Sit down, take a breath and ask yourself: when was the last time you slept really well? What helped you to do it? Going to the countryside, switching off electronic devices or perhaps a proceeding calming meditation? Perhaps your last opportunity to have a proper rest was such a long time ago that you can’t even remember when it was? What did your body think of it?
Good sleep means better life. It’s that simple
In my work on the comfort of life on Earth and in outer space, I tackle the common problem of poor sleep hygiene. Good sleep is important for mental health and physical health, for improving productivity and human relationships. Lack of good sleep hygiene has serious negative consequences.
For years sleep deprivation has been used as a form of torture and yet today a lot of people give up on proper sleep out of their own will. Taking care of the quality of your sleep is one of the simplest ways to improve ones’ mental wellbeing, health and general life contentment. Why is it then that we neglect this opportunity for night regeneration? Why has this basic need become a synonym of luxury in today’s world? What made us humans go wrong and create a system where it’s easier to take a painkiller than to fall asleep and have a rest?
How can we help ourselves: nature or technology?
When I educate about good sleeping, I stress the importance of easy, small and accessible steps. I am eager to share my knowledge with regard to good practices for our sleeping hygiene and rest. I explain the valuable theories about the daily cycle and biological conditioning and inventions for improving the sleeping space. As a product designer, I choose solutions which are responsible and beneficial for our health and comfort. I believe in combining the wisdom of nature with the abilities of modern technologies.
