Ever felt tired after spending a long time in front of the computer? Computer screens, smartphones, tablets, fluorescent bulbs emit blue light. Blue light is a range of light between 400-490nm that contains the highest amount of energy with the shortest wavelength in the visible light spectrum.

- Limit the time you spend on electronic devices as much as possible (take a break and look at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds every 20 minutes.)
