Uneed Wireless Sleeping Headphone
A new addition to our wireless headphone collection, Uneed Sleeping Headphone was created with one purpose in mind: help you relax before bed to the soft tunes of your choice. The headphone/sleeping mask is designed with your comfort in mind, so you will not feel any pressure on your eyes and head. The headphones are wireless –so you won’t have to fiddle with cords at night and will have the freedom to turn anyway you want without getting tangled up. You can connect the headphones via Bluetooth to any device, like a smartphone or tablet, and play your tracks. The headphone mask comes with its own carrying case and can be a life-saver on long-haul flights.
Tension in the eyes, forehead and temples is one of the major reasons behind bad sleep. That’s why you may often find people advising you to softly massage your temples before sleep or rub your hands together and put them over your eyes – as heat will ease the relaxation process. Alternatively, you can try out an infrared eye massager, that works with temperatures of up to 42 degrees and can be set to work in different modes and time intervals. This way, you will be able to leave all the work to the massager and focus on letting your eyes get the much-needed rest before another day behind the screen.
Aroma Diffuser Mood Light
Aromatherapy is one of the most well-known cures for insomnia, that is recommended by both traditional and alternative medicine specialists. Using aromatic oil lamps is quite a hassle – mainly, because there are oils and fire involved – not the best combination for relaxation. Simply sprinkling aroma oils on your sheets and pillow can be helpful, but will leave marks overtime. Aroma diffuser is a clean, simple and safe way to play around with aroma oils and go to sleep without worrying about causing a fire. Simply add water to the container and a few drops of you favourite aroma oil (lavender and eucalyptus are said to be good choices for inducing sleep), plug the diffuser in and choose time and light settings. Now you can close your eyes and juts relax.
Emoi Smart Lamp
One of the key elements of sleep is lighting. Natural, smooth and dimmed light will help you fall asleep faster, whereas sharp, bright, yellow lighting will do the opposite. Emoi Smart Lamp will put you in complete control of the lighting around you and you will be able to turn it on and off, as well as control intensity with a simple tap or touch. The lamp can also be used a 3W speaker, that can be connected to your phone or tablet – or you can insert an SD card and play soothing tracks directly from the lamp.
Digital Head + Neck Massager
If you want to get completely relaxed before bed, it’s not always necessary to head over to the massage salon. Digital Head and Neck Massager follows the tradition of Chinese medicine and carefully applies pressure to the key spots on your head and neck to release the tension gathered during the day and increase blood circulation. Add to that several relaxing music settings – and you have yourself a full-on sleep machine, that can get recovered after a grueling day at work.
