Sleep Technology for the Best Sleep Ever
Diet and exercise are routinely cited as the two most important factors when it comes to feeling our best. Sleep, however, is an often overlooked third element in the triumvirate of personal health and wellbeing. It plays an essential role in our daily cognitive performance and productivity, and sleep deprivation is directly linked to a wide variety of health disorders. In other words, catching eight hours a night is not just a luxury — it’s a necessity.
We know how difficult it can be to unwind at the end of the day, but with today’s most innovative sleep gadgets you’ll be sure to drift into a deeper slumber each night.
Miami Sunrise Light
There’s something unnatural about waking up in a darkened room with a blaring alarm clock. In fact, studies have shown that dawn simulation, the process of gradually illuminating your bedroom over the course of 30 minutes, helps to naturally bring your sleep cycle to an end so you wake up feeling fresh and energized. The Miami Sunrise Light from Lexon is designed for exactly that, with a soft and progressive light that mimics the rising sun and allows you to wake up the way nature intended. lexon-design.com
