What is Dodow?
Dodow is a metronome with a light system that helps you fall asleep naturally, without taking any medicine. Dodow started selling in France 2 years ago. So far, more than 70,000 people are falling asleep with Dodow 🙂
How does it induce sleep?
Focusing on the light beam projected on the ceiling slows down the flow of your thoughts. At the same time, synchronizing your (abdominal) breathing with the movement of the light gradually reduces your breathing rate from 11 to 6 breaths per minute. A very slow breathing rate based on the heart coherence rate allows you to regulate the autonomic nervous system. The rhythm of the light also has a hypnotic effect. This relaxing activity helps you get rid of the churning thoughts that keep you awake. After 8 minutes (length of the exercise), sleep is not far off !
Who can benefit?
Anyone with problems falling asleep (from 6 years of age) : churning thoughts, stress, exam anxiety, waking up in the middle of the night.
