If you ask most adults what small change would make the biggest difference to their day, there’s a good chance they would mention getting more sleep. It can completely affect your outlook and turn your mood. So why does it evade us?
We all know the benefits of having a good night’s sleep. Research has repeatedly shown that a healthy sleep pattern can improve your memory, assist weight loss and even help fight against diabetes. Despite all of this, it is estimated that around 70 million people in North America alone have problems sleeping. Whether it is the stress of a job, a busy family life, or a physical ailment, sleep trouble sometimes seems inescapable.
As we looked at in this previous post, tech gadgets for the home can assist your daily routine in profound ways. So, today we decided to take a look at how new high-tech gadgets could revolutionize the way you sleep.
Sleep Cycle App
Incredibly affordable and easy to take with you wherever you go, this app works by tracking your nightly sleep pattern. Humans naturally sleep in cycles, resulting in deeper and lighter periods of rest. The Sleep Cycle app pinpoints the period in which you are in your lightest sleep mode, so that you can be woken up with the least possible disturbance. The user provides a half hour time frame in which they must arise and the app does the rest, allowing you to experience what feels like a natural awakening despite the use of an alarm.
The Eve mattress is a one-of-a-kind solution to your sleeping problems. While you might not think of a mattress as a gadget per se, it actually uses next generation memory foam, revolutionary cooling technology, and a strong and supportive base layer to create a mattress of unquestionable comfort. The company only produces one mattress type, which is then customizable to any bed size. With all-natural and breathable materials which contour to your shape, you never have to worry about the quality of your sleep again.
