Night Swannies are an easy and natural solution for your sleep problems

An Easy and Natural Solution For Your Sleep Problems

by | Jun 13, 2019 | Swannies Stories

When Co-Founders and brothers, James and Tristan Swanwick, first heard about the serious harmful effects of blue light, a deep concern overwhelmed them.

The thought that their everyday electronics could potentially be a danger to their health was enough reason to dig a little deeper.

The critical clue that left us sleepless

Before the arrival of artificial lighting, the sun was the major source of lighting, and people spent their evenings in relative darkness. Now, our evenings are illuminated, and we take our effortless access to digital devices for granted.

We discovered that our sleep may be paying a price for basking in all the blue light at night.

As the sun disappears, your body goes into a mode of sleep preparation. Ideally, blue light exposure should be limited as much as possible at night to ensure a healthy sleep-wake cycle. Unfortunately, aligning ourselves naturally is somewhat challenging in the digital age, especially if you’re prone to digital separation anxiety.

Research reveals that artificial blue light suppresses the secretion of melatonin, a hormone that influences circadian rhythms. Blue light wavelengths, which are beneficial during daylight hours, seem to be the most disruptive at night.

In other words, our beloved electronics housing all our favorite apps, tools, TV shows, and games, keep us awake at night. Studies link working the night shift and exposure to light at night to several types of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.

If that made you switch off right away, I don’t blame you for it. Heck, I salute you for it! But if you’re still with me, I promise reading to the end will be worthwhile.

These findings inspired the Swanwick brothers to find a solution faster than ASAP.

A highly effective solution surfaced

Encouraged by the lack of good looking blue light protection glasses, and all the data that confirms blue light to be a true sleep destroyer, we launched our first and now favored Classic Night Swannies.

We truly couldn’t have been happier with the results. Our initial goal to help people sleep better had been a huge success.

Don’t take my word for it though, see for yourself what people wrote about our blue light blocking glasses:

5-star rating

I heard about Swannies from a few podcasts and was curious. I track a lot of data (mostly using a Whoop fitness band). After about two weeks worth of use, my deep sleep has increased anywhere from 2-3 fold a night. I would recommend these to anyone who spends a significant amount of time in front of a screen, particularly if you work into the late hours. I was skeptical – but the data speaks for itself. I’m sleeping better than I have in a long time.

Eye strain gone!
I have worn these glasses for two weeks now and noticed the eye strain relief immediately. Now I can’t look at the computer without them. I have also noticed an improvement in my deep sleep number when I wear these 3 hours prior to bed. Thank you, Swanwick!!

Very cool glasses!!
I feel awesome when I use them at night… I can sleep way better, and my eyes feel much more rested… To be honest, the difference when I don’t use them is HUGE!!

IMPORTANT: It’s normal that you feel a little bit weird when you have the glasses on and you look in the mirror 🙂 After you get over that and you realize that nobody cares, it’s just wonderful!

Stylish and epically effective!
As a long-time bio-hacker, I’ve known about blue blockers for a while but never pulled the trigger (as most frames are a bit too corny looking!) since I’ve been pregnant, I’ve been waking up, up to 8 times per night with insomnia-like symptoms. Ordered these babies online and wore them for 2 hours before bed and slept like a baby, only waking up once the first night from wearing them. The second night I slept all the way through!

Definitely recommend. Even if you are mindful about not doing screen time an hour before bed, the normal lighting inside and outside your home is enough to keep you up! Helped me a ton! And they look great 😉

More restful sleep
Was a little weary at first. Holy c$@p! I put them on just as the sun is setting, and I am so tired come bedtime. And I contribute this to having a much more restful sleep. I have a full-time job, young kids, and a side-hustle, so needless to say, the few hours I do sleep, they need to be as restful as possible. Very happy with my purchase!

We took it one step further…

Our SleepScore Labs study validates how Swannies help you sleep better. Swannies were tested on participants that experienced sleep problems. Overall, the study found that Swannies blue light blocking glasses can improve sleep, which is supported by both self-report and objective sleep data collected using SleepScore technology by ResMed.

We are delighted with the fact that participants felt Swannies enhanced different aspects of their sleep and they achieved deep sleep.

Deep sleep is the stage we want everyone to reach. The restorative stage that makes us feel magical in the morning, and zesty the rest of the day.

Is that something you’re aiming towards?

Yes, I want restorative sleep!

Now that you know how to protect your eyes at night, you should know how to do the same during the day.
