Hell yeah, I got you.


Studies are finally becoming popular that show the dangerous (or at least obnoxious) effects of blue light on our sleep patterns. Our eyeballs and our bodies are optimized for sunlight. You’d wake up when the sunrise got too bright, and you’d run out of things to do when the sun went down, so you’d sleep. Now, we’ve got Netflix we can hold 5 inches from our face while we lay in bed until 2AM.

At least an hour or two before bed, either turn off your screens, or try blue-light blocking glasses (not affiliate link). They’re not so stylish but they get the job done and it’s worth it. Pro-tip: drive at night with these on. The difference is unreal; it’s like sitting in your living room watching a boring but relaxing TV show. Except in this living room, lunatics are flying by you in a halogen-light induced mania.

(You also might want to install F.lux or something similar on your computer. It keeps your screen at a gentle yellow all day long, and increases the strength at night. Your iPhone also comes with a night mode, where you can turn the yellow light way up.)


Most people have heard of REM sleep: it’s the good stuff. REM cycles are the deep sleep that really matters when you get a good nights rest. A full sleep cycle lasts about an hour and a half. When you take a quick 20 minute nap, you never get into deep sleep, so you wake up relatively easily and refreshed. But have you ever taken a two hour nap, where you wake up drooling and wonder what year it is? REM sleep.

Apps like Sleep Cycle use the microphone or accelerometer in your phone to monitor how much you move around or snore during the night. You set an alarm range, like 6:45AM – 7:15AM, if you usually wake up around 7AM. The Sleep Cycle app will set off the alarm when you are in the lightest possible part of your sleep pattern, which definitely makes waking up easier.

This app also comes with some awesome tracking statistics, like how your sleep quality is effected by the weather, your eating and exercise, or even the day of the week. Looking at this data is just plain fun, but it can help you make much better choices to get the best night’s sleep you can.


This strategy is meant to help you in a few ways. First, it eliminates the habit of late night browsing, or reaching back for your phone when you’ve tried to fall asleep for just five minutes and couldn’t do it. You’d be surprised how weird it feels at first, and how attached we are to that thing.

Second, you have to get out of bed in the morning to shut your alarm off. This can be enough for some people to get going, but many dedicated sleepers walk right back into bed to fall asleep. I can help with that in the next strategy. Also, since the jury is still out on how electronic, radio, and wi-fi signals might affect our bodies over the long term, it might be best not to sleep next to a hotspot night after night.

(By the way, pick your favorite song for your alarm! The Sleep Cycle app uses gentle noises that slowly get louder to wake you up gently as well. No sense in the first thing you hear being a loud, screeching beep, unless you really need it. That seems like a great way to make your flight-or-flight cortisol system the very first thing your body kick starts in the morning. That can’t be good. Let’s talk about that.)


Everyone has cortisol. It used to help us survive, when we were in desperate need of finding food or shelter. It kept us awake, alert, and on edge. Now, we have things like gridlocked traffic and employee evaluation meetings. It’s created a chronic cortisol epidemic.

The Cortisol Awakening Response (CAR) is the process of a sharp cortisol increase during the mornings of healthy adults. In this case, it is activated by the hippocampus (in charge of remembering your plans for the day) and not the amygdala (stress creator).

Waking up extremely early (4:30AM – 5:00AM) increases and prolongs the CAR. CAR is greater when you wake up in daylight than darkness, which may explain why it is so much easier to get out of bed when the sun is up. Your CAR is always higher during weekdays, especially when you have a heavy workload. So, it’s not necessarily a bad thing. But if you always have terrible mornings and leave the house with a bad attitude, try this exercise.

A. Stand with your feet separated a bit wider than your shoulders.

B. Exhale and slowly bend forward with your arms crossed around your chest. Squeeze your hands into fists to relieve tension in the spine. Feel the muscles that are stretching, and rate your exertion between 1-10. Don’t go past

C. Inhale and gradually “roll” upward to standing position, vertebrae by vertebrae. Raise your arms outward and upward in a V, even stretching your fingers to the sky. Fill your lungs to capacity, and hold your breath for a few moments in this position.

D. Exhale, and slowly let your arms drop while extended. Let out as much air as you possibly can while you repeat this process for at least a few minutes.

This exercise works for a few different reasons. The forward bend signals a relaxation response. Concentrating on your stretches and ratings inhibits your panicking amygdala. Stretching muscles oxygenates the blood, lowers body acidity, and releases tension.

There's also this 15-minute Spartan Monk morning routine on Conquer Today. It has 6 exercises that will wake you up, focus you in, and give you a huge burst of energy and calm before your day.


This is a common one, and all comes down to creating an unconscious habit. When we watch TV in bed or play on our phones, we are telling our brain this is a place to stay engaged. Keep your bed sacred, and use it only for sex and sleep.

If you must wind down for the day with a screen, use it on the couch. Grab a blanket and treat it like bed so you feel comfortable, but when you move to your actual bedroom put the phone away. If you can’t sleep after 15 minutes of trying, get back up to the couch and read a book for a bit. You’ll quickly feel tired.

Imagine getting into the front seat of your car every morning. Inserting the key into the ignition and backing out of the driveway becomes instinctual; your brain knows that the front seat means time to drive. Give your brain the same assistance when you hop into bed.


There are special lights that are used for this process that replicate the wavelength of sunlight, but those can be pretty expensive. Instead of starting with that, take a trip to your local big-box hardware store. Head over to the work lamp section, and you’ll find insanely-bright LED lamps that will flood your room with white light.

As soon as you wake up, roll over and turn one of these bad boys on. Do NOT look directly at it, especially not first thing in the morning! This type of instantaneous light can force you to get out of bed, and if you keep it on while you get ready you might feel more alert and awake when you leave the house.


This process works well when you place these items across the room with your phone. Before bed, fill a large 24oz glass or tumbler with ice cubes. Next to it, place a serving of protein power in it’s scoop.

When you wake up and stagger over to set off your alarm, dip your hands in the now-melted-but-still-cold water, and splash some on your face. Then, mix the water with the protein power and chug it down. This mixture is a near-perfect way for your digestive system to start functioning well in the morning, and the full glass of ice water really makes you feel like your gears are turning.


Most of us have had early morning events that throw us off, or sometimes get into a funky sleep schedule that can be hard to break. This means it’s time to break out the chemistry experiments.

We’ve all heard of melatonin, and if you are following all of the other steps it will definitely make you drowsy and ready for bed. However, some people report feeling too groggy in the morning after melatonin.

Head down to the drugstore and pick up generic caffeine pills and L-Theanine. It should cost you around $20 for a full month’s supply. As soon as you wake up, take one serving of each.

The caffeine is self explanatory. Wait 15 minutes, and you’ll experience a hit of energy and alertness more powerful than a cup of coffee (and if you take these pills, watch your coffee intake carefully. One more additional cup at maximum, and no caffeine after noon).

Finally, L-Theanine is a herbal supplement that pairs well with stimulants like this. It will extend your buzz and decrease any sort of crash you might experience. Even if you stick to just coffee, this is a good sidekick for anyone. The L-Theanine supplement is usually safe, but always consult your physician.

Remember, it does get better. Turn on your favorite music as you get ready, sit down to breakfast with your children, and lay out all the necessary items such as ironed clothing the night before.

u/chicklet2011 · 19 pointsr/LawSchool

I'm linking my favorite products!


Warning: if you hand write, you're going to be writing A LOT. I feel like I learn better when I do my class notes by hand, but I do have a hard time keeping up with the pace of the class. Each professor's teaching style has an impact on the way you take your notes. Be prepared to be flexible. (I hate that my note system is not uniform across my classes, but I know it is better that way)


If you like pen-and-paper:

These spiral notebooks have durable brightly colored covers that will survive your backpack, and it is a good idea to keep your notes organized by subject. The paper is thick enough that good highlighter (which I will also link) won't bleed through.

These erasable pens are great. They write very smoothly and erase cleanly--NOT at all like the crappy blue erasable pens of our youth. If you take notes in your textbook, these pens are the way to do it. I love them so much that I was having them shipped from Japan before they even hit the US market.

These standard pens are my go-to for anything that I don't want to be erasable. They write smoothly, and dry quickly enough that they don't smudge or transfer (I'm not sure for left-handed people though).

This mechanical pencil is what I use when I can't use pens. I like that it uses .5mm lead so that your writing can be small and precise. The barrel is large so it is comfortable to write with for extended periods of time (think blue-book exams).

These highlighters are the best. The colors are intentional mild/pastel so that they do not distract from other information on the page, but are easy to spot when you're looking for your highlights. They don't bleed through paper unless it is toilet-paper thin. When they do bleed through very very thin paper, the mild colors make it so that it is not a distraction.


If you like pen-and-paper, but are afraid of your notes being lost or stolen:

Rocketbook Everlast Notebook coordinates with an app that lets you create a digital copy of your notes. Scan a picture of the page, and the QR code on each page tells the app where to send a SEARCHABLE .pdf copy of your handwritten notes. It works with Google Drive, Evernote, Dropbox, OneNote, OneDrive, Trello, Slack, box, Google Photos, and email. Best of all, the notebook is completely reusable! (As long as you use writing tools from Pilot's Frixion line) Once you've filled the book, you wipe down the plastic pages with a hot damp towel and you can use the book again. I've filled and reused my Rocketbook 4 time so far, and the pages are still in great condition. I send my notes to Google Drive and OneNote, and I've never had any problems.

These highlighters can be used inside the Rocketbook, or on regular paper.


If you're thinking about going digital:

Your school might provide access to note taking programs. My school provides the full Office 365 Online suite, so I used OneNote. I was a pen-and-paper person in undergrad, and it pains me to switch to digital, but I just need that copy/paste functionality.


Textbook Supplies:

These sticky flags just came in the mail the other day, and I am loving them for use in my textbooks. I HATE writing in my textbooks, so instead I use these sticky flags to point at lines my professors emphasize in class.

These lined sticky notes are what I used when I just can't avoid adding notes to my casebooks. I avoid the "super-sticky" post-its because casebook pages are thin, and the super-sticky adhesive tears the pages when you reposition notes.

This book stand lives in my backpack now. When I started 1L year my back and neck hurt all the time from hunching over my casebooks for hours every day. This book stand makes it so the book comes to my face, instead of my face to the book. My posture is much better.

Reading glasses are something worth looking into and talking to your eye doctor about. After just one semester of staring at books and screens all day, I went from needing a mild prescription to see long-distance to needing full-on bifocals. I linked some glasses that will magnify your textbooks up close and and also filter out the blue light from screens. Talk to your doctor.

If you are assigned soft-cover reference materials, like The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, or Rule of Contract Law, you can take those books to FedEx or UPS, and they can spiral-bind them for you so that they lay flat and are easier to flip through. This can save you so much time on an exam.


Most importantly, have a planner.

You can get one from the store, you can print pages on line, you can leave yourself sticky-notes, or you can write your to-do list on your hands, whatever. No matter how you record it, it is crucial to have plan and stick to it. You're about to be hit with an overwhelming amount of conflicting obligations and opportunities, and there will always be something you ought to be working on. Plan and schedule your study time. Take time away to take care of yourself, and make a note to keep up with friends and/or family. You're never going to have "free time" in law school, but you can definitely have some flex time if you make a conscious effort to make room in your schedule.


Last: you don't need any of this stuff to be successful. Don't worry about what other people are doing, or even what the school tells you to do. If you feel like you do your personal best with a #2 pencil and loose leaf paper, then do that. Paying attention and managing your time wisely are far more important than having the perfect highlighters and the most organized planner.

u/ExplosiveLogorrhea · 2 pointsr/TBI

OMG you replied! I had actually done this then forgot LOL.

the truly funny thing was that my blue light reduction setting was already on 🤣🤣

so, for me, definitively the blue light reduction setting on the Samsung Galaxy S10e is negligible

it is less effective than:

turning down the brightness
putting on sunglasses to use phone
"blackout" glasses (I dunno the DARK sun ones)
blue light reduction glasses [mine are dark orange I dunno if the light yellow work as well - they tint the whole world orange and I kinda like it]

I can't wear glasses all the time though and - the blue light reduction is better than nothing.

OH - I can link them. Personal rec only, non expert :) purchased July 8 so the model should hopefully still be the same cuz these were only $20!!! (and I have a BIG head - man's hat size 7 7/8 and I can wear these longer than most glasses for pure physical comfort)


u/Twinewhale · 2 pointsr/ADHD

At first I completely disagreed with this but I did some more research and, while I don't think flux should be considered a complete replacement of the glasses, it does help more than I thought.

I've been using flux for quite some time, but always found the glasses to ultimately provide better filtering. If you have the right monitor then you can turn flux wayyyyy down for the best effect. My monitor at home does not bode well with the lower bluelight settings.

The other reason I would recommend glasses is because of the typical lighting in the workplace. Usually fluorescent at 5500K temperature (high blue light similar to daylight). If you rely on flux alone you should use somewhere in the range of 2300k for best effect, but combine that with the brighter lighting in the office and the contrast in light can be just as tiring on the eyes.


The best solution is to use both. Use Flux at a moderate temperature (I use ~3000k) with the glasses. This gives protection from all blue-light sources.

For those that really don't like the yellow part of the glasses, they also have non-tinted ones.

u/ijosh25 · 2 pointsr/fasting

> "(1) Supplement melatonin. Another user mentioned this and now it's sitting on my kitchen counter. My sleep is always garbage on a fast, so taking something to ease it is of primary interest to me. Cautiously optimistic."

I use these at night to increase my melatonin.


They are blue light filter glasses. I have other fancier ones (Swanwick) but I find that these cheaper ones cover your eyes better, so less blue light hits your eyes which should translate to higher melatonin levels :) One pair only costs $10. $10 for better sleep is totally worth it I think.

I heard about the blue light filter glasses from this book which also includes other ways to get better sleep.


u/SuperVillainPresiden · 2 pointsr/AskProgramming

Something I've found super helpful: I recently had to get glasses; not a strong prescription, but enough that I needed lens to drive. Anyway, I'm a programmer as well and you can get a blue light filter built into the lens material. http://www.allaboutvision.com/cvs/blue-light.htm (for info on blue light) And even if you don't need prescription glasses you can buy blue light filter glasses. Something like these: https://www.amazon.com/Blue-Light-Blocking-Glasses-Registered/dp/B010B5GUH0?th=1

Use the glasses anytime you are looking at a screen. Whether it's your phone, tv, or computer monitor. Blue light is part of what prevents you from sleeping well. Like if you look at your phone before bed, it can wake up your brain even though you are tired. Since I've had my glasses, I've fallen asleep faster and gotten better sleep. Like I used to wake up a few times a night, roll over, then fall back asleep. I usually don't wake up anymore...except in the morning when my alarm clock goes off.

TL;DR I'm nocturnal too, get blue light filter lens and it will help you sleep easier at night.

u/Statutory_Vape · 1 pointr/battlestations

Reposted from yesterday because I was ashamed to show the tower, but forgot that the rules make me.

Because I got this question yesterday, I'll go ahead and address it. I moved from retail to work for a good friend of my family. He owns a local business that's been around since the late 1930s, and was started by his grandfather. He's done well, and decided he wants to break into the online sales market, so I'm working with a web developer company to put together an e-commerce site, and once it's up, I'll be running it by myself until it's too much for just me, at which time I will hire people, and train and supervise them.

I know it’s nothing high performance, fast, or crazy expensive, but the desktop and monitors came with the job, so I can’t complain too much. Please ignore the mess of wiring underneath. It was set up when they gave me my office, so I didn’t get to run things like I would have. We will be relocating soon, and with that, I’ll make things look much cleaner. Hopefully, I’ll be upgrading soon to something not running Windows 7 Professional, and something not this, because this can barely even run photoshop without crashing the graphics card. Oh well!

u/dandv · 1 pointr/DSPD

I've looked through the top 3 items listed on that sleepxp site, and they're all quite inferior to others on Amazon:

  • Blue Light Blocking Glasses Inside| Blue Blockers by Eye Love only blocks 30% of blue light and are designed for all-day and outdoor wear, while OP mentioned working late
  • Cyxus have clear lenses and again, don't block as much as other brands, but perhaps would be easier to disguise by OP. However, Prospek are also clear and have better ratings.
  • Twilight has many reviewers mentioning they break easily

    I don't know how that list was compiled.

    Far better reviewed on Amazon are the Swannies, the Spectra479 (including these clip-ons), or these $20 fit-overs.
u/blayzeon · 1 pointr/ArtFundamentals

Not sure if I have the exact same issue but I do get eyestrain while drawing. I started consciously making sure I don't lean too close into my work while I draw and I also bought some "computer glasses" to help with bright lights and computer screens which also caused strain.

Taking short breaks from your work to either go outside and focus on stuff far away or close your eyes while you cover them with your palms also helps a lot. Not really a solution to the problem, but it relieves the pain and reverses any vision loss you might get from working.

Hope this helps, good luck.

There are actually plenty of pairs that fit over glasses. :)

(I own the last safety glasses style pair linked there and they fit perfectly fine over my reading glasses.)

u/SereneWisdom · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I have a couple of items that might be helpful. If you're into streaming games or use a mic (like a Yeti), then having a pop filter would be great as it will help get rid of that pesky "p" sound whenever you say a word that starts with a p. If streaming is not something you're into, then perhaps you're like me and spend a lot of time staring at the computer monitor. In that case, a pair of computer reading glasses can cut out some of the glare from the screen.


Of course, you can always add a Funko Pop of your favorite character to hang out with you when you're browsing the web or doing that important computer work. One of my personal favorites would be the one and only Loki. I mean, who wouldn't want the god of mischief by their side? I also realize that means I listed three and should just pick one to go by. If so, I'd have to go with the glasses as they would be helpful. But then again... Loki. Ugh. So hard to pick one.

u/capscorns · 2 pointsr/AskDocs

Obligatory not a doctor.

I've had this most of my life. What worked for is allowing myself regular breaks away from screens, and just getting up and moving around. Is it a home office you're working at? If so, maybe try a standing desk. You also could try using glasses that filter blue light (Link). My brother uses them for similar symptoms and eye strain, and they work for him. I also would consider drinking more water, it's simple but often overlooked.

Best of luck!

These are the pair I got, it’s definitely something I can’t swear by but I feel like it’s helped, and probably most confident of an answer anyone can give since the best way is to not stare at screens 24/7, but that’s talking nonsense

u/moonstone914 · 1 pointr/illnessfakersgonewild

She's talking about these items like she's familiar with them, "I love such and such!" But then she says she doesn't own anything on the list?

Sun Potion essentials kit—I love this brand though I can’t really afford them.

Blueblocker glasses— It really helped for me when I had the worst insomnia to invest in some blue light blocking eyewear.

Lord Jones CBD Bath Salts— A lot of CBD products don’t work for me, but somehow these do and I don’t even love baths that much!

Anti-radiation iPhone cases—Mine still looks like new and it’s been a year.

Berkey shower filter—This has been a huge game changer for me.

And so on. And then, at the end... "I should mention I don’t own many of these (hint hint!) but over the years I have researched them all and I can stand by them."

So which is it, PK? Do you already own most of the stuff on your list and you're just trying to get people to buy you more shit?

u/leepfroggie · 1 pointr/mturk

I use 'em. They work for me I think. I mean I think it's more than placebo effect because I tend to notice pretty quickly that my eyes are feeling strain when I forget to put them on.

I use these ones: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B078BKK9TV/ref=twister_B07CKP6CPZ?_encoding=UTF8&th=1

Edit: Something else to consider is screen brightness. I'd already had my brightness dimmed, and that's when my eye doctor recommended the glasses to filter blue light to help further reduce eye strain.

u/AntichristHunter · 1 pointr/Christianity

I don't know of any apps for iOS, but if you wear these dark amber blue-blockers, it's like F.lux for the whole world. It works great.

u/MrReedt · 1 pointr/visualsnow

Yes, I can recommend the pair I use. For me it seems that my visual snow got much better when I started using them. If I was to stop using them for a day or two my visual snow would come back stronger. A side note about the top comment, that program is not all you need. After using the program I realized there is no filter for blue light during the day lol.

Electronics are a big issue in not being able to shut down for the evening. So turn off the tv or put down your phone.

My husband has a lot of trouble sleeping, but has had good luck with blue blocker glasses. They block out the blue end of the color spectrum and promote melatonin production. They just look like orange sun glasses.

u/outdatedboat · 7 pointsr/gusjohnson

Just in case anyone wants to be as stylish as dad Gus, those glasses seem to be $10 on Amazon. Pretty standard blue light filtering glasses. I have the same style, but black and silver, instead of brown and gold. Keep dem eyes healthy. And look like a hot dad while you do it.

That's the most shill-sounding thing I've ever typed.

I agree I found some on amazon for a light deal not too ago for 11.99. Best purchase to date!

Edit: link to the ones I bought

This is a great post, thank you. I am in technology consulting now about 4 years out of my accident. Blue light has been a strain on my eyes and I’ve used blue light shielding glasses to help. You can get some with no prescription for about $10-$20 on Amazon. It has been very helpful. The pair I use: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0755GW72V?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

I know eye strain was mentioned many times, but this was a good TedX talk I watched about it a while ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HN30fO2I2aU. As for blue light reducing glasses, I'd go with https://www.spektrumglasses.com/ or https://gunnar.com/. I've used both and they are great; have been using https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01E0RR2FO/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 for over a year now.

I turn off all the lights in my office. Working in the dark is not harder on your eyes.

I use the Blue Light Filter or Night Mode in Windows 10 to remove the Blue Light Spectrum from my screens (This helps significantly)

I also use these from Amazon which is fantastic.

There are a special type of non-prescription glasses that can reduce eye strain by filtering out the amount of blue light that hits your eyes. I have a pair and it was the best thing I have ever done.

Link here!

These have helped quite a bit and reduced my overall eye strain. Give them a try since they are fairly cheap.

Like I said, don't buy "gaming glasses" buy something like http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00G0578C2/ref=mp_s_a_1_5?qid=1418247393&sr=8-5&pi=SL75

Same thing more than half off, all it is is yellow tinting and it does work, but F.lux does the same thing and is free, it also saves your dignity from ugly glasses

What you need are gaming glasses. They reduce eye strain while looking at the computer screen so you can go hours without harming your eyes. So worth it, and you'll save yourself a few hundred bucks.


u/Gooner1320 · 1 pointr/smashbros

Bought those computer glasses and it really helped. I really liked these ones because they dont have much of a yellow tint and instead look like regular glasses.

I bought a pair of these and definitely notice an improvement in sleep. Cyxus Blue Light Filter Computer... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01GNO3G48?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

Get some gunnars or glasses similar to gunnars. I got a pair from gamma ray essentials and they've helped a lot with my headaches. I only wear them when plying games. Also they make everything look better in the game

Better to invest in a pair of computer glasses like these. Flux doesn't work on all systems and ruins some screens.

u/Thepunk28 · 1 pointr/gaming

Apparently, those glasses have gotten two 5-star reviews on amazon!


u/argus2968 · 1 pointr/gaming

No reason to spend tons of money on a pair. Any yellow/amber tinted ones on amazon work.

I wear these during the day because my desk is in front of a huge window.


u/ObsessionObsessor · 1 pointr/worldnews

I think you should start wearing these glasses when working on a computer and get some sleep.

Assuming a screen/monitor light issue.




Glasses: Gamma Ray Blue Light Blocking Glasses



This is what I use and now I never had eye strain anymore. I switch between the software and glasses depending on situations. When I wear contacts I use the glasses when f.lux stops working (it stops working for me at some point). Then the gamma glasses is just that... every time I use it zero eye strain.
