Mental Performance boost
Once in a blue moon creativity isn’t going to cut it. Sometimes you need mental performance NOW. Creativity, motivation, deep learning. We have found Qualia to give us a mental boost before a presentation, help us learn new information quickly, and to easily remember information during critical times. Qualia is a nootropic, which means it boosts brain function. Coffee does this too, and so does tea. Both contain nootropics. Caffeine in the case of coffee and L-theanine in the case of green tea. Qualia contains both of these and a host of other brain boosting ingredients, neuro-vitamins and minerals, and adaptogenic herbs. Best brain boost designed so all the component work better together than apart. Qualia MIND and Qualia FOCUS are available with a discount using code PRIMALMIND.
BETTER SLEEP, BETTER HEALTH
Even if you like blue, stop seeing it at night. As a Modern human you now spend over 90% of your time indoors. Well, when the sun sets, you cannot see blue light. It never would have happened in all of human history. Firelight and moonlight are all you could see at night except darkness. They have little to no blue light. Your body is designed in a way that when you see blue all sorts of physiological things happen that are supposed to happen during the day. When these happen to you at night, bad things occur. Light at night is associated with cancer, and certainly can cause macular degeneration and is associated with obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. The benefits of blocking blue light, especially at night are well known, but finding a pair of blue blockers that make you look amazing is a challenge. Until now. Time tested, spouse approved.

Humans, like all other animals are meant to walk barefoot. Put shoes on a dog and it’ll probably get knee problems, assuming you could keep shoes on the dog. When you put your own feet into shoes it’s like wearing a cast. Your foot muscles shrivel up and you take on an unnatural gait. This probably leads to foot, knee, and hip pain because the body was not designed to wear these casts. Barefoot shoes solve a real problem. You wearing shoes at work is good for you if you want a job long term and don’t work as a wilderness guide. Barefoot shoes are made for work, sports, and everyday life and look amazing all while allowing your body to take its natural shape.

APPROPRIATE LIGHT AFTER SUNSET
Artificial, alien light from LEDs and CFLs is the worst lighting you could use in your home.
Start with going back to incandescent. Even though they use more energy than LEDs, they are much superior from a health standpoint. Incandescent aren’t perfect, as they still have too much blue, but far less than typical LEDs and all CFLs.
Red LED Options - Even Incandescent can sometimes be too much, dropping our melatonin by 40%!
But red light at night, or candlelight, tells our body that it's night and allows us to function optimally.
This red light, off Amazon works great in a typical light fixture and includes a healing wavelength of red light that people use for healing.
I have one in my bathroom.
In our kitchen we have track lights, and they use this special bulb that you can find in red.
Here's a low to no flicker red LED to replace standard bulbs
Candles – always a good option is to stick with tried and true – FIRE. Try these candles at night for the best way to light up the night.
RED LIGHT AT NIGHT HEALS TOO
Gembared is hands down the most affordable red light therapy on the market. Red light therapy is helpful to overcome too much tech and artificial lights during the day. We use ours for a light at night in our dining room and bedroom. Code SLEEP gets you a huge discount.

MAKE IT DARK
The absolute best light after sunset is no light! And sometimes, when everyone is in bed, I turn out all the lights. Then I have to run to another room to get something ready for the next day. Thank goodness I have this red reading light to light my way. It won't stop my melatonin production or harm my health after dark. They’re coming soon.
Flashlight – Hunting, camping, travel, or just running to your bathroom at night won’t ruin your melatonin with these red flashlights.

We've all heard the benefits of sauna. Longer life, increased VO2max, increased growth hormone and more. Suana is well studied for many health and healing benefits. Many home saunas on the market have high EMF from all the electronics and heaters in the units. Saunaspace is the only sauna designed specifically to eliminated EMF from the sauna and even makes a version that blocks EMF coming into the sauna from outside! Of course, it also still functions like a sauna, and uses red lights to heat, so you get the added benefit if extra red light to heal.

LET THE LIGHT IN
In case you haven't figured it out we're HUGE believers in natural sunlight and it's ability to heal. So when we found a company that makes clothing to let you be naked without being naked, we had to pick up some shorts and t shirts. Cool Tan and Kiniki make men's and women's tan through swimsuits and shirts. You can wear clothes and still get sun in places it doesn't usually shine. Our bodies really do need sunlight …everywhere!
GET YOUR GROUND ON
Grounding has been shown to reduce inflammation. Grounding in the summer is easy, just stand barefoot on the earth. In the winter it’s too cold and we usually avoid standing barefoot. Instead, try these grounding straps. You just slip them onto any shoe or boot and tuck the strap into your sock. Now you can ground while wearing shoes.
