In case you didn’t know, REM is more than just your favorite 1980’s alternative rock band. Rapid Eye Movement is a vital part of everyone’s sleep. And for those who struggle to find a restful night’s sleep; fear no more, because it’s the end of the world as you know it.
The One Pillow I Love
Does your restless night begin like most others – with an earthquake, birds and snakes, and aeroplanes? Well Lenny Bruce is not afraid, but you might be. The good news is that many companies are working to develop customized pillows for sleepers of every kind.
One of these products is the Zeeq pillow. Selling for a price of $299, the Zeeq pillow is the ultimate tool to help your sleep life get back on track. Created by REM-Fit, the pillow will vibrate throughout the night to encourage the individual to shift to a more peaceful resting position. The vibration will also occur to stop your snoring if it becomes excessive. The Zeeq pillow will track your movement and snoring patterns as well. When you wake up in the morning, the pillow will provide you with a sleep score, which rates your quality of rest.
What was that? You think the Zeeq pillow just woke you up because the vibrations were too powerful? But that was just a dream, just a dream, just a dream.
Sleepy Happy People
Experts maintain that insufficient sleep is a public health concern. With that concern comes many companies focusing on the issue. Smart pillows and smart beds are just beginning to hit the market, seeking to solve a problem affecting nearly one-third of American adults.
Comfort is the main ingredient in all of these new products, including the Zeeq Pillow. In addition to correcting problems during sleep, the Zeeq wants to help you fall asleep. The smart pillow can connect with certain apps to play music that helps individual catch some z’s. So, perhaps you pull up a playlist featuring the soothing voice of Michael Stipe? Oh no, I’ve said too much. I haven’t said enough.
Many adults fear lack of sleep can eventually lead to diabetes and obesity. The recent explosion of sleep monitor devices is a welcomed sight for people fighting insomnia. With further research and development, the Zeeq pillow hopes to make restless nights a thing of the past.
As a wise man once said after overcoming sleep deprivation: “it’s time I had some time alone, and I feel fine.”
