By LLM Reporters on 6th February 2017

Sleep should be easy enough. Lie down in a dark room and close your eyes, right? But as we all know, it usually isn’t that simple. We might have a hundred things on our minds, irritating noises keeping us awake, a stifling hot room, or maybe a super uncomfortable mattress or pillow that you keep swearing you’ll change. Whatever it is, you’re definitely not alone in trying to improve the quality of your sleep.

We’ve already covered certain food and drinks that can to aid us in getting a restful 40 winks, but what about the wonderful world of technology? You might be surprised at the amount of useful items available that some formerly light sleepers will swear by. Whether you need one or all of them will depend on variety of sleep problem you have, so let’s take a look at a variety of products that could help you wake up feeling energised and positive.

There is nothing quite like your own bed

Comfort and coolness

There is nothing quite like your own bed. You know the size, the firmness, and have an overall familiarity that should ideally lend itself perfectly towards making you fall asleep quickly at night. However, mattresses aren’t built to last forever, and sometimes those hot summer nights can make you feel like you’re sleeping on a furnace. Sometimes we have to admit that our once-trusty mattress is giving us back pain and is well past its use-by-date (9-10 years is recommended).

To solve a few problems, the mattresses from Eve are constructed from incredibly comfortable memory foam material that’s also highly breathable. So, if you’re on the hunt for a new mattress, it’s well worth considering one. You can also read what others have been saying about the mattress for more information and advice.

Light, sound, and scent

It’s often not even our fault that we can’t sleep very well. Stressing about something the following day or a noisy neighbour are some of the main reasons why we find it hard to drift off at night. But never fear, technology is here to save us. The Oregon Scientific Store produces a little aroma diffuser that has many functions to aid sleep. First, it uses oils and water to disperse soothing scents that are said to ease nerves. Second, it can emit calming mood colours that can bring a tranquil feeling. Third, the aroma diffuser can play peaceful nature sounds that many find helpful for sleep. If that wasn’t enough, it’s also an alarm clock.

Get some extra help

Although you might be opposed to taking any pill before sleep, many people will swear by melatonin supplements as a great treatment for not being able to sleep. Melatonin is a hormone produced by the body to control when you sleep and wake up, but for whatever reason, many require an extra boost to assist in getting to sleep. This article sheds some light on someone who has used them for around nine years and thinks the world of them. Consulting a doctor before acquiring any sleeping supplement is a wise choice, but maybe this is something for you if nothing else has worked.
