How We Got Here
Many people struggle to sleep easily at night. Living with chronic illness, we are no exception.
In 2020 we were suddenly stuck inside with lots of time to confront our problems. With Dan unable to continue personal training and Grace's corporate job moving online, we were forced to focus on something we had ALWAYS struggled with: Sleep.
You'd think that with no commute and less outings that we could sleep in longer and deeper, right? Well... we were wrong.
Here's the thing: with everything going virtual we worked more online than ever. More hours spent on Zoom calls, FaceTime and Netflix marathons.
Through dedicated research we learned that the blue light from our screens (think phones, laptops, TV) caused chronic inflammation behind our eyes leading to headaches and stopped our brain's natural melatonin production... cue insomnia.
Short on quality options, we took matters into our own hands; design a pair of Canadian blue light glasses that worked to cut down headaches, boost melatonin and help get a better night's sleep naturally.
Through using the glasses, we noticed a dramatic increase in both our Deep and REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, along with the relief of falling asleep easier and staying asleep throughout the night.
To put it simply, our sleep improved almost instantly. The SocialLight glasses helped us last the long days working online, becoming our go-to when a headache creeped up.
Simply wearing these blue light glasses, we spent less time stressing over headaches and sleep schedules and more on life. What started as a search for relief turned into a practical tool to share with our friends and family... and now you.
We know first-hand just how frustrating it is to have health hold you back, so we work to create practical tools for a higher quality of life.
