As youngsters, we often disregard sleep. No matter how hard our parents try to make us sleep, we would try all our best to stay up and play. When we reach college, that is when we start to realize that we should have gotten lots of sleep while we still could, and now we can’t.
As we enter adulthood, and we are faced with more and more mature tasks and obligations, we often need to sleep late or even wake up way too early to accomplish them. But with the lack of sleep, we just don’t seem to have enough energy to do all these. What we want is good quality sleep despite bad quantity because unfortunately we really cannot extend sleep but just make the best out of it.
Luckily for us, technology has provided us with gadgets that will provide us with better sleep. They are:
Glo to Sleep Therapy Mask
Glo to Sleep Therapy Mask is the union of Eastern meditation techniques with modern technology. It works by calming your beta-brain waves to clear your mind, and activates alpha-brain waves to allow relaxation and sleep.
According to Kendra Cherry’s article on sleep at About.com,
“During the earliest phases of sleep, you are still relatively awake and alert. The brain produces what are known as beta waves, which are small and fast. As the brain begins to relax and slow down, slower waves known as alpha waves are produced.
During this time when you are not quite asleep, you may experience strange and extremely vivid sensations known as hypnagogic hallucinations. Common examples of this phenomenon include feeling like you are falling or hearing someone call your name.”
So, how does it work? You just have to hold it up a light source for 30 seconds, slip it on, look at the highest points of the blue “glo”. You will then feel relaxed and sleepy. This is available for $39.99, with free-shipping, and you can get your money-back if it doesn’t work for you within 90 days.
Nightwave Sleep Assistant
NightWave’s light gently ebbs and flows. Inhale and exhale in sync with the light.The light, and your breathing, slows down. You relax, deeper and deeper.The next thing you know, it’s morning!
Nightwave Sleep Assistant works by projecting blue light to your ceiling. You will then lay down with your eyes open, looking at the light. You will breathe according to the speed of the blue light’s movement until it slows down to a stop, and by then, you would have fallen asleep.
The key here is breathing, and taking control of your nervous system to relieve yourself of tension, making you relaxed and have a good night’s sleep. It is effective for people with insomnia, and even for those who tend to wake up in the middle of the night. There are no risks associated with it; unlike taking sleeping pills, this would not damage your body system in any way.
