Sleep Shepherd Blue
Confession: I was so impressed with this company that I started working with them. You’ll understand why if you try Sleep Shepherd Blue, a soft headband that doesn’t just track your sleep—it helps you get to sleep. It was invented by Michael Larson (a mechanical engineering professor at University of Colorado who earned his Ph.D. in engineering at M.I.T.) when his daughter was struggling with sleep issues. Sleep Shepherd Blue monitors your brainwaves and then plays tones customized to your own biofeedback that help lull you. The device even has a smart alarm on it that awakens you gradually, helping you get up on the right side of the bed every day.
