You know by now that scrolling through your phone before bed is far from a healthy pre-sleep routine, but designer Lena Saleh wants to do more to help make sure your nightly activities are more conducive to a good night’s rest. She told architecture and design website De Zeen that she created a ‘sleep kit’ full of objects designed specifically to keep your eyes off your phone before bed.
“The loss of ritual that has arisen due to technology is alarming. I wondered how I could recreate this ritual of ‘winding down’ to promote our sleep hygiene and habits,” Saleh told De Zeen.”My goal was to recreate a modern ritual that acts as a gentle nudge to sleepers to promote positive habits and routines.”
One item in the kit is called the Breath Lux Light, designed to lead users through a relaxing breathing exercise using a soft amber light at night and stimulating blue light in the morning.
Regardless of whether this sleep kit is up your alley, creating a healthy pre-bed routine is essential for good sleep, and keeping your phone out of your bedroom is a great place to start.
