Sleep in the hand: gadgets that will help tame sleep
In a global fashion for personal effectiveness, it’s a shame not to work 24/7. Friends on social networks broadcast live from international airports. Waiting for night flights, they prepare pitches, conference presentations, business plans and articles. The authors of Facebook posts seem to be competing in a sleepy contest: who slept less today?
Shelves of shops are full of roots of books “How successful people do everything”, “Eight rules of efficiency”, “Productive ninja”. But among all this diversity there is no really necessary book, “Score it and go to sleep!”.
Studies prove: lack of sleep symptoms are similar to intoxication. Mental abnormalities, depression, self-isolation, and even hallucinations - the consequences do not scare the drowsy in big cities. “Three hours a day is enough!” - they assure and drink the seventh cup of coffee.
The creator of the Huffington post and the popularizer of sleep, Ariadne Huffington, also believed. Once she found herself lying on the floor in a pool of blood: she fainted and broke her zygomatic bone after another physical (and nervous) exhaustion. She understood: to live and work, you need to sleep. Since then, she has been promoting the healthy sleep that every person needs.
While scientists find out how much sleep is optimal for the human body, we talk about gadgets that rely not on quantity, but on quality.
