If marketers had their way we would all be sitting in front of a screen with a cold can of beer in our hands. This lifestyle most of us accept as the norm can be devastating to our health. The blue light emitted from computer screens and cell phones interrupt our natural sleep patterns. Proper sleep is one of the big three imperatives for better health. Consuming alcohol causes depression, dehydration and reduces our motor functions. So why do we continue to abuse our bodies?


Our guest, James Swanwick, challenges us to consider how our lives can be better without alcohol and shows us how to get better sleep with his blue light reducing, Swannies. He practices what he preaches. He created the video based, 30-Day No Alcohol Challenge to help people reduce the amount of alcohol they consume by keeping them accountable through an online support network. He is also the creator of Swannies, the stylish glasses which if worn 90-min before sleeping, support your natural sleep patterns.
