Two insomniacs create an amazing gadget that stops overthinking and puts you to sleep fast!
You know what I can’t stand? Lying in bed, exhausted, trying to fall asleep – but I can’t stop thinking! It seems like the second the lights go off and my head hits the pillow, my brain is racing with all the answers to all the questions I didn’t even know I was asking?
And of course the more I try to ignore it... the louder and more chaotic it would get. It’s been years since I’ve been able to shut my brain off - basically get out of my own head - and peacefully fall asleep.
I’ve tried just about everything to help me quickly fall asleep. I’ve spent decent money on fancy sound machines or mood lighting...didn’t work, waste of money. And all sleeping pills do is knock me out.
The quality of my sleep was terrible - I’d wake up groggy and still very tired. Not to mention the potential side effects or that they can be habit forming.
So when my friend in Europe recommended a new device that is supposed to help you fall asleep fast and improve the quality of sleep (all naturally). I was all over it!
I was so excited about the potential of this thing. After trying everything else with little to no success, I figured if this device worked half as good as my friend said it did, I’d be happy. Well, let me assure you, it works better!
What is it?
This really cool little device is called Dodow - you put it on your nightstand, and it projects a soft blue light onto your ceiling (that expands and retracts).
How does it work?
The power of Dodow is actually in its simplicity. As you breathe along with the light, you’ll notice it starts to slow down. And then your breathing starts to slow down too, which actually allows you to relax.
When you breathe along with the light as it fades in and out, it helps you relax and calm your mind. I know it sounds weird - which it is - but it actually works!
Using the Dodow couldn’t be easier, simply follow these steps:
- Step 1: Simply place Dodow on your nightstand.
- Step 2: Press down on the touch-sensitive surface to turn it on.
- Step 3: Enjoy a restful night's sleep.
If you want to adjust the brightness, just swipe it. Plus, it comes with batteries so it works right out of the box, and it’s easy to travel with too.
What actually makes Dodow so effective?
✅ Calms and quiets your mind.
✅ Slows your breathing down which relaxes your mind and body.
✅ Guides long exhales which release CO2 and makes you feel sleepy.
✅ Reduces brainwave activity which naturally happens right before you fall asleep.
✅ Switches off the fight or flight response, which removes anxiety.
My Favorite Part: Dodow doesn’t make me think - I simply focus on and breathe along with the little blue light. Then suddenly, those crazy, frustrating thoughts that would normally keep me awake would be gone. My mind would be clear and quiet - completely ready for sleep.
But even better, what I’ve also noticed is how peacefully I’m sleeping. I used to frequently wake up in the middle of the night because my mind was still overstimulated from stressful thoughts. And once I woke up, I’d have trouble getting back to sleep.
Now, my dreams are definitely not stressful like they used to be. They’re calm and normal. I’m actually sleeping through the night, getting quality sleep, and I’m waking up feeling great.

Final Verdict: Should you get the Dodow?
Look, I was skeptical about this little blue blinking light having any kind of effect on my sleep at first too. But I can honestly say that I’ve never experienced anything quite like it.
If you're like me, and often times you can’t sleep because you’re worried about not being able to sleep, then you need to give the Dodow a try. Before, I would just try forcing myself to sleep. Then it becomes this awful cycle that spirals out of control.
And as you continue using it, you’re actually retraining your brain to learn how to fall asleep on its own again. How amazing is that?
So, where can you purchase a Dodow?
This is probably the question you've been waiting for - "how much is a restful night's sleep going to cost me?" We're actually excited to say, not that much.
It really is an amazing little device that’s given me back my sleep and can do the same for you.
Here's a PRO tip: Get your holiday shopping done early. Dodow makes a great gift for frequent travelers, students, and those night-owls in the family.
