Are you not getting enough sleep? Eye masks might be the answer. Eyes have always been thought of as windows to the soul. Would you leave your soul out “there” unprotected from the ravages of daily life? We hope not because the stats on sleep are in and it’s not a pretty picture. A huge percentage of Americans are seriously sleep deprived. City dwellers never get to enjoy real darkness (the optimal state for deep sleep) and city mice and country mice alike are spending way too much time (like 40% of waking hours) in the damaging blue light of our screens that disturb our sleep, our dreams, our precious memories, our ability to process information, even after we’ve logged off for the night.
To sleep the coveted, deep kind of luxurious sleep one should banish even the tiniest bit of light. These sleep masks will cover your eyes with softness and secrecy and a soupcon of humor. Or you could always take a page out of the Gypsy handbook and cover your baby blues with a set of gold coins, but with the price of gold, our approach might be more reliable, a bit little softer on the eyes and the bank account, too.
