Luckily, we have developed certain gadgets that can improve your quality of sleep. These gadgets, outlined by tech insider, will help you wake up feeling well rested and ready for the day.
Sense Sleep Tracker
This device tracks your movements while you sleep. It also monitors noise, air quality, and lighting. Its built-in alarm clock uses this data to wake you up during the lightest part of your sleep cycle; if that’s not cool enough, the sense sleep tracker also plays calming sounds and provides sleep tips. The spherical white ball sits on your nightstand while its small pill-like counterpart rests somewhere in your bed as you sleep.
Chrona Pillow Insert
This insert is similar to the Sense Sleep Tracker in that it measures your movements while you sleep. However, it also emits high frequency sounds to bring you into a deeper sleep. Additionally, it emits sounds that bring you into a lighter sleep stage right before you need to wake up. Chrona comes with an app that shows you how well you slept, and it allows you to set your alarm!
Shepard Blue Sleep Tracking Headband
This headband emits sounds that improve your sleep by using a process called “binaural beats.” Essentially, the headband emits different tones in each ear that creates an illusion of a third tone. According to scientists, this auditory stimulation improves the perceived quality of sleep. This device also tracks your movements.
Pure Enrichment Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier
Humidifiers keep your nose unclogged and skin feeling moisturized. No more waking up unable to breathe or from unbearable itching. Consequently, this device is most useful during winter months when dry skin and stuffy noses are a problem. The ultrasonic humidifier can operate up to 16 hours and has an automatic shut-off function.
2breath Chest Strap
This chest strap regulates your breathing as you try to fall asleep. By connecting to an app on your phone; this device syncs to your breath and plays tones that encourage you to breathe deeper. The tones shut off once the device detects that you are asleep. Following along with the app allows you to relax your mind and body. This device helps you sleep soundly while also allowing you to focus on your breath. Sound familiar? You can improve your sleep and also practice meditation. What a great combination!
Some of these devices are pricey, but who can put a price on great sleep? Also, here are cheaper options to improve your sleep: blackout curtains, sound machines, and free apps that can wake you up at the perfect time. We hope that these resources can help you in your quest for better sleep. And as always, sleep well.
