Blue light is a type of visible light, and it's the shortest wavelength of all the colors in the visible spectrum. That means it has the most energy. Blue light is found in sunlight and in artificial light sources like LED lights and computer screens.

Exposure to blue light can have both positive and negative effects. On the positive side, natural blue light from the sunlight can improve your mood and help you stay alert. It can also boost your memory and cognitive performance. It is your natural body clock which tells you HELLO wake up in the morning and what tells you I'm sleepy go to bed at night.

On the other hand, exposure to artificial blue light that we bring into our lives through computer screens, phones ets can have harmful effects. It can disrupt your sleep patterns, causing you to feel tired during the day. It can also contribute to digital eye strain, which is a condition that causes fatigue, headaches, and dry eyes.
