Confession time: I love being busy. In my opinion, there’s nothing more fulfilling than having a to-do list full of assignments, brainstorming sessions, and personal chores. With some strategy and time-saving hacks, you can accomplish anything on your to-do list. The only thing that can foil your busy schedule? A splitting headache.

Trust me, I should know. As a freelance journalist, I spend my days writing stories, conducting interviews, and answering a lot of emails. But since I spend most of my time in front of a computer, I usually end my days with a splitting headache. More often than not, my headaches are so severe that I can barely think, which can seriously stunt my productivity.

While I rely on my trusty ice masks to alleviate any tension after a long, busy day, I hadn’t found anything that actually prevents my string of headaches. Well, until I added Peeper’s blue light-fighting glasses to my Amazon cart, that is. 

I’ll be the first one to admit I didn’t understand the hype around blue light-blocking glasses. As someone with great vision, I’ve never needed to wear glasses. So the mere thought of wearing a pair without a prescription seemed, well, forced. If I’m being totally honest, I thought it was glamorizing having less-than-ideal vision. But my growing curiosity got the best of me and I ended up purchasing Peepers' Bravado glasses. 

Blue light glasses are designed to have special filters that block or absorb those harsh rays. In other words, it makes all that time you spend staring at the screen a little more manageable.

So how do they work? You see, screens emit blue light waves that can keep you up at night—or, in my case, give you a splitting headache. Blue light glasses are designed to have special filters that block or absorb those harsh rays. In other words, it makes all that time you spend staring at the screen a little more manageable.  

It’s been a few weeks since I hopped on the blue light bandwagon and I can safely say Peeper’s glasses have turned this skeptic into a believer. Not only does wearing my glasses help put me in the zone, but they also work. In fact, my headaches have become less frequent ever since I slipped these frames on. Instead of spending my afternoons and evenings tending to a beast of a headache, I can actually focus on being as productive as possible.

Best of all? These glasses are super affordable. Peepers has a handful of styles and magnification strengths available on Amazon—all available for $25. When I think about how helpful these glasses have already been, I can confidently say this is the best $25 I’ve spent in a while. After all, a productive, headache-free day is priceless.
