Then, I shared five pros and five cons of blue light.  Today, I share how to truly biohack blue light by avoiding its drawbacks and biohacking its benefits.

Protecting Against Blue Light

While it is impossible to avoid blue light, here are some precautions you can take to avoid some of the negative effects of blue light.

Here are some practical steps to begin incorporating into your daily life:

And my top supplements to add to your diet:

Using Blue Light to Your Advantage

  • You can use a bright light device (or sun) to increase your alertness and mood, however, when doing this it's a good idea to cover your face, so I'll use a welding helmet.
  • Coffee works well blue light (15 min in the morning) to further boost your mood and reset your circadian rhythm (in the morning)
  • Reduce acne and bacteria from your face by using this blue light/infrared device on your skin for around 15 minutes/day 
  • Workout outside in the sun while wearing blue glasses will decrease your perceived muscle output and help you work out longer/stronger

Again, I can’t stress enough that you should take necessary precautions against blue light and avoid overexposure.  However, with some smart biohacking knowledge, you should be good to go!  If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me for consultation or join the discussion in the MyBiohack community Facebook Page.
