Sleep Gadgets You Might Want To Try

In-Shape | 28 Jan, 2022 | Wellness Tips & Trends | Return|

We’ve all woken up from a rough night’s sleep and had trouble getting out of bed. If you’re drinking a third cup of coffee today, you’ll want to keep reading. We’ve rounded up some of the coolest sleep gadgets we could find. Which of these do you wanna try?

 

1. Sunrise Alarm Clock


Struggle to wake up in the winter when the sun rises late? This could be a game-changer for you. This device gradually increases the amount of light it shines into your room starting 30 minutes before your alarm is set to go off, so you can wake up more naturally.
 

2. A Smart Watch with Smart Wake


Many of the newer models of smart watches, like the Apple Watch and Fitbit, offer a special alarm feature that uses your heartrate data to wake you up during light sleep so you wake up feeling more rested. If you already have one of these watches, look for this feature in your app or on your device.
 

3. Weighted Blanket


According to The Sleep Foundation, weighted blankets may aid in the production of serotonin, reduce the stress hormone cortisol, and increase levels of melatonin, the hormone that helps you sleep. Many people find them comforting—much like the pressure you get from a hug. When shopping for a weighted blanket, keep in mind that most people prefer a weighted blanket equal to about 10% of their body weight.
 

4. Sleep Mask with Headphones


If you like to drift off to sleep to the sound of music, podcasts or audiobooks, this sleep mask will be the comfiest pair of headphones you ever wear to bed. It links to your phone using Bluetooth.
 

5. Aromatherapy Diffusor


Some people find that smelling specific fragrances makes them feel calmer. For this reason, many people enjoy diffusing essential oils as part of their bedtime routine. We love lavender or chamomile for bedtime scents. Make sure to always use essential oils as directed.
