The Best Devices to Help You Sleep Better
Getting a good night's sleep is something we all want, but is a peaceful slumber something that we all end up getting? Unfortunately not.
However, making sure you are sleeping well is vitally important for your overall well being, often having a considerable impact on a variety of other aspects in our lives, including at work and our relationships with others.
Fortunately, there are a variety of sleep aids available on the market to completely transform the way you sleep. In this guide, we have rounded up the best sleep tech gadgets available on the market, to help make snoozing easier come bedtime.
DoDow Sleep Aid
DoDow Sleep Aid (£49) is a nightlight with a difference: it has the ability to make you fall asleep 2.5 times faster than usual. It works by projecting a blue light that pulsates onto the ceiling. This has an impact on your breathing pattern, which follows the rhythm of the light, sending you off to sleep.
@aroma Sleep Sheep
Many people find essential oils particularly helpful with getting a good night’s rest. This is where this device comes to your aid: it is an essential oil diffuser helping you to feel calmer and drift off to sleep.
Sound Sleep Pillow
This is not just any old pillow. This is a pillow that allows you to plug your audio device directly onto the pillow without impacting the sleep of anyone else sleeping next to you! Ideal if you find having sounds on in the background helps to successfully send you off to sleep, but your partner thinks otherwise.
The Sound Sleep pillow comes with a 1.5 watt Bluetooth speaker which can last for a whopping 8 hours on a single charge, enabling you to get a full night's sleep, without the battery going dead either.
Good Night Stop Snoring Ring
Okay, it is not exactly the most glamorous sleep device on the market, but that doesn’t mean it is not effective. The Good Night Stop Snoring Ring is quite self-explanatory, doing exactly what it says it will do: stopping you snore.
How does it do this? The ring is placed on your little finger and stops you snoring through processing certain acupressure points. A welcome relief for anyone sleeping next to you.
It is a problem that can be frequently experienced by couples, and can hugely impact the quality of your sleep: one of you is warm, and the other is cold. The unfortunate result sometimes can be that one of you has to sacrifice a good night's sleep.
This is where the Nanu duvet comes to the rescue. The duvet splits in the middle, which means one of you can have the cooler end (down to 4.5 tog) whilst the other can get all snuggly with the warmer end, which is up to 15 togs.
The weighted blankets developed by Calming Blankets can help you get a decent sleep whilst being super snug and soft to touch too.
How do these weighted blankets work? The additional weight (each blanket weighs between 4.5kg to 9kg and come in a range of colours) activates a response in the nervous system. By activating the ‘deep touch pressure stimulation’ in the body, overall awareness is increased in the body, having a calming effect on your sensory behaviours.
The overall result of this is a better night’s sleep thanks to the reduced likelihood of tossing and turning at night, as well as the soothing feel of the ultra-soft minky fabric it is made from.
