See your computer or tablet in a new light

Just got my new Gunnar glasses – presecription lens this time. They are amazing. Definitely make working on the computer so much better and easier on the eyes. And the look fantastic. If you spend more than a few hours a day in front of a big screen, you should take care of your eyes and see better by getting yourself some.

Thanks to Andrea over at Gunnar for looking after me. Love them!

By renewing regularly, it’s possible to get more done, in less time, at a higher level of quality, more sustainably. When we’re less fatigued, we’re not only less prey to negative emotions, we’re also more likely to access the positive ones we need to feel to perform at our best.
