#254: Ending Sleep Struggles with Shawn Stevenson

Sleep Smarter

Eat Smarter



The podcast is sponsored by BLUblox. I have become so passionate about light optimization recently, and filtering out computer light and blue light entirely after the sun sets. I wasn’t doing anything about this until about a year ago, and I was experiencing eye strain, migraines, and an unexplained wired and tired feeling, especially at night. Now I wear BLUblox computer filter glasses anytime I’m looking at screens, and BLUblox sleep lenses at night, and I haven’t experienced symptoms since.

BLUblox was created because they saw the need for a product that was exactly in line with the peer reviewed academic literature. There are a lot of cheaply made lenses out there that don’t actually block all the blue and green light. Don’t waste your time on that, go to, and use the code WELLFED for 15% off.

Flying Embers

Flying Embers is a better-for-you alcohol brand that brews hard kombucha and probiotic powered hard seltzer. All of their products are 0 sugar, 0 carbs, USDA certified organic, gluten-free, and brewed with live probiotics and adaptogens.

Their products are artfully crafted with a dry fermentation process, which gives the hard kombucha a perfectly balanced natural sweetness and it tastes amazing.

Flying Embers was founded during the Thomas Fires in Southern California in 2017, where their R&D lab, brewery and home almost burned down and was saved by first responders…because of that they named their brand after it and donate a portion of every purchase to first responders nationwide.
