It’s the darkest time of year, and we crave light, but there are right and wrong kinds of light for our eyes and our brains. For example, humans have long known that staring at the sun will hurt you. What’s newer is that the blue light, or the unnatural glow of electronic devices, that we use so much in the modern world can also cause damage.
ADHD is associated with sleep problems, and so is blue light. Looking at devices right before bedtime can lead to diminishedsleep quality. Try to keep smartphones, tablets, etc. out of the bedroom and limit screen time before bed or go old-school with paper after dinnertime.
Just as blue light can confuse the brain, sunlight can help set it right. Get yourself and your family outside when you can. Let the sun tell your body when it’s time to be active and when it’s time to go to sleep. Even better, most outdoor activities involve great habits like staying active, working together, and enjoying the company of loved ones!
