This isn't medical advice!

Melatonin really helps me.

I haven't fully rested in weeks and I took one 3mg dose last night and feel so much better.

I hope this regulates my sleep a bit too.

Now back to the light glasses. :)

@emacsen having sleep issues myself, I heard that you should be careful with these as they can affect your circadean rhythm in ways that do no help solve the sleep issues, and can worsen them in some occasions. We have some popular medicins you can buy anywhere without doctor's recipe that contain melatonin.

@emacsen

Melatonin has been important for me too

I added a few lamps last winter

Because exposure to sunlight also stabilizes the circadian cycle

More recently l'm reading before going to bed instead of using digital devices

@emacsen Avoid blue light in the last couple of hours before sleep.

In particular: avoid cell phones and tablets.

Note: I'm not a doctor. Just a heavy consumer of popular science (and probably cherry-picking the stuff I like...)

@emacsen I just bought a hug sleep and its been soooo nice to sleep in. If you are claustrophobic, it may not be for you. But it calms me down soooo much.
