin. Win-win.
And Frankincense is included in our Premium Starter Kit, so if you’re brand new to oils and you join my team, you’ll get introduced to Frank with your very first purchase!
Until next time, we wish you WELL!
