Sometimes you have to unplug to reconnect

Posted on August 17, 2015 at 2:20 PM

This past weekend was wonderful.  My husbsand had a birthday so we celebrated by going to the mountains to camp, fish, hike and do a little 4 wheeling.

I have to admit I have not been 4 wheeling much ever.  My very first excursion brought me here.  Not too bad!  Living in Wyoming is wonderful.  I just wish the camping season was a little longer.  Already it gets pretty chilly at night up in the Big Horn Mountains.  I think we will need to be investing in another 4 wheeler.  I may have found a new, loved hobby!

Did you know that camping for a few days resets your whole system?  We tend to take in too much blue light, which comes from computers, TVs, tablets, energy effecient light bulbs and other devices.  While some blue light during the daylight hours can promote attentiveness, at night it can thow things off and even lead to poor sleep.  Getting enough sleep (6-8 hours of straight sleep) is important to reset our bodies and let hormone levels even out.  Poor sleep is related to increased risk of depression, diabetes, cardiovascular issues,cancer and obesity.  Harvard Health Publications noted that blue light at night can cause a decrease in melatonin.  Melatonin helps us get the proper amount of sleep we need each night .  Without the proper amount we don't get the sleep we need to keep our bodies healthy.  So plug in during the day and get your fix, but remember to unplug and stay away from  blue light at night.
