Essential Oils are not the only tool…
Before we get started, I want it clear essential oils are not the only tool
Chalene Johnson and Shawn Stevenson discuss lifestyle changes to help with better sleep on Katch. I've already implemented some of these changes and saw results the first night. They talk about blue light around 17:30 and Dopamine around 22:00. So much good info throughout!
These are the orange glasses I ordered, the book I pre-ordered (edited to say I got it read it cover to cover, and learned so much!!), and the tinted screen I got for my iPhone. Also download F.lux to your desktop and Twilight app to your Android. This lamp can be adjusted from blue light (day) or amber light for evening.
Also listen to this: Why Great Sleep is the Ultimate Fat Burner.
