Our workshops and Somnoblue sleep glasses at Maasstad Ziekenhuis (Intensive Care) and at the Haga Hospital (Intensive Care CCU). The interventions focused on sleep hygiene, shift work nutrition and the blue filtering glasses for improved sleep, performance, and wellbeing.
WEARING OUR SOMNOBLUE SLEEPING GLASSES ON A REGULAR BASIS WILL:
OPTIMIZE YOUR BEDTIME RITUAL
A bedtime ritual includes fixed behaviors before going to sleep that help you mentally and physically to prepare for a good night's sleep. The use of the glasses as part of your bedtime ritual improves the quality of your sleep.
INCREASE THE PROTECTION AGAINST CELL DAMAGE
The extended and amplified natural secretion of melatonin is not only good for your sleep, but also for your health. Melatonin is a powerful antioxidant that helps to prevent damage to your DNA and cells. As an antioxidant, melatonin is even five times more powerful in protecting your DNA than vitamin C.
CORRECT YOUR CIRCADIAN RHYTHM (WINTER BLUES)
Somnoblue can help you to advance the timing of your biological clock. This makes it easier to fall asleep in the evening and wake up refreshed in the early morning. It can also help to prevent the so-called 'Winter Blues'. See also the advice from the Knowledge Center Winter Dépression "Avoid blue light at bedtime". In order to maintain your biological rhythm, we advise limiting blue light - from e.g. room light, laptops, and telephones - in the evening. "You disrupt your biorhythm with this and this, therefore, contributes to the winter blues," "You better wear special glasses that block the blue light."
HELP TO IMPROVE YOUR DIET
Too much blue light exposure in the evening has a negative effect on your sleep and affects your metabolism and hormone balance. It disturbs the production of the hunger hormones ghrelin and leptin, leading to a tendency to snack. Regular use of Somnoblue glasses will assist you in maintaining your healthy diet.
STRENGTHEN YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
Both the quantity and quality of your sleep affects your immune system. For example, a period of poor sleep causes the number of white blood cells in your body to drop significantly. Regular usage of the Somnoblue glasses contributes to a more stable sleep/wake pattern and an increased natural secretion of melatonin. All of this contributes to a powerful immune system and a healthier body.
CLEAN AND REPAIR YOUR BRAIN
Less blue light before sleep is related to higher time spend in deep sleep in the first sleep phase. This depends on your biological predisposition. Because 'the cleaning process’ of your brain takes place mainly during deep sleep, Somnoblue contributes to a cleaner and fitter brain.
IMPROVE FOCUS AND PERFORMANCE
Improved quality of sleep will immediately result in better focus and concentration. By improving sleep patterns with Somnoblue, you will be more competent, productive and accurate. - More information about a workshop at your company -
