2017 Holiday Gift Guide
5 Quick Gifts to Show Your Night Shift Worker Some Love
By: Robert Eilers | NightOwl.FIT Community | November 27th 2017
Tis’ the holiday season. At least that is what they say. I avoid stores around this time like the plague. Large groups of people. Way too much pumpkin spice air freshener. All if it is a walking nightmare for me. Don’t get me wrong I love the holidays. I love almost everything about it. The smell of a freshly cut tree, seeing family that finally come out of their cave(I am usually the one in the cave), and all the wonderful food. I pretty much stay amped up from October until New years. What I don’t get excited about is large crowds. Probably because I work the night shift. Over the years I have found that a lot of us on night shift tend to like the part about night shift that allows us to shop when the world is still asleep, or hit the stores when they are all at work. In the spirit of that, I wanted to put together a list of gift ideas either for a fellow night shifter or for the day walkers looking to shop for the night shifter. All of these available online.

1.Blue Light Therapy
Light therapy is a way to treat seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and certain other conditions by exposure to artificial light. SAD is a type of depression that occurs at a certain time each year, usually in the fall or winter.
During light therapy, you sit or work near a device called a light therapy box. The box gives off bright light that mimics natural outdoor light.
2.Blue Light Blocking Glasses
Exposure to artificial light is one of the largest often-overlooked health risks of living in the 21st century. Your early ancestors had no such worries, as their day started and ended with the rise and fall of the sun, which synchronized perfectly with their circadian rhythm.
Today, your body is still attuned to this internal clock. In the morning, bright, blue-light-rich sunlight signals to your body that it’s time to wake up. At night, as the sun sets, darkness should signal to your body that it’s time to sleep.
The problem is that most people living in developed countries no longer go to sleep when the sun sets.
Instead, we turn on LED lights, computers, televisions, tablets and smartphones, all of which expose us to varying amounts of blue light at a time of day when there’s supposed to be next to none. Your body is understandably confused as a result.
It’s now becoming clear that one of the least expensive and simplest ways to protect your body’s internal rhythm, and thereby support healthy sleep and a lowered risk of many chronic diseases, is to wear blue-light-blocking glasses not just at night but anytime you are exposed to artificial lights.
