PROTECTING YOUR EYES FROM THE HARMFUL EFFECTS OF BLUE LIGHTS: YOUR USUAL WAYS ARE NOT ENOUGH
We all know how damaging blue lights are to our health. We know tips to minimize exposure and to decrease the negative effects of it. Like, the ever famous 20-20 rule, blinking your eyes often, and/or resting your eyes by setting a reminder. These are known tips and are proven effective, but there is a simple yet underrated way to keep your eyes refreshed and relaxed most of the time.
DRINK PLENTY OF WATER.
Yes. You read that right. We know how good water is to our bodies. It carries nutrients and oxygen to our cells, stabilized heartbeat, flushes bacteria from our bladder, and many more, but do you know that drinking plenty of water can also keep our eyes healthy?
When we are not hydrated, there is not enough water that is circulating in our bodies. As a result, our eyes will dry out. This will make our eyes easily tired more than usual. And if you think we are getting kind of far from our topic, the answer is no, because blue lights contribute to dry eyes, too. Blue lights and dehydration are not a good combination for the eyes.
