Scientific Research Shows That Blue Light Makes You Less Sleepy At Work

A recent research conducted from Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) has shown that exposing to short wavelength, or blue light can improve alertness and brain performance. In other words, you’ll be less sleepy and more productive when working under the blue light.

“These results contribute to our understanding of how light impacts the brain and open up a new range of possibilities for using light to improve human alertness, productivity and safety” – Steven Lockley, PhD, neuroscientist at BWH

    The next challenge for the researchers will be how to deliver better lighting to maximize the benefits of these lights which can increase productivity and safety at work.

    Of course, if you have quality sleep, your brain will perform better. But don’t worry if you can’t often have quality sleep because study shows that if you believe that you’ve slept well, you’ll have good brain performance too.
