Has your screen time gone up by 300% the past couple weeks? Us too.
Working from home, Netflix binging, and resurrecting your FarmVille carrots can take a toll on your eyes. Many of us are experiencing increased headaches, trouble sleeping, red and itchy eyes, or general tiredness, on top of everything else. What to do, what to do?
Try our blue-light blocking glasses! SnugZ has two fashion-forward unisex styles, the TFINLEY and TQUINN, both of which are handcrafted with anti-blue light technology and 100% UVA/UVB protection. It’s the ultimate work-from-home warrior accessory.
SnugZ has worked diligently to source retail-quality glasses that are sure to make a promo-forward statement. These cuties have scratch resistant lenses and anti-glare coating. Both the frame and the lens are Grade AAA Polycarbonate with Maximum Optical Clarity and block approximately 32% of blue light. Plus, they’re hecka stylish too.
Why do Blue Light Blockers Matter?
Optometrists all agree that blue light puts a lot of strain on your eyes. Simply put, our eyes aren’t equipped to filter blue light as well as we filter other types of light that occur naturally (such as outdoor sunlight or UV rays).
In this age of technology, we’ve rapidly advanced our exposure to blue light on a daily basis. One source stated that “when you’re looking at computer screens and other digital devices that emit significant amounts of blue light, this unfocused visual “noise” reduces contrast and can contribute to digital eye strain.”
All in all, looking at our computers, tablets, TVs, phones, and other digital displays have a not-so-hot effect on the health of our eyes.
If you’re like us, you might be getting a little stir-crazy. Being stuck inside and away from your regular daily routine is generally no bueno. Many of us are now working from home, trying to homeschool our kids, and not able to access our favorite activities.
“The coronavirus (COVID-19) is already proving to be an unprecedented disruption in our industry and economy. We are doing everything in our power to prevent the spread of COVID-19.”
– Brandon Mackay, SnugZ USA CEO
It’s safe to say we’re all a little out of our comfort zone and worried about the effects of COVID-19. Shelter-in-place orders are popping up all over the world, forcing us to adapt. Since you’ve probably already run through your Netflix queue, here are a few ideas to keep you occupied and sane during social isolation.
Learn that new thing you’ve put off
Now that we have so much more time at home, we have the great opportunity to try out all those “someday” activities you’ve been meaning to try. Connect with your artist by painting a Bob-Ross-esque masterpiece. Read that book that has been on your nightstand for six months. Cook an elaborate meal (chicken nuggets can be included).
Man, aren’t we lucky that this quarantine is happening in an age where we can still connect with our loved ones from afar? Give your mom a call, see your friend’s faces, or watch movies together with your long-distance significant other. Just because we are directed to socially distance ourselves does not mean we can’t still reach out. FaceTime, Marco Polo, Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp, and Facebook Messenger all support video chat.
Make screen time convenient & stylish
Many of us are spending more time than usual staring at our phones, whether it be video conferencing, binging your favorite shows, or scrolling through Instagram. Why not make it more convenient?
Try our new Momo Stick. This simple device attaches to the back of your phone, adding barely any bulk, while allowing you to push up the attached band to create a perfect grip for your finger. It also acts as a stand to prop up your phone for optimal Netflix viewing (don’t lie–we know you’re watching Parks & Rec for the eighth time).
It’s the ultimate work-from-home accessory. Customize with your branding in full color direct print today! And while you’re at it, check out our full line of work-from-home centered products.
Kids: It Takes a Village
We all know that our littlest friends thrive on routine, so having all this uncertainty can make the stuck-at-home experience…..not so fun. But life doesn’t stop! Kiddos still have homework, still want high-energy playtime, and still miss their normal activities. Never fear! Humanity has banded together to give us some hope.

Above all, stay healthy
The United States Government has strongly recommended social isolation, as well as self-quarantine measures. We encourage all to take these warnings seriously and obey local and national guidelines.
Now more than ever, it is important to keep washing your hands (minimum of 20 seconds with antibacterial soap!), practicing social distancing, and disinfecting common surfaces. Stay safe, stay home, and stay healthy!
