12 Essential Oils For a Better Night's Sleep

Many people add essential oils like lavender, lemongrass, chamomile to their SUND Sleeve to improve their sleep. Natural, holistic approaches like aromatherapy can also comfortably help you relax, nap, & meditate.

Here our 12 essential oils that may soothe your sense of SMELL and help you sleep.



A fix for “In the moment stress”

When stressed, we often take short, shallow breaths or forget to breathe altogether. Panic sets in and things spiral out of control creating more anxiety.

So what can we do for “in the moment stress”?

Applying soothing vibrations to the chest, along with doing Cyclic Sigh breath work, can quickly calm ourselves. Vibration to the sternum or abdomen with long exhales (sighs) will boost your Vagal Tone + HRV. This will quickly reset the body to start taking normal breaths again.

To reduce these stressful episodes in the future, we recommend:
1. SUNDs gentle vibrations to the sternum or abdomen for 20 mins/day while laying down or sitting back in a chair.
2. Enjoy soundscapes, music, audiobooks, meditations or breath work during those 20 minutes.
3. Apply essential oils to a SUND smart SLEEVE to reap the benefits of aromatherapy.

Over time this will build resistance & help with recovery after stressful events.

The free SUND App combines gentle vibrations with soundscapes & breath work. It also integrates with and enhances your favorite Meditation, Music & Audiobook apps.



Anxiety? the Cyclic Sigh can Help

Recent research from Stanford Medicine demonstrates that the Cyclic Sigh for 5-minutes can lessen anxiety, improve mood, and lower your HRV, which is a sign of overall body calmness. You can perform the Sigh by taking one deep inhale, immediately followed by another sharp inhale, and a long, slow, sighing exhale.

You can find Cyclic Sigh on the SUND app.

Breath Work recommendation:
1. Breathe IN, imagine you are inhaling calm & goodness.
2. Breathe OUT, imagine you are exhaling negativity & stress.



Using the Pomodoro Technique for Microbreaks

Studies are showing that “microbreaks” are an effective approach to daily work fatigue. Research revealed that employees were more inclined to take short breaks when they perceived their employer to be concerned about their health. The Pomodoro
Technique is an effective & efficient approach to breaks throughout the work day.
The SUND smart SLEEVE on the desk is a fantastic reminder for busy executives to take microbreaks
throughout their day.



Vibrational Touch

There exists a profound biological link between the sense of touch and emotional well-being. When you come into physical contact with something, the touch receptors in your skin transmit a signal to the central region of the brain.

When you engage with SUND the sensations it produces go beyond mere vibrations. They create a rhythmic experience that triggers your emotional cortex, inducing an elevated state or mood.

The super-soft plush smart SLEEVE enhances those comforting vibrations.




Instead of disturbing your bed partner with a sound machine or using uncomfortable headphones/earbuds when lying down, slide your smartphone into the SUND smart SLEEVE.

Soothing sounds from your pillow stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS). The PNS is the part of our nervous system that brings us down to a calmer place to relax and fall asleep. When you lay your head on your pillow, the soothing sounds activate that calming response.

SUND is the only wellness app with the Airplane Mode Icon™, activating it eliminates EMF radiation from 5G, WiFi, and Bluetooth.



What are Binaural Beats?

When you listen to binaural beats, your brain activity matches the frequency set by the frequency of the beat. This is called the frequency-following effect. This means you can use binaural beats to entrain (“entrainment”) your mind to reach a certain mental state.

Entrainment isn’t just related to binaural beats. It is a common part of brain function. According to some researchers, when you listen to certain binaural beats, they can increase the strength of certain brain waves. This can increase or hold back different brain functions that control thinking and feeling.

SUND has added four binaural beats for Relaxation, Healing, Sleep, & Mind Stimulation.



Essential Oils lower stress

Most studies, have indicated that various essential oils, such as lavender, lemon and bergamot can help to relieve stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Most notably, inhalation of essential oils can communicate signals to the olfactory system and stimulate the brain to exert neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin and dopamine) thereby further regulating mood.

The SUND smart SLEEVE diffuses essential oils, at your desk, without impacting co-workers.



How Music Affects the Nervous System

Vibrational sounds stimulate the vagus nerve, which in turn activates the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS). Our PNS helps us regulate stress. The PNS is the part of our nervous system which brings us down to a calmer place where we can relax and fall asleep. When you slide the smart SLEEVE under your pillow, you receive a gentle vibration from soothing sounds and sleep music that activates a calming response within your nervous system.



Can Tinnitus Be Treated or Cured?

Most patients develop tinnitus as a symptom of hearing loss, caused either by age, long-term hearing damage, or trauma to the auditory system. Tinnitus is more common in men,
seniors, blue-collar workers, military personnel, and people with common health problems, such as arthritis, hypertension, varicose veins, and arteriosclerosis.

SUND has added a sound that we hope helps* with Tinnitus Relief.

*Ask your doctor for medical advice specific to your case.



Gentle Vibrations Help with Sleep

Whether you’re a baby being rocked to sleep or an adult dozing in a long car ride, it turns out everyone enjoys a few good vibrations when it’s time for bed. SUND gentle vibrations to your sternum, abdomen, palms (not to your head) is very soothing while helping you fall asleep, nap, or meditate.



The Stress of Constantly Checking Your Phone.

According to a survey from the American Psychological Association (APA), constantly checking your smartphone has been linked with stress. The rise in use of social media has led to many people habitually checking their phones for texts, email, and social media posts. SUND Airplane Mode Icon untethers us from 5G & WiFi to eliminate disturbing
calls, ringing texts, emails & social media updates.




SUNDs Airplane Mode Icon eliminates EMF radiation from 5G, WiFi, & Bluetooth. While wireless headphones, earbuds, AirPods, & sleep headbands emit continuous EMF radiation all night if worn in bed.



Apple AirPods and EMF – how bad are they?

An independent test revealed that Apple AirPods emit approximately 10X the EMF when on a phone call VS. holding an iPhone next to your ear. You also may not realize that the AirPods are transmitting EMF all the time – even when you are not listening to music! Of course, you would expect them to transmit Bluetooth EMF when you are speaking on a phone call, but EMF is also transmitted non-stop while you listen to music and even when you are not doing anything! Most concerning is the no buffer zone between the AirPods/earbuds & the brain when they are jammed into the ear canal.

Bluetooth Headphones >>> EMF

Bluetooth radiation is one of the least discussed forms of electromagnetic fields. The lack of any formal studies has led industry “experts” to conclude that they are safe. Bluetooth headsets are earbuds that mimic miniature Wi-Fi routers. These hands-free devices use radio waves (RF) instead of cables to connect to a smartphone, cell phone, or PC. These RF frequencies are classified as low-energy emissions. But, a lot of recent research proves that even at these low levels, RF radiation is still capable of inducing a host of adverse effects on human biological systems. Some of these include neurological damage and DNA fragmentation, which can lead to headaches, ADHD, biological effects, Tinnitus, etc.

Most importantly, consider where Bluetooth headphones are most of the time. You place them directly in/on your ear. This means that even if Bluetooth devices operate at lower radiation intensities, the contact time between the EMF and your brain tissue is elevated. ALSO have you ever stopped to think about the contents of your head? It makes for the perfect antenna since it is filled with lots of salty fluid and conductive tissue, which are ideal for sending and receiving electrochemical signals.

Effects of blue light and sleep

While light of any kind can suppress the secretion of melatonin, Blue light, at night does so more powerfully. Blue light suppresses melatonin for about twice as long & shifts circadian rhythms by twice as much (3 hrs vs. 1.5 hrs). Blue light is emitted from your smartphone, iPad, laptop, Kindle, & TV screens.

SUND smart SLEEVE blocks Blue light from your smartphone at bedtime.



Reduce screen time to improve sleep

Blue light, from TVs, smartphones and laptop screens inhibits your body's ability to prepare for sleep. Blue light, more than any other light, blocks the hormone "melatonin" that makes you sleepy. Bottom line: You’re less drowsy than usual at night, and it takes you longer to fall asleep.

12 Science-Based Benefits of Meditation

The popularity of meditation is increasing as more people discover its many health benefits. You can use it to increase awareness of yourself and your surroundings. Many people think of it as a way to reduce stress and develop concentration. People also use the practice to develop other beneficial habits and feelings, such as a positive mood and outlook, self-discipline, healthy sleep patterns, and even increased pain tolerance.

SUNDs gentle vibrations in the palms or chest is a great way to meditate. SUND app also integrates with popular meditation apps like Calm, Headspace, Insight timer, etc. So you can listen to your favorite meditation app while experiencing SUND vibrations in an EMF-free environment.



Sleep Guide: Sound Machine + Less Screen Time

Some great sleep tips from this article. White noise provides a steady, balanced sound that can help put the mind at ease. As an added benefit, white noise can block out bothersome external noise. Blue light from screens throws the body’s system off for inducing sleep.

The SUND app offers numerous sleep sounds to put you to sleep.



More Sleep = Improved Performance

Athletes work hard from cardio training to weightlifting to video work to diet. In order to recover and perform, getting 8-10 hours/night of SLEEP is crucial. Studies from Stanford Medical School show that good sleep can improve speed, accuracy, and reaction time. Unfortunately, travel and hotels are disruptive when it comes to sleep.

SUND helps you relax & fall asleep on the airplane or in a noisy hotel.



Sleep & Exercise Relationship

Sleep enhances recovery from exercise by repairing and rebuilding muscle, optimizing hormone release, reducing inflammation, restoring energy, & refreshing the brain. Adequate sleep also helps us feel good, reduces fatigue, & makes us more motivated to exercise.

The SUND Sound Bath is a great way to fall asleep.



LeBron, Tom Brady, & Verlander all opt for more sleep

Sleep—not training or working for another hour—is when your body gets stronger and your mind gets sharper. You break down your muscles in training, but rest is when the fibers repair themselves and become more powerful. Tom Brady, aims to be in bed by 8:30 p.m. LeBron James nabs ten hours of shut-eye & reportedly relies on white noise (Rain on Leaves in the Calm app) to block out distractions.

SUNDs gentle vibrations, sleep sounds, & a soft sleeve all help put you to sleep.



The Many Colors of Noise

In audio engineering, there’s a whole rainbow of noise colors, each with its own unique properties, that are used to produce music, help relaxation, and describe natural rhythms like the human heartbeat.

The SUND app has the popular “White noise” and also offers Red, Gray, Pink, Green & Blue noise.
