This is a most useful thing! In this Furlong house, we get far too much light. In the evening we are both on laptops and watching TV just like millions of other people. 

The screens we look at are telling our brains it’s daytime – even when it’s actually night.

Our Melatonin gets totally screwed.

Effects of such disruptions

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Fatigue

  • Increased risk for cancer

  • Insulin resistance/diabetes

  • Increased overall stress level

  • Increased heart disease

  • Increased digestive problems

There is a link to the article on Circadian Rhythms under the picture…click to read.

Melatonin and Circadian Rhythm

But there is something to help those of us that are over-illuminating ourselves….

This app on F.LUX.com has been designed to help us unscrew our Melatonin disruption – and its FREE!

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

Please do comment! That's part of the fun...
