Helpful gadgets to get sound sleep

Sleep is a natural recurring state for the human body and mind. It is the body’s natural way of healing and recovery, which also helps retain information and counter depressive symptoms. Despite a sound sleep’s benefits to health and a happy life, many people experience difficulties getting a good night’s rest, especially in a city like Hong Kong with a hectic pace of life. Poor sleep can lead to depression, memory loss and even high blood pressure and other serious ailments. These health issues underscore the need to remedy the causes of poor sleep quality.

Smart lighting

The body’s circadian rhythm, also known as the body clock, is a natural, internal process that regulates the sleep-wake cycle and is often the part of the body that is affected most when using smart devices at night or when jet lagged.

Because the body typically associates sunlight with activity and night with sleep, new lighting technology, notably the Philips Hue White, recreates the rise and setting of the sun. It fades out and turns on to signal the body when it is time to go to sleep or when to wake up. This device synchronizes the mind and body to wake up or rest at the appropriate time.
