This interesting article from the New York Times does a great job of describing what happens when a family's sleep patterns collide. What really got us interested in the article though, was the mention of computer screens perhaps being a contributor to routine late nights.
Apparently, computer screens emit blue light which act as a stimulator to the human brain - effectively telling it that it's daytime and that we should be awake.
Lots of us turn on the computer late at night when we can't get to sleep. Perhaps this small action is actually making our insomnia worse. Something to think about - and, as always, we'd appreciate hearing your thoughts.
