How to fall asleep quickly

A good night's sleep is the key to feeling good, a fundamental component of good health. High-quality sleep has a positive impact on the cardiovascular system, enhances mood and concentration, and reduces stress.

Recent studies have shown that the "global sleep market," which includes technology and gadgets, has exceeded $100 billion over the past four years. CNET has revealed how to fall asleep quickly with the help of modern devices.

Sleep Apps

The easiest option is to download apps designed to monitor and enhance your sleep. These are convenient and affordable tools developed based on cognitive behavioral therapy. For instance, apps like Headspace, Calm, and Sleep Reset offer meditation and breathing programs before bedtime. There is even an option to listen to a bedtime story reminiscent of childhood. The Oura Ring has additional functions for tracking heart rate and body temperature. The Sleepio app employs cognitive behavioral therapy techniques to improve sleep.

Sleep Trackers

Sleep trackers provide information about sleep metrics, including heart rate, oxygen levels, and physical movement. This data can help identify patterns or potential sleep disorders. Most of these gadgets are versatile and can be used not only at night but also during the day, showing other indicators such as physical activity. The latest technology offers sleep trackers that can be worn on your finger.

Sunrise-Simulating Alarm Clocks

If you dislike loud alarm sounds, this technology is for you. Special alarms can simulate the effect of sunlight entering your room at sunrise. As a pleasant bonus, the dawn can be accompanied by various relaxing sounds. Despite being referred to as "Sunrise alarm clocks," these alarms can also be useful for falling asleep, as they offer a mode that simulates an evening campfire in a natural setting.

Smart Sleep Masks

In place of regular fabric sleep masks, you can opt for smart masks. These not only provide blackout but also use sensors to monitor eye movements, which helps determine the sleep cycle and its quality.

Assistance with Sleep Disorders

When we hear the term "sleep aid," we typically think of prescription drugs. However, there is already sleep aid technology designed to address the problem rather than just treating the symptoms.

CPAP devices are used to treat sleep apnea, a condition characterized by temporary cessation or disturbances in breathing during sleep, affecting approximately 22 million Americans. CPAP technology prevents breathing interruptions and significantly improves sleep quality. The Inspire implant serves as an alternative to a traditional CPAP machine.

White Noise

If you require white noise to fall asleep comfortably, experts recommend trying special gadgets called white noise machines. White noise helps neutralize the difference between ambient noise and potential distractions that can stimulate the brain, such as external stimuli like traffic or fan noise.

White noise is not the only "colored" noise that aids in falling asleep, as "brown noise" and "pink noise" are also considered effective. All three sounds, known as sound colors, are constant noises with minimal variations and no distinct rhythms. They work similarly by masking harsh sounds to aid in falling asleep or maintaining focus. White noise machines offer additional features, including nature sounds, volume adjustments, and even night lighting options.
