When you have worrying thoughts or tend to stress easily over things, you can lose control of your breathing. This shallow breathing at a high rate negatively influences your stress levels. In contrast, slow and deep breathing can positively influence the relaxation of the body and mind, which makes it easier for you to fall asleep.


Somnox 1 guides you towards slow breathing. By feeling Somnox 1’s breathing movements you will (unconsciously) adapt your own breathing rate to the decreasing breathing rate of the robot. Slowing down your breathing rate will help you relax more easily.


In addition, Somnox 1 can be an external point of focus for your thoughts. Your mind will shift away from the things that keep you awake at night.

Somnox 1 can play soothing music, nature sounds, or soft white noise. These sounds can enhance the calming effect of Somnox 1.

Improving sleep is a process. Allow yourself enough time to get used to Somnox 1. In our experience, it takes about 2-3 weeks before you will notice sleep improvements.
