Since I am having quite some sensory issues, which become worse when I don’t sleep properly, it is very important to get a good night of sleep.
Sleeping can be quite a challenge, especially when living in a big city (I live in the capital of my country), which never really sleeps. Although I do no live in the busiest part of the city (thank god!), I do live in a part of our country where there is a lot of light pollution. It never gets really dark here, which is a real pity… and, a sensory input I would rather get rid of.
So I started looking for a good, portable solution. A sleep mask seemed to be the solution, but most sleep masks are just horrible: they put pressure on your eyes and replace your original problem (light) with a new one (pressure).
After doing some online research, I found a sleep mask that had a lot of positive reviews, the sleep mask of Tempur. I decided to buy one, desperate for some ‘darkness’ in my life. 🙂
I must say, it worked out well. I absolutely love this sleep mask. It is soft, really blocks out light, and does not put any pressure on my eyes. I sleep with it every night now, without pulling it off while I am sleeping.
I can also recommend using it when you need some time to calm the senses after being sensory overloaded (just lie down on your bed with the mask on) or when having a migraine (ditto)!
