So why would I want to walk around the house looking like a construction worker at night? I heard a theory that orange glasses block out the blue light from things like TVs, smart phones, tablets, and computers that inhibit the production of melatonin (our sleep hormone).
The one thing I do know, is that sleep is one of the most important things you need to maintain great health and feel awesome.
So if I’ve had a stressful day, or I have spent a lot of time in front of the computer, I wear the glasses for an hour before bed. I have found they help calm my world down and I get quite sleepy before bed.
Apple have also introduced an update called Night Shift to their phones that eliminates the blue light from their screens in the evening. If you are struggling with sleep, I believe it’s certainly a hack worth looking into.
While these five points I've mentioned may seem a little crazy to some, I've had a lot of fun exploring them and seeing if they make a difference to how I feel on a daily basis.
For great health, I'm a big believer in doing the non-glamorous fundamentals well—eating, sleeping, and moving daily, along with cultivating a positive attitude and stressing less—but I've found these hacks have made a great addition to my life and are certainly worth trying if you are feeling adventurous.
