If you find yourself tossing and turning, unable to sleep at night because your mind won’t stop racing, then you should check out Dodow from LIVLAB. Unlike white noise sleep aids, Dodow is a metronome sleep aid. But, instead of ticking and tocking to keep a beat, it projects light to help you fall asleep faster, naturally.
Here’s how it works: when you focus on an external signal, you actually pay less attention to the hectic thoughts racing through your mind that keep you awake. Breathe in as the light expands, breathe out when it shrinks. As the light pulsations slow down so does your breathing, dropping from eleven breaths per minute to six. This slows your metabolism and puts you in an ideal, relaxed state for sleep. No counting sheep, fans, meditation, or knocking yourself out with sleep medicine required.
We’ve featured a variety of sleep aids, but Dodow says more than 300,000 people are already using their device to help get to bed. They’re falling asleep 61% faster than they were before using it. And, they’re getting up to 100 extra hours of sleep a year. If troubled thoughts, stress, restlessness, or chronic insomnia are keeping you up at night, Dodow could help you finally get the sleep you need.
All you have to do is tap the touch-sensitive surface to get it started. Tap once for the eight-minute cycle, twice for the 22-minute cycle. Dodow turns off automatically once it finishes its sleep cycle. So, you don’t have to worry about it running the battery down. The slim, compact design makes it perfect for travel, too.
