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. And 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 who lives 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!
It’s this cool little device called Dodow. You put it on your nightstand, and it projects a soft blue light onto your ceiling (that expands and retracts). 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!
The power of Dodow is actually in its simplicity. As I breathe along with the light, I’ll notice it starts to slow down. And then my breathing starts to slow down too, which actually makes me relax.
The best 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.
The relaxed, slow breathing combined with the focused, quiet mind really helps my mind & body let go of any tension and stress. It usually doesn’t take long before I’m asleep.
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 – those nights were the absolute worst!
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.
Often the problem is, after a while, you can’t sleep because you’re worried about not being able to sleep! Then you just try forcing yourself to sleep. And it becomes this awful negative cycle that spirals out of control.
Dodow actually helps break that negative cycle the very first time you use it…
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? The company actually says…
“…we’re not afraid to say it…in a few months, you may not even need Dodow to fall asleep anymore! How’s that for a sleep solution?!”
One thing I love about Dodow is how simple it is to use and that it hardly takes up any room on my nightstand, see…
As of Wednesday, August 15th 2018, Dodow is still offering an awesome deal. You can still get one FREE when you buy 2 and get FREE Shipping too!
It’s great, because my wife was always taking mine when she traveled for business. But now we each have our own.
It has a touch-sensitive surface so you just tap it to turn it on, then press and hold to turn it off. And 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.

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. All I knew was that I HAD TO TRY SOMETHING NEW because I was so frustrated with having no success with anything else. And the only thing I can say now is I wish someone would’ve invented this thing sooner!
It really is an amazing little device that’s given me back my sleep and can probably do the same for you too.
