8:05 am
went up and that made us sleepy. now we're surrounded by artificial light and prevents that from rising and in particular, one component of light, blue light is really good at suppressing that melatonin rise and our electronic devices put out a ton of blue light. >> apple has this idea to move from blue to yellow. >> will it make a big difference. >> if you're on your device all the time and that makes up a big component of blue light, maybe it could make a difference but we get it from all the lights around our home, compact, fluorescent bulbs, l.e.d. bulbs put out a ton of light. there are these orange glasses that will filter out all the blue light. >> it's the bono look. i don't think i'd like to watch my shows this way but they do all kinds of things to cut down on that. >> what other kinds of things. >> in addition to orange glass, different apps can you get for your phone whether it's android or apple that will slowly decrease the amount of light
8:06 am
in terms of sleep it's not just about that. you need to look at trying to get a routine in before bed so you're easing into your sleep. you want to look at avoiding stimulant, no caffeine after the middle of the day. make your bedroom dark. if your clock puts out anything other than a red light put a filter on it or get a different color off the clock and separate yourself from electronics at least two hours before going to bed. >> good luck with that but it's the right idea. >> it's hard to do. >> rich besser, thanks very much. over to amy. i wonder what seeing a lot of green will do for you because a lot of people are waking up millionaires this morning including those three lucky winners who struck the jackpot in last night's powerball. their lives are about to change. we heard some horror stories about winners ending up broke but there are incredible success stories and t.j. holmes is here with that. hey, t.j. >> yeah, this is the cash we've been showing this morning. what $1.5 billion generally
8:07 am
hard to think somebody could burn through all this money but there are some statistics out there that would tell you that 70% of jackpot winners lose it all within five years but success story, people find a way to hold on to their cash by finding a way to give it away. sure, we all dream about holding that billion dollar winning ticket. some of us might do things like this. rent out the most expensive hotel suite in north america. the ty warner penthouse with your own butler and rolls-royce but that could make your money disappear fast. the secrets of success, save and enrich the lives of others. like the loci family from des moines, iowa. >> this couple used a portion of their $202 million jackpot to build a new athletic field at their local high school? we wanted to benefit our community and our church. >> reporter: and knoxville's
8:08 am
donated it to theater and charity organizations. sandra hayes was living on less than $26,000 a year as a st. louis social worker when she hit it big winning a $224 million powerball jackpot along with her co-workers in 2006. >> when i really realized that i won the lottery, i became a little nervous. >> reporter: the single mother of three decided to retire, pay off her debt and put the rest into savings. >> i live on a budget and i'm disciplined. >> reporter: hayes says she treats her families to nice vacations but hasn't forgotten to pay it forward. >> there have been times in my life i did not have enough money to buy grocery, food pantry, i didn't forget about them. >> reporter: and still splurges on the occasional powerball ticket. >> do i still play it? yes, i'm going to take my chance and see will lightning strike twice? >> it's hard to imagine someone going through this much money.
8:09 am
let me give you a little math. these three winners will end up splitting about 990 million in cash. the lump sum. after taxes for each of them, they're going to take home about $200 million. hopefully they don't burn through this any time soon. >> someone who didn't do it. loyal davis won a $207 million jackpot and you were watching this remembering. reliving what that was like for you seven years ago. >> yes, it was a wonderful experience. it was like a dream come true in a way. a dream. it's -- how do i say this? they're in for the ride of their life. >> it's a ride all right. how is your life right now? >> it's good. i think we're down to earth. i haven't changed anything that i can think of or know of. >> has money changed you in any way. >> i don't think so. you can ask people and friends and stuff. they'll say no. >> how did you spend the money? >> spend the money?
8:10 am
bought really that was something -- i never owned a brand-new vehicle so i bought a cadillac escalade. >> what did you do with the rest of the money. >> basically invested it. went to, you know, seen a couple of different financial advisers and found one we like and invest the money and you can live off the interest. >> you live off the interest. >> you went back to work initially. >> i worked for six years afterwards. >> why did you do that? a lot would say you ain't seeing me anymore. >> you can say what you want. but you won't know until you win it. >> all right. and you had a situation where some co-workers claimed that they should have also been a part of that pool. that had to be an incredibly difficult situation right when you're celebrating now you're dealing with a lawsuit. >> yes, it was kind of odd. it's like, i mean, hey, you know, the thing is there the envelope is there. everybody knows you put your name on it and put your dollar. >> getting the names is important. quick tip for the winners today? >> make sure you put your name on the envelope and put your dollar in. >> and live off the interest. i like that.
8:11 am
