We’re not exactly sure what it is, whether it’s the recent heat wave we’ve experienced or anxieties around what’s happening in the world at the moment, but lately we’ve found ourselves starting each day by discussing the wild and wacky dreams we had the night before. It seems many of us are struggling to get a good night’s sleep.

Our sleep plays an incredibly important part in our overall health. A lack of it can cause us to lose focus easily, become short tempered, and even make us more susceptible to disease. So, it is no surprise that many of us invest in products to help us drift off quicker and have a more restful night’s sleep. With so many on the market it can be difficult to know which is right, so here are some of our favourites to make it easier.

Withings Sleep

The Withings Sleep Sensing & Home Automation Pad tracks sleep cycles (deep, light and REM), heart rate and snoring duration to determine the quality of sleep we’re getting. It also syncs with other sensors in the home to control lights and temperature just by getting into and out of bed. This creates a much more comfortable sleep environment whilst giving a detailed reading of the quality of the sleep we’re getting.It works with Apple and Android phones so can be paired with the Withings Health Mate app to view a breakdown of sleep quality.

Kokoon sleep headphones


These sleek looking noise cancelling headphones are perfect for those who need a little soothing music to help them drift off, but they also do so much more than that.The earcups contain electrodes that monitor EEG brainwaves. The sensors also monitor movement and sound, and send data to the Kokoon app, which then gives the user a breakdown of when you’ve fallen asleep, how long it took, and how deep your sleep was.The clever system then offers recommended programmes based on your sleep pattern to give you the best chance of getting a good night sleep.

Dodow


This revolutionary sleeping aid slowly projects a metrical glow onto your ceiling as it rests on your bedside table. The pattern of the light helps you focus on your breathing and relax your body, so you can fall asleep quicker.By synchronising your breathing with the light, you stimulate the secretion of neurotransmitters which help you to relax. It’s designed to be a healthier alternative to sleeping tablets for those who struggling to switch off. So, if you have got lots on your mind, this is the way to go.
