I’m Not a Morning Person

According to DNAfit, it’s not laziness that stops me rousing in the morning. June 24, 2019 7 min read This story originally appeared on Engadget There’s a coded judgment that people who do well in the mornings hold against those of us who do not. “You’re just not a morning person,” they say, the words dripping with the implication that our sluggishness in the AM is a result of slovenliness. It’s the same subtext you see held against fat people, as overweight bodies are viewed as the result of some moral failing. Thankfully, I have in my hand a piece of paper — well, on my computer, a PDF — to refute those biases. I’m not a morning person because I’m lazy, but because it’s coded into my genes. I’ve learned this thanks to DNAfit, a company which knows more about me than I do at this point. It has previously examined my […]

Your Sleep Tracker Might Make Insomnia Worse

Inaccurate data and score obsessions could lead to unneeded anxiety. June 17, 2019 2 min read This story originally appeared on Engadget Sleep tracking can help you determine if you’re getting a good night’s rest, but it might exacerbate your problems in some circumstances. Scientists talking to the New York Times have warned that sleep tracker apps and devices can worsen insomnia both through inaccurate data and by making your anxieties that much worse. In a study, for instance, it led to people both spending too much time in bed (to boost their sleep stats) and reporting non-existent conditions that resulted in wasted treatment. This doesn’t mean the devices tend to be unreliable, and manufacturers have unsurprisingly rushed to defend their products. Fitbit’s Dr. Conor Heneghan claimed that few users deal with serious sleep anxiety, and that the tracking data could stress the effects of consistent sleep schedules and harmful habits. They can also pinpoint heart […]

Mark Zuckerberg Made a ‘Sleep Box’ for His Wife

The simple device allows his wife to sleep all night without the distraction of a phone or the stress of knowing what time it is. April 29, 2019 2 min read This story originally appeared on PCMag Mark Zuckerberg will forever be associated with Facebook and social networks, but we can’t forget he’s also an engineer and he just put his talent to good use helping his wife get a good night’s sleep. Posting on Instagram, Zuckerberg explained how he spent some time recently building a light-emitting wooden box. It sounds strange until you hear why he created such an unusual object. His wife Priscilla knows that their children usually wake up between 6-7am, so she got into the habit during the night of checking her phone to see what time it is and whether she needed to get up. The problem is, knowing the time “stresses her out and she can’t […]
