Despite the diversities in our personalities and beliefs as individuals, we still have one thing in common – we all love to sleep. After a long day at work or at school, or even at home, it feels extremely great to lie down in our own beds and drift away into a sweet slumber.
For most of us, we consider our bedrooms as our sanctuary – a place where we can relax and be at peace. There are even times that we find it hard to get ourselves up in the morning. Just like in relationships, breakups are terrible and often times, that’s how we feel when morning comes (sad, but true).
However, not all of us are lucky enough to get enough sleep every day. There are other people who are experiencing sleep difficulties and some can’t even get at least five hours of sleep which is not good for our health. Sleep deprivation or less sleep can cause various medical conditions that could be life-threatening.
On the other hand, recent studies and researches revealed a range of great sleeping hacks and foods that could help achieve better quality sleep. Aside from that, given the upsurge of technology, few products have been developed as sleeping solutions and here are six of them.
Chillow is a pillow which helps you keep cool throughout the day and night and can be used with your existing pillow to help you get a better quality of sleep. All you have to do is activate it when you’re ready to go to sleep, and the pillow will drop its temperature ever so slightly to reach a cool relaxation level to help you fall asleep.
Sound Oasis Sound Therapy Pillow
This is another pillow for you to choose. Though it may not have that cooling sensation, yet it provides soothing music which can work its magic on helping you fall asleep. It has two speakers built inside that will play your favorite music at a low level to help you drift off into a deep slumber. Since sleeping with headphones or earbuds is so uncomfortable, you can have this one instead.
Yes, you might already be using your eye mask when you sleep but this one is way too different. Sleep Mask is a nifty solution by Tempur-Pedic which provides you with total darkness and a comfortable fit to make sleep perfect. This mask molds perfectly to your face which is why you can completely see nothing. Aside from the comfort it provides, it is also cool.
Cooling gels take memory foams to another level. You just have to add the gel to the memory foam base in both mattress and pillows, then voila! You have your cool and relaxing bed in no time. It is perfect to use at this time of year because the weather is warm even during at night. So, you can use this to refresh your bed for a better and sound sleep.
Good Night Light
Recent studies show that light plays a crucial role in sleeping which is why Good Night Light has been developed. Originally, it was made for NASA astronauts on the International Space Station. Good Night is a LED light bulb which lets melatonin do its thing by using half of the blue light in normal bulbs. Melatonin is an essential chemical which helps regulate sleep and wake up cycles.
White Noise App
After lying in bed at night, you don’t want to be disturbed by random noises, right? So, to better catch some sleep, you can use the White Noise App. It lets you control your room’s ambient sounds and use them to drown out everything else including noise. You can choose from 400 looping sounds to listen to and bring you some peace while you drift into dreamland.
In contrast to beliefs that technology such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops are burdened in getting enough sleep at night, these bedtime innovation must-haves are very helpful. Technology, when used in the right way could be very beneficial to us all.
Combine it with your personal comfort bed, then you have the perfect formula to an improved quality of sleep. In addition, it could also help you achieve a sound slumber that could help you be healthier and have more energy to jump off the bed every morning. Considering the use of these technologies would be great. So, think about it and be on your to dreamland!
