Dodow is a sleep aid device that projects a blue halo of light onto your ceiling.

Dodow won't prevent you from waking up during the night, but it can help you fall asleep faster!

By breathing long enough at Dodow's rhythm (6 breaths per minute):

  • You stimulate the baroreflex, a small physiological mechanism that restores the balance of the autonomic nervous system.

  • You will quickly go from a state of alert (activation of the sympathetic nervous system)...

  • ...to a state of rest (activation of the parasympathetic nervous system), the same state you are in during digestion: slightly drowsy.

Synchronising your breathing to a light that pulses at a slow and steady rhythm has a hypnotic effect 🌀 (the phenomenon is similar to that of looking at a pendulum).

So, after a few minutes you should be able to let go and fall asleep!
