It’s been well documented that our bodies need time to regenerate through sleep. We’ve all experienced the effects of what missing just one night of sleep can do to our thought processes, but this writer is actually speaking to a fully rested body. As a prime example of what this refers to, your humble Luxury Lifestyle Examiner will share a bit of her story and experience.

Upon returning the states this writer was left, for all intents and purposes, couch surfing. Thankfully blessed with beautiful friends, comfortable quarters were not a problem. However, relaxing and achieving a night of true rest was highly difficult to do. The basic ability to create a relaxing space was at the core of the problem. Fortunately, our dearest friend introduced us to two products that have now become a needed ritual at night, and both can be taken anywhere in the world. Your humble Luxury Lifestyle Examiner can now bid ado to sleep issues no matter where she roams.

The first product that we share with you is amala Beauty Renew Rose Line and Room Spray ($24) from the amala Aroma Apothecary collection. Made from organic Turkish Rose, which is renowned for its calming properties, Renew Rose Line and Room Spray gives a sense of well-being, and for those who enjoy meditation, this is a fabulous organic and cruelty-free brand that also offers this spray in lavender (for calming the mind) and peppermint (to focus the mind).

The next product that we share with our beautiful readers is Tranquil Moments Bedside Speaker & Sleep Sounds by Brookstone. As a firm believer that all things happen for a reason, it is reinforced as we briefly share the story behind how we found our way to this brilliant gadget. Unable to sleep, our darling host brought the Tranquil Moments Bedside Speaker & Sleep Sounds ($129.99) to our room. Heaven at first sound and solidly restful nights of sleep thereafter! Of course, one sharing an experience may not be enough and we feel obligated to share with you the specifications of this product.

Tranquil Moments Bedside Speaker & Sleep Sounds Specs:

  • For Nighttime - Doctor Developed Sleep Sounds
  • Twist the dial to choose from 12 digital sound programs
  • Gradually slows playback over 30 minutes to lull you to sleep
  • Continuous play or 30-, 60- or 90-minute sleep timer
  • Backlit dual alarm clock with 5 brightness levels (including off)
  • For Daytime - Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
  • Pairs wirelessly with any Bluetooth enabled device
  • Headphone jack and 3.5mm aux-in jack
  • Rechargeable Li-Ion battery
  • Includes USB charging cable, wall adapter, travel pouch

Never one to take anything at face value, this writer needed to understand the science behind the specific sounds. Tranquil Moments and the Rhythm of Sleep is backed by more than 25 years of clinical research, Tranquil Moments sound programs are based on the DELTA, ALPHA and THETA brainwave patterns associated with deep states of sleep, relaxation and renewal. When we listen to these sounds, our brains gradually try to match their rhythms, just as we unconsciously adopt the rhythm or tune of a song on the radio. When this happens, our minds are coaxed into the deep, restorative states of sleep and relaxation that are essential for us to perform at our best throughout the day.
