Chronic insomnia is nothing to joke about, I know. I suffered from it for years. I had weeks where I thought I would lose my mind. You know, feeling so tired all day long and then finally getting to bed only to toss and turn all night long. Or, worse yet, fall sleep immediately, but then wake up an hour later and be wide awake.
Problem is, insomnia is a vicious cycle. If you get into it, it can make itself worse and worse. You see, when you do not get deep into sleep, your body is not able to produce the right hormones that help you to sleep. Is not that terrible? That's how we can get so deeply into sleep deprivation. The body actually needs deep sleep to help it sleep better and better. That's what the science says anyway.
I'm getting off track, let me tell you about a solution that has changed my life. I no longer suffer from insomnia at all. I get night after night of long, restful, deep sleeping. Even if I have to wake up during the night to go to the bathroom, I get right back to sleep no problem. Heck, when I used to wake up in the middle of the night, it would take me hours to get back to sleep sometimes. That's if I even ever got back to sleep.
So, what transformed me in to a miserable, chronic insomniac to a well-rested person ready to take on each new day? Why my blue light blocking glasses of course! I bet you did not see that one coming.
Not that many people are aware of what their TVs, computer screens and light bulbs can do to them in the evenings and the middle of the night. TVs, computers and some lights emit a lot of blue colored light. This light is in the same spectrum and the light in the sky at dawn. This blue light has a funny effect on the body. It causes the body to shut down relaxation processes and get the body to make you alert.
Alert is the last thing you want to be at bed time!
Exactly what blue light does to you is tell you pituitary gland to stop the natural production of melatonin. Melatonin is the key hormone that causes us to relax and fall into a deep sleep. It is like nature's sleeping pill. But if you eye balls are exposed to blue light in the evenings, then you will not get proper melatonin production. This leads to a poor nights sleep, which in turn leads to chronic insomnia due to reasons stated above. A vicious cycle.
Luckily, you can block out the blue light no matter how much TV or computer you look at in the evening. It is really really.
All you have to do is wear a pair glasses that block the blue light. These have been proven my thousands of people with dramatic effects. They can fit over your regular glasses. They are scratch resistant and impact proof. They will provide you years of blue-light free evenings and you will notice a marked difference in you ability to deeply relax at night. I know this, because they helped me get rid of my own chronic insomnia.
Another huge benefit of blue-light blocking glasses is that if you need to get up during the night and you must turn the light on. Just pop the glasses on first, and it will help you be able to fall back into a deep sleep quickly. This very well could be one of the best investments you'll ever make.
