Tech to Help You Get a Good Night's Sleep

People say technology is what ruins our sleep sometimes, and there's quite a bit of truth in that. It's important to learn to unplug at the end of the day and take a break from the computer screen or mobile phone that we're checking constantly. However, if you have trouble sleeping at night, there is tech that will help you get your snooze on.

PolarPillow: The PolarPillow is filled with cooling-gel infused microbeads that pull the warmth away from your head and uses the coolness of the room to transfer into your body. After your body is at a comfortable temperature, the pillow warms back up to your body temperature. It sounds pretty ideal for the coming summer nights, and there is no setup required.

Infinite Relaxation App: I tend to fall asleep with the TV on or stream shows on my phone to help me fall asleep sometimes. If you want something a little more focused on inducing sleep, this app will soothe you into a state of relaxation. You can choose to listen to a voice recording or background music. There are options to help you take a power nap or get a good sleep for the night.

Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock: Some people hate the ringtones on their phone because they use them as an alarm clock. It would be more soothing to use the Sleep Cycle alarm app that analyzes your sleep patterns and wakes you up during your lightest sleep phase so you aren't jerked awake in the morning. However, this app is only good for those who don't mind sleeping with their phone in the bed.

Sunrise Lights
Philips Wake Up Light: The Philips Wake Up light is a simulated sunrise clock that wakes you up naturally with a gradual light - it beats waking up to a loud beeping or radio.

Northern Light Sunrise Clock: Another option with a more compact design to take up less space on the night stand.
