If you haven’t heard by now, getting a restful night’s sleep is crucial to our health and well-being. Achieving 7-9 hours of sleep each night can do wonders for our body and mind. Sleep is vital for both our physical and mental health.
However, sometimes sleep does not always come easy or natural. Some individuals turn to sleeping pills or the classic counting sheep to fall asleep. I have personally tried tons of different techniques to try and sleep throughout the entire night, but sometimes these methods don’t always work. What if I told you there was a new product on the market that replaces these traditional sleep solutions?
Well, I would be lying and I will never lie to my readers. That is actually what I was told by a Dreem representative. Yup, just another marketing gimmick. After reading, researching, and testing the product, it does NOT solve anything.
Dreem is a scientific theory based device that was created to significantly improve your quality of sleep. The creators of Dreem believe their product is a success by supposedly mastering the science of the human brain in connection with our sleeping patterns. I’m not sure who they tested this thing on, but they definitely didn’t test it enough! Here are the five reasons you need to avoid the Dreem and continue looking elsewhere:
I’m just going to throw this out there and let the price do its talking. This device is $500. Wow! It could just be me, but I am fairly confident in saying nah, I am not alone in immediately thinking this thing is expensive! Even if it slightly worked somewhat, which it doesn’t, I still can’t see spending $500 on a gadget that is so-so. If it truly did all it says it does and lasted for many, many years then $500 would be worth a consistent good night’s sleep. After all, good sleep is critical to your overall health so there really isn’t a price on that.
Who likes sleeping with something on their face or head? Anybody? *crickets* The majority does not. And if you have to, like my beloved CPAP readers, you want something that is as close to non-existent as possible. This means it must be comfortable. The Dreem is not comfortable and does not stay on your head well. If you move around in your sleep quite a bit, as do I, then the Dreem is bound to come off during your sleep-moving slumber.
It is supposed to help your brain, not cause pain to it. People have reported waking up with a headache (another person who tested it). The noise or supposedly good sound waves it sends to your brain, I would guess, is causing this issue. It could be because it is not comfortable as mentioned in the prior point, but who really cares for the real reason right? It can cause a headache and nobody wants that, period.
Wakes You Up
Waking up feeling refreshed after a good night’s sleep leads to improved physical performance, mental clarity, and emotional stability. I always feel better after I get a restful night of sleep without distractions. However, this does not always come naturally for me and I go straight for a cup of coffee to feel energized. With the Dreem, it has definitely distracted and robbed me of any hope for a good night’s rest.
They say it may take a few nights to get used to and I understand that, but after many nights of bad sleep what do you think happens? We get grumpy and start realizing what a sham this thing is. The device sends sound waves this is supposed to help keep you asleep longer, but again it can have the reverse affect and wake you up evidently.
When do you usually remember your dreams? Right when you wake up right? Well, generally continuous light, bad sleep causes us to have crazy, weird, awful dreams that wake us up. And when this happens, you can remember those dreams that were terrible.
Don’t get me wrong, I like to dream, but I will choose a night full of dreamless, good sleep over a tossing and turning crazy dream night any day! Well, if by any chance you want to increase your crazy dream rate, get a Dreem. They marketed their name well for this aspect.
