A Bedside Lamp Designed To Help You Sleep Better (#GotBitcoin?)

Can a sensitive bedside light aid your nightly wind-down and help you wake more peacefully? A Bedside Lamp Designed To Help You Sleep Better (#GotBitcoin?)

A Bedside Lamp Designed To Help You Sleep Better (#GotBitcoin?)

I’D LIKE TO THINK I’m good in bed: Sleep comes easily and lasts 8 hours, uninterrupted. But I need optimal conditions: a cool room with a whirring fan and total darkness. Harvard sleep researcher Steven Lockley, a man seemingly after my own heart, found that most lights, whether ultraviolet or artificial, keep us awake by suppressing the body’s secretion of melatonin, a hormone that influences circadian rhythms.

The exception? Red- and orange-hued light, like the glows of sunset and sunrise, something recent innovations aim to replicate. Casper’s aptly named Glow Light (from $129,, for example, gradually dims until eventually blinking out, purportedly to lull you to sleep. In the morning, it brightens to a warm color temperature of 2700K, which Casper hopes will gently wake you.

Each unobtrusive, matte-white cylindrical Glow Light charges wirelessly on a coaster-size dock and has a simple corresponding app you can use to schedule wake times and to sync up multiple Glow lights.

As you flip the lamp to start your evening wind-down (adjustable in 15-minute increments), it can be controlled through touch: Tap a button on whichever end is facing up to pause its dimming process if you want to finish a book chapter; slowly twist the light to dim or brighten it to your desired level; or give it a slight shake for “nighttime mode,” turning it into a portable lamp that can guide your path to a midnight snack.

Unfortunately, I slumber so deeply in the darkness of my “alcove” floor plan—that is, one with a windowless bedroom—that waking up is like emerging from a long winter’s hibernation. While pleasant, the light’s morning glow was far more ignorable than the successive blaring iPhone alarms I usually require. I promptly flipped the device to shut it off and went right back to sleep.

I happily adopted it as a bedtime ritual, however, and found myself craving its wind-down period, which I used to read or to quiet my thoughts. The comparable Philips Somneo (from $180, further encourages nightly relaxation with a feature that pulses its light for guided breathing to simulate the effects of meditation. And then, of course, it’s lights out.
