Zeo Sleep Monitor - Reviews and Guide:Millions of Americans have problems getting a good nights sleep and this eventually catches up to all of them. Whether they are groggy at work the next day or having trouble driving a car, the long term effects can be bad for your health. For those people with chronic lack of sleep they may often see signs of depression, obesity, diabetes, and even cardiovascular disease. When you are deprived of sleep your body will breakdown and you can become more susceptible to even the basic cold or flu that is going around. I read the Wall Street Journal almost everyday and I have recently noticed the ad for the Zeo Sleep Monitor. I've also see the Zeo ad on the Internet, so I know they are pushing this newer product quite heavily. I wanted to look into the claims the product makes and see if it was a potential answer to my problems with sleeping at night. Several leading news sources have done reviews on the Zeo with a wide range of feedback. We also looked online at Amazon.com to find consumer reviews and opinions to see how they matched the expert analysis.
To see the Zeo in action, watch the video we have posted below.
Let's get some quick background on the Zeo Personal Sleep Coach. The idea was founded by some sleep deprived Brown University students and their goal was to "improve the quality of peoples lives through the power of sleep". No doubt we could all use some extra rest each night. Many people think they are getting sound sleep but in actuality they are not in the deepest sleep possible and their 7 hours is not good enough. The quality of sleep is often more important than the amount. Spending $1000 or more on sleep diagnostics done by sleep labs is not necessary for most of us. A large % of us with sleep deprivation issues can solve those on our own. That is the unique part of the MyZeo.com website which is the "solution" side to the Zeo sleep machine. Ultimately, if you are not getting enough sleep at night, you want to know how to get more and better sleep. Zeo helps people diagnose where their sleep is going wrong and gives them tips and hints on how to solve the problems. Believe it or not, some people have no idea that drinking caffeinated soda or coffee even a few hours before bedtime can keep you up. Eating meals later at night can also effect the way we sleep. Stress is a big one as many people complain about things like "worrying about work" or "stressing on finances" as they hit the sheets each night. Meditation and relaxation is a key to solving some of those issues and you will see better sleep habits once you get in the routine. One of the biggest questions many of us have is - How long does it take for us to fall asleep? It may feel like on 5 minutes, but tests show that those with sleep issues take a much longer time falling asleep and getting into the deepest sleep - the point where our bodies get the most rest. Just what does ZEO do? Will the sleep monitor help me sleep better? We answer those questions next.
