What are you staring at?
Everybody hits the wall. 40+ hours staring at a screen will turn you into a zombie. Computer Eyes is the antidote. It starts with bilberry leaf; used in WWII by Air Force pilots flying night missions. It can be taken routinely to strengthen vision whether you’re suffering from eyestrains, night blindness, and yes - computer eyes. I paired it with some brain food. Gotu kola, an Ayurvedic brain herb, is similar to ginkgo biloba in that they improve circulation of oxygen to the brain to improve focus & memory.
Vinyl Pairing: The Pentangle - Sweet Child (1968)
British-folk-rock group known for pioneering the acoustic folk-jazz sound of the 1960's (think Fairport Convention). The band was comprised of virtuoso guitarists, Bert Jansch and John Renbourn, Danny Thompson on double bass, and the angelic voice of Jacqui McShee. They played traditional songs along with originals, sometimes with weird tuning, but usually intricate and hard plucking.
