A Note from Lisa
“How many times in recent days have you had a truly solid night’s sleep? Sleep is critical to coping with absolutely every element of our lives. We have had SO many of you reach out to us for help regarding your challenges with sleep – we hear you!
Continuous disruption to sleep patterns will cause hormonal imbalance, mood disorders, even gastrointestinal problems and a decreased libido. It is really difficult to lose weight and maintain an active lifestyle without a natural circadian sleep rhythm in place, and solid sleep within a 24-hour period.
Sleep deprivation causes the body to produce excess adrenaline and the stress hormone cortisol. Cortisol is catabolic, which means it breaks down muscle and accelerates bone loss, but also increases fat storage.
Compounding the hormonal problems linked to a lack of sleep is a double-whammy of lowered leptin levels and a rise in ghrelin. A decrease in leptin levels slows down various metabolic processes and increases hunger, which means sleep deprived people are more likely to overeat.
With less energy, our bodies crave sugar and processed carbs because we want an easily accessible energy source. We also tend to rely on stimulants like caffeine to get us through the day.
Adequate sleep also helps to restore and regenerate the nervous and immune systems. That's why there has never been a more important time to proactively address our sleep issues. As the world lives through a global pandemic, every extra hour of sleep can help to strengthen your immune system and can aid your recovery from illness.
I’ve put together our Sleep Kits, using tried and tested sleep solutions, each selected to address and counter one of the many reasons that we aren’t sleeping well.
Goodnight, sleep tight!” – Lisa

Emits enough light to complete basic tasks without having to switch bright room lights on. Sudden bright light disrupts sleep.
The blocking out of blue light is the most important part of the pre-sleep process. Wear these shades for the allocated time before bed, to prepare for your first phase of sleep
SleepSpec OverShades OR SleepSpec Shades with Optical Insert
Filtering out the type of light that keeps you awake is essential to the natural sleep process. If you are dependent on wearing glasses for most tasks, you can use these extra-large over shades. You simply slip them over your normal glasses. Alternatively, the shades with optical inserts allow you to add scripted lenses.
When you wake up in the middle of the night, avoid all blue light. Use the spotlight to navigate in the dark. Ideal for checking on your children without waking them up.
