Technological Devices That Help You To Sleep Better

Technological devices are constantly evolving and address a growing number of people’s needs, including those related to restful sleep. And as the ability to rest is increasingly deficient in the century of speed, no help is superfluous in improving it.

As appealing as modern sleep-inducing devices may be, experts, say they cannot replace the healthy and restful habits of quality rest, such as following a regular sleep schedule, limiting caffeine intake, or relaxing before bed.

Modern solutions for obtaining quality sleep

People today want to sleep during the day and cannot enjoy sleeping at night. This apparent paradox is mainly explained by the agitated or disorganized lifestyle, poor diet, or harmful habits before bed. The US National Sleep Foundation found that 43% of Americans between the ages of 13 and 64 complain that they sleep poorly or insufficiently during the week.

Technological devices may be useful, but their relative effectiveness cannot replace the organization of a beneficial lifestyle for the constant regulation of the circadian rhythm, say the specialists of the Institute of Neuroscience in Atlanta, USA. These gadgets can, at most, induce drowsiness and thus promote a satisfactory rest, by stimulating melatonin production, relaxing facial muscles, or relieving headaches caused by stress.

“White noise” devices

Devices and applications for smartphones that emit “white noises” are considered some of the most effective devices with the effect of inducing drowsiness. These sounds actually mimic natural phenomena (rain, the rustling of leaves, the murmur of water, a waterfall, etc.) and cover other annoying noises, which disrupt sleep and the ability to fall asleep (ticking the clock, traffic, snoring your partner, or noisy neighbors).

Music devices

Music is used in many therapies with a relaxing and calming effect, being effective in treating sleep disorders. Thus, any device listening to your favorite songs can help you get a good night’s sleep. Specialists recommend creating a list of soothing songs and listening to them in silence before bed.

Castile audio

Affordable and comfortable, headphones are excellent sleep-inducing devices because they block the intensity of noise in a room. Those made of silicone are more effective in terms of soundproofing than those made of plastic or other synthetic materials.

Sleep monitoring devices

In a society where information is essential, people want to know, concretely, how well they sleep every night. Precisely out of this need, rest monitoring devices have been created, capable of displaying the state of sleep in which the user is at any time, counting the hours of sleep, and indicating the best time to wake up.

These revolutionary gadgets can monitor the temperature, humidity, light, sound, and purity of the room air, including user movements. The devices have the shape of comfortable bracelets or “pills” that can be attached to the pillow. These gadgets can also be connected to smartphone operating systems.

Knowing sleep patterns can help to organize the time spent sleeping, so that waking up does not occur during the deep sleep stage, for example. The correct interpretation of the information provided by these devices is also important. For example, a person who wakes up constantly tired could better understand the causes of this unpleasant state, concretely visualizing the stages of sleep he went through during the entire rest period in which he rested.

And no matter how much data such a gadget provides, the solution remains the same: for quality sleep, it is necessary to respect a regular bedtime and waking schedule.

Special pillows for deep sleep

These modern and revolutionary pillows are addressed to people who cannot always sleep at least 7 hours a night but need a quality rest. Pillows of this type completely envelop the head and obstruct any ambient noise, for a quick sleep and an uninterrupted rest.

Moreover, the pillow can be used anywhere, even sitting at the desk, because it is provided with cutouts near the mouth and nose, as well as with holes for inserting the hands of the sleeping position involves resting your head on the table.

Headache relief masks

Any physical discomfort can cause insomnia or difficulty falling asleep, especially if it is a severe headache. Gel masks that can be heated or cooled, applied to the face, help the facial muscles to relax and contract the blood vessels, relieving pain caused by stress and tension.

Masks to stimulate melatonin production

These special masks emit blue light with a calming effect, which stimulates the production of melatonin, the hormone responsible for the installation of the sensation of sleep. The light intensity and persistence can be programmed according to the required sleep time (10, 20, 30, 60 minutes, etc.).

Devices for a pleasant awakening

For some people, waking up in the morning is not easy, so devices have been invented to provide an alarm clock compatible with the user’s needs. Thus, for those who are accustomed to rescheduling the alarm indefinitely and sleeping too much, there are clocks that move by themselves and force the user to get out of bed to turn off the alarm clock.
