Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Nap-iness

Few luxuries in life are better than a perfect nap. In fact, sleep is arguably the best thing out there, though that honor might possibly be contested by food and drink or—*fine*—friendship and love, if you’re into those sorts of things.

But back to beautiful, calm, relaxing sleep. Not only is it a refreshing pastime, but sleep is also entirely necessary for our minds and bodies to function. In fact, scientists have shown that we can go without food three times as long as we can go without sleep, and that animals can be driven to insanity, near death, or death in as short as two weeks of not sleeping.

Why take that chance? Sleep could and should be the best part of your daily routine — forget significant others, forget Seamless, and definitely forget that pathetic excuse for a coffee break you take in the middle of your too-long work day.

You may think you’re sleeping well now: big bed, goose feather down comforter, a cornucopia of pillows, or, if you’re really fancy, a heated blanket in the winter (I say dream big), but if you haven’t heard about these sleep accessories, prepare to have your mind blown.

Hypnos Hoodie

They say that life is but a dream, and with the Hypnos hoodie, that dream has never been so sweet — or easy.

Hypnos is making headlines this week as the ingenious idea, born from a Kickstarter, recently surpassed its initial fundraising goal of $30,000 with a whopping $110,273 pledged at this moment and still six days left to go. Haven’t heard of Hypnos yet? Here’s why you might want to be interested.

How many times during the day have you found yourself with a few spare minutes to squeeze in a nap, but your environment is simply not susceptible to sleeping? Namely, there’s nowhere convenient to rest your head, and you don’t feel like laying flat on the ground or let it keep smacking against a car or train window.

With a Hypnos hoodie, all of that will change. Hypnos comes with a built-in, inflatable pillow, perfectly crafted for maximum comfort and style. The specially-designed airbag is perfectly inconspicuous, and with just a few puffs of air, it transforms your regular hood into a dreamy pillow in no time. Feeling sleepy? Just blow up your convenient hood and voilà! Sleep anywhere.

When it comes to getting that perfect nap, there should be no shame involved. If you agree, than the Ostrich Pillow is perfect for you.

How many times have you found yourself ready to squeeze in “just a few minutes” to nap but ended up with your face down on a hard surface or crushing your arms, only to wake up with a red face and sore neck? The Ostrich Pillow is the ergonomic answer to your prayers for an easier, more comfortable way to nap.

This over-the-head-pillow keeps you in mind by providing 360 degrees of comfort, as well as cleverly-placed holes for your face (because breathing) and ALSO for your hands/ arms, allowing your to conveniently nap in your preferred position. I would even use this in bed at night instead of awkwardly burying my arms beneath my pillows.
