Gadgets are a part of our everyday lives now and there’s hardly any facet of life left where they are not playing an important role towards improving the experience. Although people don’t always realize it, sleep is not an exception to this either. On that note, let us take a look at three gadgets today that have been designed specifically to help us get a good nights sleep.
The White Noise Machine
A lot of people don’t even realize it during the summer months, but white noise does help us sleep better. In case you are not aware, white noise refers to any constant noise in the background that holds the same intensity and pitch for long periods of time. Common examples include the noise from your fan, AC, heater, and in this case, the white noise machine. The machines usually have multiple settings for various kinds of noise such as rain, flowing water, fan, air conditioner, or blowing wind. The most iconic and literal one is the static buzz that generally comes from a television set or a radio when it cannot detect any signals to work with. You can even download a white noise app for your smartphone or play some from YouTube to mask any external loud noise which might be keeping you from getting an uninterrupted night of sleep.
While the HVAC system in your house might be doing a good job of keeping the temperature inside cool, the Bedjet takes comfort in bed to a whole new level. The gadget will blow hot or cool air right into your bed and in your sheets, depending on the requirement of the hour. It makes sure that you never wake up in the middle of the night feeling too cold or too hot because the gadget constantly maintains a steady comfortable temperature right in your bed to make your body feel as comfortable as possible. TheBedjet has been found to be effective in relieving hot flashes, night sweats, cold hands and feet, and insomnia.
The CPAP Machine
A good number of people suffer from sleep apnea throughout their lives without ever realizing that they actually have a condition that can cause brain damage in the long run. If you are snoring too hard, then you could have obstructive sleep apnea and you will likely benefit greatly from a CPAP machine. CPAP stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure because that is what’s required to keep the muscles in your throat, tongue, or tonsils from obstructing the airway. The mask can take a while to get used to but if you have been waking up multiple times throughout the night for a long time, you are suffering from sleep apnea and this machine could put an end to your restless nights.
A good night’s sleep is essential for us to function at peak levels throughout the day and also for staying in good physical and psychological health. These gadgets can help us achieve that and may even help some of us to come off the sleeping pills.
