Is Late-Night Blue Light Keeping You Awake? Then it’s Time to Stop Reading.

Advertising feature written in a friendly tone.

One of the many benefits of the modern eReader is the backlight. The backlight allows us to read in a dark room – a point of praise and wonder for sleep-deprived spouses, partners, and co-sleepers of late-night readers everywhere. But what if that helpful backlight is hurting you in ways you can’t see? Scientific research has shown that the blue hue of most modern screens can ‘trick’ your eyes into thinking it’s morning. As a result, your sleep rhythms can become disrupted. Viewing a screen for a prolonged amount of time before bed, on a regular basis, can lead to fragmented sleep, which in turn can cause insomnia and fatigue the following day. Studies have even linked this phenomenon to other damaging health effects.

So, what can we do? For many, the late-night bedtime reading session is the most satisfying part of the day, or perhaps even the most satisfying part of life itself. Must we give it up?

The Lencent Reading Light eliminates late-night exposure to damaging blue light by using a warm, eye-friendly LED light. It’s bright enough to read by, but gentle enough that it won’t wake others in the room. It clips easily and firmly onto all eReader devices. What’s more, it will also clip to your book (remember those?) I’ve been using mine for the last three months while I’ve tackled the difficult job of sleep-training a baby. The light allows me to keep to my beloved habit of reading before bed whilst also keeping the room dark and tranquil enough for a baby and its tired mother to sleep. Perfect.

To find out more, and to watch a video of the light in action, search for ‘Lencent reading light.’

Cycle to Work.

To be cycling is to be winning. In 2020, we’re beginning to realise the true value of things: the importance of being active, our responsibility to look after our planet, the benefits of enjoying the simple things in our lives. Cycling can bring all this to you. For a fraction of the price of a car, and a fraction of the costs of its maintenance, you can be hitting your health goals and reducing your carbon footprint every single day.

Government grants can help you to buy a bike in a way that suits you, including interest-free loans and payment instalments. There’s even a Fix Your Bike voucher scheme that gives a £50 grant to anybody needing repairs on their bike. What’s more, the growing network of safe cycle lanes across the country means that cycling can give you the freedom to enjoy your commute at your own pace. You’ll appreciate new things on your journey, free from the burden of traffic jams and road rage. Savour your own small piece of the world with every turn of the pedal.
