For many of us, sleep is hard to come by. We have a lot of work, stress, and family commitments that mean we find it hard to get the recommended 7 hours of sleep per night. In general terms, sleep is essential for the body’s repair, and for us to feel ready to go in the morning. To help you get the perfect night’s sleep, we have researched some gadgets that you can incorporate into your bedtime routine.
This gadget is a multifunctional pillow that does much more than provide you with comfort. It allows you to connect a device such as a phone through Bluetooth so that you listen to music or a podcast to help you fall asleep. The Sound Asleep Pillow can also track and monitor your sleep, and even keep an eye on your snoring. Furthermore, the device is very affordable, as you can purchase it for under £20. You don’t need to worry about the noise because you can adjust the volume, and the speaker is safely hidden beneath quilted mircofibre. To help you wake up naturally, you can set an alarm that plays music through the speaker, gradually raising you from your slumber!
There are a variety of Wake-Up Lights on the market now. Their purpose is to wake you up using light instead of sound or vibrations. Similarly to the Sound Asleep Pillow, the idea is to interrupt you during a lighter phase of sleep to wake you up gradually rather than suddenly so that you feel full of energy and refreshed. The light typically begins to build up around 30 minutes before the alarm time. Many are linked to the radio and can also function as a reading light. Darkness helps our bodies to sleep, and therefore the use of light is ideal for ensuring that we wake up naturally.
This device is also very effective for those suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). It is difficult to get enough exposure to sunlight during the winter months especially, so the Wake-Up Light can function as a kind of light therapy, helping to lift your spirits as well as improve your sleep!
This gadget helps you to sleep better by allowing you to wind down. Many people look at their phones before bed, which often disrupts sleep. This harmful type of light is referred to as blue light and reduces the production of melanin in the brain, a chemical that makes us feel tired. The BluBlocker Glasses allow you to look at your phone before you go to bed while protecting the eyes from the blue light. As a result of this, your body will be able to relax, and you can sleep soundly.
Pzizz is an app that monitors and helps to improve the quality of your sleep. The app has a selection of ‘psychoacoustics’ which are designed specifically for different phases of your sleep. The ‘psychoacoustics’ combine elements such as meditation, muscle relaxation and hypnosis to defeat sleep ailments like insomnia. The app is based on previous studies that prove music aids relaxation and reduces feelings of depression. The tracks change to ensure that you stay asleep, and wake up at the right time. Furthermore, they adapt to the sounds that you respond well to. You don’t even need an internet connection for this app to work! This app may be ideal to combine with the Sound Asleep Pillow.
All of these devices or apps are relatively affordable, meaning that you too can get a good night’s sleep! If you find that your current routine is not working and you are having trouble sleeping, why not experiment, and try one or more of these options. Sleep has a hugely beneficial impact on your daily life. If you use one of these devices, you can finally wake up feeling refreshed and energised!
Our Lymphatic Vacuum Massage can also help you to sleep better. The pressure applied to the body stimulates the flow of the lymphatic system, which flushes toxins out of the body. As a result of this, the treatment simultaneously relaxes and improves your health!
