Skip the Sheep: These Gadgets Will Improve Your Sleeping Habits in No Time
According to the Sleep Health Foundation, "technology use in the evenings may delay bedtime and interfere with sleep." Not only are bright, blue light-emitting devices disruptive to the wind-down process, but, letâ€™s face it, weâ€™ve all gone down those late-night Wikipedia spirals or fallen victim to hours-long YouTube vortices and Twitter doomscrolls.
However, this doesnâ€™t mean that tech and sleep donâ€™t mesh. For example, in a 2012 poll, the National Sleep Foundation found that 5% of Americans sleep with a "sound conditioner" (be it an app or a white-noise machine). In fact, there are plenty of handy gadgets out there that harness the power of technology for good by helping folks clear their minds, create healthy sleep regimens or wake up on time in the morning. Whether youâ€™re looking to create a quieter environment, better understand your sleep patterns or calm your mind, weâ€™ve got the sleep tech for you!
