Sleep is important to our physical health and emotional well-being as we age.
As we age we just don’t sleep as well as we use to, and as much as what they say in the media ‘that we don’t need as much sleep’ as we age sleep is very important for health, both physically and mentally.
Here are some products to help you sleep.
Sleep Enhancing Headband
This is the headband that optimizes the quality of your slumber with a series of self-adjusting rhythmic binaural beats. It gently calms the brain’s level of activity, helping lull one to sleep and maintain a peaceful hibernation. While asleep, the device monitors brain wave activity using conductive fabric sensors and adjusts its rhythmic beats to help you maintain a deep sleep status.
A free app compatible with iOS and Android smartphones connects to the device and provides sleep monitoring feedback including the time it took you to fall asleep, REM sessions, amount of time slept, and the level of sleep throughout the night (restless, light, deep). The device’s speakers and technology are unobtrusively tucked inside the lightweight and breathable headband, keeping you comfortable throughout the night without constricting cords or clunky equipment. With volume control and built-in alarm that wakes users with gradually increasing gentle tones.

Light Sleeper’s Sleep Environment System
This is the smartphone-controlled sound system that creates an immersive audio environment optimized for peaceful slumber. Named among the “Best of CES 2017” by the Wall Street Journal, this system’s two wall outlet smart sound generators can be placed on opposite sides of a bedroom and behind furniture, unlike directionally isolated white noise machines. Designed by acoustical scientists, the system’s room-enveloping sound masks common indoor and outdoor noises that would normally disrupt your sleep.

Sleep Enhancing Pillows
This is the neck supporting pillow that helps promote a better night’s sleep using a patented technology that has been clinically proven to increase blood flow. The pillow’s cotton fibers are interwoven with strands of Celliant, a thermo-reactive mineral matrix that converts released body heat into therapeutic infrared light that is reabsorbed back into the skin.
The safe, invisible infrared energy generated by the fabric in sock, glove, and shirt form significantly increased blood flow. Optimized blood flow—in addition to helping regulate body temperature—has been a reliable method for decades to counteract the chronic aches, inflammation, and night sweats that can impact a night’s rest. The pillow ensures comfort and correct posture for side, back, and stomach sleepers by eliminating pressure points with slightly raised edges and providing a plush, comfortable cushion.

Another sleep aid. Melatonin.
Melatonin is a brain hormone that regulates the sleep/wake cycle. Changes in melatonin secretion associated with things such as Jet-lag, shift-work and sleep-deprivation may cause sleep disturbances. Melatonin used prior to bedtime may help provide sleep support.

A few tips to improve your sleep
– try to go to bed at the same time, including weekends
– keep your bedroom dark and relatively cool
– turn off all devices, t.v., tablet, phone
– if you can’t fall asleep, or wake up during the night, read a book instead of tossing and turning
Sleep is just as important to our physical health and emotional well-being as we age as it was when we were younger.
