12 Deep-sleep essentials for optimal rest every night

Getting to sleep and staying asleep both sound like normal, everyday human functions. When it comes time to rest and recharge, though, it’s a lot harder than simply laying your head down.

12 Deep-sleep essentials for optimal rest every night
  • Why is blue light so bad? It isn’t necessarily bad. Our bodies naturally respond to warm and cool light differently. Blue light perks us up, meaning being on your device can delay falling asleep at night.
  • What are some best practices for falling asleep? Some people swear by not eating at least two hours before bed while others reduce water intake so they don’t have to get up.
  • Where can I find more sleep essentials? Check out our bedtime category for everything from great sheets to more gadgets.

We all know we’re supposed to get eight hours of sleep a night for optimal performance the next day. But, along with a hectic schedule, actually getting to sleep and staying asleep can prove to be very difficult.

Technology is here, once again, to save the day. No matter what your shuteye requirements are, there’s a device out there to help. Check out these deep-sleep essentials to get the absolute best sleep of your life.

SNOOZ White Noise Machine

Does the soothing sound of a fan whisk you off to the Land of Nod? Now you can get all the benefits without any of the inconveniences. Featuring a built-in fan motor, SNOOZ produces the same sound as a bulky box fan but without the energy waste and cold air. You can also choose the volume of the sound and, thanks to its compact size, take it anywhere.

Philips SmartSleep Deep Sleep Headband

In partnership with engineers and researchers, the SmartSleep Deep Sleep Headband has one goal: help those who get fewer than seven hours a night. Worn on the head, the SmartSleep offers users a drug-free solution to sleep enhancement. It pairs with an app so you can also identify what’s keeping you from a great night’s rest.

Eight Sleep Pod High Tech Bed

There are beds and then there’s the Pod from Eight Sleep. This high-tech bed combines dynamic temperature regulation, smart home integrations, biometric tracking, and sleep coaching for better rest and recuperation. It actually uses AI to learn about your sleep habits and adapt its settings so you feel the most comfortable.

Ford Smart Lane-Keeping Bed

Although it’s just a concept, the Lane-Keeping Bed from Ford is the stuff of our dreams. It would-be bed features a built-in conveyor belt. As your partner begins to roll onto your side, the motor kicks on and rolls them back onto their own side. We hope it’s a reality soon as it would probably save a lot of relationships.

Casper Glow Smart Sleeping Light

We’ve all heard about how bad blue light is and Casper is here with a solution. Glow is designed to help your brain ready itself for sleep by emitting a soft, warm glow. Once you’re in bed, the light gradually dims, signaling to your brain that it’s time to rest. It’s small enough to accompany you on late-night trips to the bathroom and the built-in gyroscope provides intuitive control of brightness.

GO2SLEEP Home Sleep Test Device

Still not sure what’s keeping you up at night? GO2SLEEP is here to crack the case. This AI-powered device monitors your sleep and evaluates Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Likewise, you can use GO2SLEEP to determine the severity of your sleep disorder. Using the app, you can also see the best treatment options.

QuietOn ANC Anti-Snore Earbuds

Actively canceling out noise around you, these earbuds are made for bedtime. The QuietOn Earbuds cancel out low-frequency sounds which foam earplugs simply cannot do. Perfect for dealing with a snoring partner, their battery lasts a full 20 hours.

TUWAN Smart Anti-Snore Pillow Pad

Are you the snoring perpetrator in your home? TUWAN can help. This smart system comes with a top-notch sensor as well as a pillow pad. If it senses your snoring, the pad actually gently moves under your pillow, prompting your head to move and, thus, allowing your airways to open. Put simply: it cuts the snoring.

Sleepie Sleep Aid Device

Offering some olfactory technology to the mix, Sleepie uses dual oil diffusers to improve your mood and relax you. Likewise, you can choose from a number of soothing sounds or go for sounds of nature. All of this works together to help you drift off with ease.

Kokoon EEG Sleep Headphones

You may think that sleeping with headphones is uncomfortable. But you’re wrong. The Kokoon headphones are made to be comfortable enough for sleep but they’re also super smart. The built-in EEG sensors and companion app provide clinical levels of insight and the intelligence to help you improve your sleep.

Teptron MOVE Bluetooth Blinds Motor

Whether you work the night shift, have super bright lights in your ’hood, or simply abhor being woken up by the sun, you need the Teptron MOVE. It’s a motor for your blinds. Armed with Bluetooth connectivity, all it takes is a tap on your smartphone to close your blinds and block out all the stray light.

Bose In-Ear Noise-Masking Sleepbuds

From the audio experts themselves, the Bose Sleepbuds combine a comfortable fit with intelligent features to make sleep a breeze. They provide noise-masking technology to block out common ambient sounds so you can drift off. They can even detect ambient noise around you and begin a gentle audio track to drown it out. Plus, you can also rest with total peace of mind knowing you have your smart alarm set.
