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.

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.

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.
