I am one of those people who got to sleep with my phone in my hand. I know I am not alone. It’s just addicting to stay hooked about every other news that pops up, whether it’s Tom Hiddleston giving you weather updates or this new mash-up for Rihanna’s “Work.”
Either way, staying up because of your phone isn’t just how intriguing the latest news is, it also has something to do with how the light on your phone can suppress the melatonin (the hormone responsible for making you sleepy) in your body.
The smart people over at iPhone then developed Night Shift. A new update along with the iOS 9.3, Night Shift adjusts your phone’s light and screen colors so you won’t mess up your melatonin even if you’re updating yourself with everyone’s else Snapchat story at 10 p.m. In the morning, Night Shift will shut off to allow your phone to adjust back to your regular settings.
Watch this Instagram video to know how to activate Night Shift on your phone.
Did you snag the📱update? Don’t forget to eliminate 🖲 #bluelight, 👆🏻tap the ☀️🌙 icon to set your #nightshift to automatically turn down blue light to prepare your body for sleep. Blue light interrupts the production of melatonin which can keep you from falling into a deep sleep. This throws off the bodies natural #circadianrhythm which can have you dragging the next day. I set my ⏰ to eliminate blue light at sunset 🌒 and allow it after sunrise 🌖 #sleep #wellnesswednesday 👋🏻model: @jesswass
Sweet dreams, everyone![Allure]
