What are the benefits of using Notion dark mode?

One of the most significant benefits of dark mode is that it can help prevent eye strain from worsening pre-existing visual problems such as astigmatism, primarily when used at night or in low-lit environments. Besides, there are many more amazing benefits of dark mode, as outlined below:

Dark mode alleviates digital eye strain.

Digital eye strain is often characterized by awful symptoms such as chronic dry eyes, eye pain, teary eyes, blurred vision, frequent headaches, and more. Dark mode helps reduce digital eye strain, minimizing these awful symptoms.

Dark mode reduces blue light exposure.

Research shows that when we are exposed to too much blue light, it inhibits how our body interprets night and day time. Hence, it makes it difficult to fall and stay asleep. Using dark mode can help minimize such exposure, leading to better quality sleep. 

Dark mode sharpens your focus. 

Undoubtedly, Notion is more stunning and fabulous when used in dark mode. You'll love how your alerts, tasks and graphs pop out better while other parts of your screen seem to fade in the background. With dark mode, you can quickly view alerts as they contrast greatly with the background, improving your focus. 

Dark mode also supports your health and wellbeing.

After hours spent reading on a blinding white screen, we unconsciously begin to squint and maintain a horrible posture leading to neck and shoulder pain alongside the screen headaches. Using dark mode at appropriate times can help support better posture as you no longer have to move too close to your screen to maintain eye coordination. Overall, dark mode can improve your eye health and entire wellbeing.
