technology to help you sleep better Georgetown TXHow much sleep do you get each night? For most of us, that amount never seems to be enough. In fact, about a third of US adults don't get enough sleep and without all your Z's, you could be risking more than just a pleasant night's rest.

Sleep deprivation has serious consequences for your brain, body, and your business. It affects employees’ ability to focus, productivity, memory, decision-making, creativity, and most importantly, health.

Thankfully, we live in a world filled with almost every technology imaginable. Whether it be coffee mugs or wearables, there is a technology to improve every facet of your life.

Here are 5 ways technology can help you improve your sleep habits:

1. Sleep Tracking Devices

There are apps for your smart watch or your mobile device that use different methods for tracking sleep. There are also separate devices that connect to your phone via Bluetooth - rings, bands, monitors.
