Sleep is such an integral part of our lives. Adults need an average of eight hours of sleep, while children will generally need more hours.
There is a common assumption that there are never enough hours in the day. Due to varying circumstances, many adults are unable to get adequate sleep. However, sleep is essential to function properly.
Technology, in this case, could either be the reason why you aren’t getting enough sleep or a way to help you get a decent amount of sleep. Technology like smart mattresses and white noise machines are great tools to leverage on to sleep better.
Here a few of the top gadgets we think will help you maximise a good night sleep:
1. Smart Mattress
A sensor-based smart mattress is engineered to help you sleep better and wake up feeling great. It monitors your sleep patterns and gives you useful suggestions on what you can do to improve the quality of your sleep. It also uses a smart alarm to help wake you up in the morning.
Indoor air pollution can negatively impact the quality of your sleep; this is where this device comes in. Awair is a smart table clock-ish device that tracks toxins and chemicals in the air around you to help you stay healthy and breathe easier. It will also give you a sleep report every morning that analyses your bedroom and tells you how the air around you affects your quality of sleep.
This is a phone application focused on mindfulness and meditation that will help you sleep better. A bit of guided meditation every night can help calm anxiety and promote deep sleep. It’s great for people who have trouble falling asleep.
4. Digital Sleep Lamp
The new digital sleep lamp was developed to help you drift off fast. It uses a hypnotising blue light to coordinate and slow down your breathing, thereby stimulating your body’s natural resting state.
5. Snore Detector
If you are a snorer, this great for you and your partner. It detects snoring throughout the night. When inserted into your pillow, it will gently adjust your pillow when you start snoring. This will often stimulate the throat muscles, allowing for natural breathing to resume.
6. Electronic Earplugs
These are new sleeping earplugs designed to block sound using metal, rather than absorb sound like traditional foam earplugs.
