Do you take naps during the day? That actually might be a good sign you are leading a healthy lifestyle.
Evidence suggests that a nap in the middle of the day may be just what the body needs in order to function at maximum efficiency.
The reason for this is that if we get up early in the morning like we're supposed to, we will naturally grow tired once or twice in the middle of the day.
And it's OK to give in and get some shut-eye. It's important that the nap not be too long. A 20 or 30 minute nap is recommended. If your nap is much longer, it could lead to unhealthy daytime drowsiness.
The evidence is so strong that Google invested in napping stations for its employees in order to increase productivity.
But napping is not a newfound productivity hack. Much of the Spanish-speaking world has known the wisdom of nap-taking for hundreds of years in the tradition of the siesta.
There are many health conditions, sinus pain and migraines among them, for which napping is a great remedy.
We have two products that can help relieve these symptoms while also blocking out light from entering your eye. They might not be as big as Google's reclining stations, but they can be carried around whenever you need to catch some z's.
The Intellinetix Vibrating Eye Pillow
This padded, super soft and comfortable eye "pillow" covers your face in a soothing ocean of napping goodness!
It protects your eyes from external light but does so much more. The padding is made up of ErgoBeads to strategically pad the sinus area. Rechargeable motors vibrate to provide external stimulation that actually blocks pain signals.
The Intellinetix Vibrating Eye Pillow can he frozen for cold therapy. It should be spot cleaned by hand and laid out to dry.
The Elasto-Gel Sinus Mask
However, if you are really looking for a hot/cold therapy solution, then the Elasto-Gel Sinus Mask may be the mask for you. This mask is made of soothing gel material that will not leak if punctured. Unlike the Intellinetix Vibrating Eye Pillow, the Elasto-Gel Sinus Mask can be microwaved for heat therapy that increases blood circulation.
You may remove the cover of the Elasto-Gel Sinus Mask and place the cover in the washer.
