Have you ever wondered how important sleep is in our lives? These days, we tend to get an average of 6.5 hours of sleep per day. According to sleep scientist Matthew Walker, this is not enough and has a big negative impact on our cognitive abilities.

I really liked the interview and I think you should check it.
As you already probably understood sleep quality is one of the most important things for your mental well-being. If you have a problem falling asleep or waking up, there is a new Kickstarter project which you might be interested in.

The first generation sold well on Amazon and helped a lot of people to improve the quality of sleep they were getting. You can check their Kickstarter video below.
