The Ultimate Trick to Sleep Better at Night

The Ultimate Trick to Sleep Better at Night

How restful are your nights these days?

Do you go to bed, close your eyes and blissfully sleep for 7 hours? Or do you toss and turn for hours getting more and more anxious as the time for your wake-up call quickly approaches?

If you’re part of the latter group, I feel for you.

For years, I almost felt like a vampire, wide awake at night, but horribly exhausted during the day.

The moment I went to bed, my mind was filled with tons of ideas about my business and life, which made it impossible to make my brain, well, shut up long enough to fall asleep. I was constantly moody, had headaches, felt depleted and more and more unhappy.

I need sleep better. Lots of it and when I don’t get it, life just seems less glamorous, less exciting and less fulfilling.

That’s why I went on a little discovery tour to find out what might help my sleep-deprived body and mind. I tried all the conventional and supposedly miraculous tips for a healthy sleep. I went to bed at the same time every single night, I exercised every day, I avoided alcohol and caffeine, I even drank warm milk at night.

Yet nothing worked.

Until I watched a German TV show during a particularly sleepless night. It must’ve been destiny because I never, and I really mean, never watch German TV. They talked about insomnia and all the horrible things it does to your mind and then they shared a tip that would change my life.

Are you ready for it?

Make your bedroom a No Gadget Zone

That’s it. That’s the whole secret that has drastically changed my life and freed me of all my sleeping problems. Ever since I stopped having my iPhone on the nightstand I’ve been sleeping peacefully and through the night.

It’s incredible how calm my mind gets when I stop using gadgets about an hour before I go to bed. Everything relaxes and I’m able to let go and give in to sleep naturally.

So, what am I doing with the all time I now have before I go to bed?

I read wonderful, relaxing books. I journal about my day, my dreams and hopes. I mediate from time to time to let go of all anxieties and stress. I stay away from work and TV.

Everything I do is tied to me having a good night’s sleep.

You should try it. It’s simply miraculous.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
