Adding noise machines to your bedroom sounds like a crazy way to improve your sleep. Especially if you’ve been doing everything you can to reduce the sounds of dogs snoring or way-too-early-birds chirping outside your window at 5:00 a.m. every day.

My daughter has gone through a lot of phases with fashion, so back to school shopping hasn’t always been easy. One minute she’s head-to-toe boys basketball gear, and the next she’s into oversized streetwear. I think it’s just a tough age to be a girl: She’s trying to stay true to herself, when her self is an ever-evolving project.

The good old days, when a phone was a phone are long gone. Our smartphones are not just a mobile connection to our sitter, spouse and kids, they’re our mobile office, our camera, our weather report, our GPS and more. Plus, as we’ve been learning more and more, they’re especially crafty and vying for (and consuming) our attention, and creating smartphone addiction in the best of us.
The use of infrared light to heat up the body as a wellness move is approaching a sort of phenomenon.
You can sweat in an infrared heat sleeping bag at Shape House (I love this place) in a pod at SaunaBar, or in a room in NYC’s HigherDOSE. Meanwhile, yoga studios like my new obsession Y7 (pictured above) tout the benefits of using infrared panels to heat their yoga classes.
The fact that your body temperature plays a role in how well you sleep probably doesn’t come as a surprise. Who hasn’t been woken up during the night by sweaty sheets (ew, gross) or half-way freezing and in need of another blanket?
So when I heard about Celliant, a techy fabric that promises to take care of regulating your core body temperature so you sleep soundly ‘til morning, I was intrigued.
