A few weeks ago, on a whim, I made a little purchase. I ordered blue light-blocking glasses and it’s transformed my sleep. When I put them on in the evening, not only am I sleepy within an hour, I’m out like a light within minutes of my head hitting my pillow. Since I started using the glasses I average 8 hours of shut-eye a night. Hot damn!
I’ve noticed a difference in my hunger level too. Pre-glasses, I was lucky to get 5 hours of sleep and I always felt ravenous the next day. Once I started using the glasses, my sleep improved and my hunger levels were normal. Sweet!
My Nightly Routine
At 9:00 pm sharp I slip on the glasses. It doesn’t matter if I’m using my iPad for reading, cleaning my kitchen or brushing my teeth…those glasses are on at 9:00 p.m. They don’t come off until all lights are off and I slip into bed.
Bedtime is 10:00 p.m. I don’t mean getting ready for bed (washing my face, brushing my teeth, getting on my PJs). At 10:00 p.m. the lights are off and I’m in bed.
I still take 5g of melatonin nearly every night. But I’ve noticed that I fall asleep quicker and longer when using the glasses.
It’s the best $10 I’ve spent in a long time.
