Sleep Mask 24

Many people I​ know can fall asleep in​ the middle of​ a​ well lit room with the television going .​
I​ don’t know how they do it .​
I​ have to​ have darkness, and I​ have to​ have the sound of​ a​ fan going .​
If the television is​ on, my mind struggles to​ stay awake to​ see what will happen next .​
It’s simply impossible for me to​ fall asleep that way, and to​ sleep well .​
a​ fan is​ great because it​ masks noises that might wake me up .​
Having darkness is​ often a​ problem, so that is​ why I​ use a​ sleep mask.
When I​ first thought I​ might like to​ have a​ sleep mask, I​ had a​ harder time finding one than I​ thought I​ would .​
There was no such thing as​ the Internet then (at least in​ my house), and if​ there had been, my search would have been easy .​
You can find them all over the Internet now, and you can usually be very choosy about what you want to​ get because there are so many out there .​
When I​ was looking for one, I​ had to​ find one in​ the stores .​
I​ thought they would be common, but for some reason, I​ could not find one.
The first sleep mask that I​ got was made of​ gel and you could see right through it .​
I​ had told my mom that I​ was looking for one, and I​ guess she thought that any one would do .​
This type of​ sleep mask is​ not meant to​ keep the light out, but rather, to​ help with dark circles under the eyes .​
The gel should go into the refrigerator (or freezer) to​ get cold, and that cold will then help keep the black circles from forming, or​ will help them go away .​
She meant well, but it​ was not what I​ was looking for.
I finally found one that was mean to​ shield the eyes, but it​ did not fit on my head very well .​
It was more for looks than anything, and really didn’t fit like it​ was made for the real purpose for which they are intended .​
I​ am guessing it​ was more of​ a​ fun gift item than something made to​ ensure the quality of​ sleep .​
When you buy a​ sleep mask, the tie behind the head should not pinch, but might a​ little .​
You can get used to​ that within a​ few nights .​
More importantly, it​ should cover adequately so that no light can sneak in​ to​ interrupt your sleep if​ that is​ what you need to​ rest well .​
Luckily, they are not that expensive, and are much easier to​ find now, at​ least for me .​
That means if​ one sleep mask does not work, buying another to​ try is​ not that much of​ a​ trial or​ an​ expense.
