GE Align PM – drugs don’t have to be your first choice for better sleep


The world is buzzing around us at the speed of light. We can’t help but lose a little sleep here and there what with all the chores, errands, and looming deadlines about. If we’re lucky, we get to have enough of a routine that we can actually go to bed and wake up around the same time, but whether that’s an actual daytime-work, nighttime-sleep schedule is up to your line of work.

If you have problems sleeping because your body clock is constantly being tossed around like a rag doll, you might feel like reaching for the sleeping pills. Instead of going for the bottle, why not reach for a bulb? The GE Align PM is a light bulb that will help your brain know when it’s time for sleep by emitting a soft yellow (low-blue) glow instead of a bright blue light that your mind associates with day time, and therefore, being awake.

This is a light that you screw into your bedside lamp 30 minutes before bed, or just make it your new bedside lamp bulb. The light will help your body know that it’s time for snoozing so you don’t toss and turn when you’re trying to wind down and sleep. This is a $19.99 bulb, and it can be dimmed for those that have the appropriate switch. If you sleep during the day, you’ll want to make sure you have blackout curtains to prevent any stray blue light coming in and ruining the work this bulb will be trying to do.
