I tried out the new device that supposedly gets you to sleep in under 8 minutes, and here’s what happened!
It was a Wednesday and I had plans to meet my friend Penny for happy hour after work.
It’s something we do every few weeks, and I always look forward to it.
But this week was different. At about 4:30 or so, I glanced up at the clock from my desk, and thought to myself, “Ugh! I’m just too tired to go.”
I just really hadn’t slept well the night before. And to be honest, I really couldn’t remember the last time I had.
But a plan is a plan and I try to be a woman of my word. So I popped my second Red Bull for the day and changed out of my flats into high heels – that way when the clock struck 5:00 I’d be ready to go.
When I met up with Penny at the restaurant she greeted me with “the look”…
You know that look. The one your best friends give you that says, “Oh girl, what’s wrong with you? You look so tired.”
That’s when I finally muttered the words to Penny I so often thought but never said:
“Gosh! I’m just so exhausted. I slept awful, again, last night!”
But this time, for the first time in my life, I was thankful to say those words, because what happened next literally saved me (and my sanity!)
Penny told me that a few months back she was at her wits’ end with the lack of sleep she was getting. And like me, she had tried practically everything to help her fall asleep and stay asleep. But she hated the way some of the things she was trying made her feel.
After some quick research, she found out that taking prescriptions sleep-aids can increase mortality rate by as much as 450%!1
And that they can increase your chances of a cancer diagnosis by 68%! She immediately stopped using them and started looking for a healthier, more natural solution.2
And that’s when Penny began telling me about her new favorite tech gadget called Dodow. She started going on and on about how it was helping her fall asleep in under 8 minutes WITHOUT medication! And it was the best quality sleep she’d been getting in years!
She found out about it from someone recommending it on Instagram, she tried it, and now loves it!
(In fact, her exact words were, “This thing is my sleep savior!”)
If you’re as curious about what Dodow is as I was, here’s what it is. It’s a small, round device about the size of a drinking coaster. It emits a slow, rhythmic halo of cyan blue light on your ceiling that slowly expands and retracts. And according to the product engineers, it’s scientifically designed to put you into a deep sleep quickly, naturally and peacefully. Best part is it’s non-habit forming!
Some people even call it their personal sleep coach that helps them get to sleep every night.
Honestly, I was pretty skeptical.
But what sleep deprived woman hasn’t tried just about ALL the gadgets and gizmos claiming to be the cure to that pesky little devil called insomnia? Only to be terribly disappointed because THEY DON’T WORK?!
And besides, this particular device just sounded weird to me. So I almost brushed off the idea completely.
BUT Penny insisted I try Dodow because as she so delicately put it, “Sweetheart, you look like hell. What do you have to lose?” And since I’d tried everything else under the sun by that point, I figured why not. I trust Penny.
And I also trust reviews…
I noticed HUNDREDS of FIVE-STAR REVIEWS from Dodow’s happy customers online just like these…
Love my dodow! The customer service team is AMAZING if you have any issues. I have recommended this to my friends and family!Posted by Kate Agnes Kozak on Tuesday, August 28, 2018
And their 100% MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE certainly put my mind a little more at ease. I figured Penny was right. I really didn’t have anything to lose at that point! I decided to go ahead and ordered a Dodow!
As soon as I got my Dodow and opened it, I was impressed. And here’s why…
It came with a little booklet filled with tips and tricks to help me improve my Sleep Health and I got a unique customer code that gave me access to what they call the Dodow Sleep Platform. It’s an exclusive website that only Dodow customers can enter to access updated sleep health articles, research, and more tips and tricks to help insomniacs and people with all kinds of sleep issues sleep better.
It just showed me that Dodow was more interested in creating a relationship with its customers than it was just trying to sell a product.
So while I was certainly less skeptical, I was still unsure that this little thing would actually work.
But that night, I placed it on my nightstand, tapped it on, and followed the instructions to breathe in tandem with the glowing cyan blue light.
The first thing I had to get over was the fact that I was staring at a blue light on my ceiling because all you hear anymore is how bad blue light is for sleep. But Dodow says it’s not intense enough to cause sleep problems (kind of ironic, right?) and that in fact, the soft blue cayen light is actually scientifically proven to be the best color to calm and relax you.
So there I was staring at this blue light on my ceiling when…
…the next thing I know I’m waking up the next morning.
After waking up the next morning for two weeks and thinking…. ‘Oh my gosh, I can’t believe I fell asleep that fast!’, if you were to ask me if this thing really works? My answer is an emphatic…
YOU BETCHA IT WORKS!
And as a woman, you know how it is when you find something that changes your life and you just want to share it with other people who are suffering from the same problems! Well, that’s why I can’t help but shout it out and share this amazing device with the world!
What is Dodow?
Dodow is what happens when two (former) insomniacs with backgrounds in science, design, meditation, and yoga come together with a mission to help people get to sleep quicker and sleep deeper WITHOUT MEDICATION. They collectively create a revolutionary sleep aid device they like to call Dodow.
How Easy Is It To Use?
Most other solutions you’ve probably tried either involve taking harmful habit-forming sleeping pills (I just won’t do it anymore!) or even natural remedies like melatonin – which your body can also become dependent on. It might be easy to pop a pill, but the long term effects on your body are just so bad.
And natural approaches such as cognitive behavioural therapy, relaxation, yoga, meditation, etc… can cost you hundreds, even thousands, of dollars a year. Plus, they can take a lot of time, and a lot of effort, and a lot of patience.
Dodow is different because it’s super affordable, non habit forming, takes NO EFFORT, and the best part is, it takes no patience. The very first night you could be sleeping within minutes just like I did! And to make it happen, all you do is:
STEP 1: Get into your cozy bed and turn on Dodow.
STEP 2: Breathe in rhythm with the blue light, inhaling when the halo expands and exhaling when it retracts.
STEP 3: Do this for 8 minutes (unless you fall asleep sooner of course) and have sweet dreams!
By breathing in tandem with the light, Dodow gradually slows down your breathing to an optimal rate of 6 breaths while adjusting your exhalation so that it’s 50% longer than the inhalation. This is what puts you into a state of rest and gets you a GREAT night’s sleep!
How Does Dodow Work? (AKA: What’s the Science Behind this Device?)
While you are effortlessly and gradually drifting off into a deep, restful sleep thanks to Dodow, here’s what’s really happening behind your eyelids:
As you continue to breathe in flow with your Dodow, your thoughts will begin to decrease which in turn triggers the baroreflex, a physiological mechanism that corrects the imbalance in the autonomic nervous system that’s causing you to have a hard time falling to sleep.
Your secretion of cortisol and noradrenaline stops, and the natural sleep hormone melatonin begins to take over. Quickly and gently, your mind and body begin to enter into a calm, resting state, also known as the alpha state (which is a fancy way of saying low frequency brain waves). This means you are no longer in a wakeful state – your mind and body is primed for a great night’s sleep.
I also found a really great video online that explains it:
But Can’t I Just Regulate My Breathing On My Own Without Dodow?
I wondered the same thing so I actually tried it! Here’s what I found:
When I attempted to regulate my breathing without Dodow it was hard for me to find and maintain the right rhythm. I’d keep getting distracted with thoughts about whether I was doing it right, which would inevitably lead to thoughts about did or didn’t do right that day, and that would turn into — well, you get the point. Breathing alone just wasn’t enough.
So after that debacle, I turned back to my Dodow and within minutes I had quickly drifted into a great sleep. The difference is the blue light…
By staring at the blue light, it naturally forces my mind to focus on just the ONE thing, which prevents my mind from wandering and getting lost in random, ridiculous thoughts that used to keep me awake.
So after trying to fall asleep by regulating my breathing on my own without using Dodow, in my humble opinion… you just can’t. (Not as efficiently or effectively as you can with Dodow anyway!)
A Few Other Things I LOVE About Dodow:
- NO Side Effects – Unlike toxic pills & OTC drugs, Dodow has no harmful effects and as I previously mentioned, its calming cyan blue light is too dim to hinder your sleep.
- Won’t Disturb Your Partner – With the light intensity adjustment feature and auto shut off when it’s done running it’s full cycle – your Dodow won’t bother your partner one bit.
- You Can Easily Travel With It – It’s super slim design fits nicely in even your smallest suitcase and since it works with 3-AAA batteries, you don’t have to worry about an unwieldy cord getting tangled in your travel bag. (or looking messy on your nightstand for that matter).
- Perfect for Recovering From Jet Lag – Dodow is a great solution if you deal with Jet Lag when jumping form timezone to timezone!
- Great for Back, Stomach, and Side Sleepers – Simply breath along while lying on your back and if you’re not fast asleep by the time it ends, just settle into your favorite position and drift into a deep sleep in no time!
- Wean Yourself Off It – After a few months, many insomniacs report being able to fall asleep without using Dodow! That’s because as you use it, it’s actually retraining your brain to form positive sleep habits again. (Like I said before, they actually care about your health! You think those big pharma companies would actually create something you’d eventually never need to buy from them again? Ha! Yeah right!)
- Perfect For Kids and Elderly Who Are Afraid of The Dark – Having the Dodow light projected onto the ceiling can soothe and calm users, and make them feel safer as they’re falling asleep.
- Use Dodow to Get Back To Sleep – Waking up in the middle of the night can happen to even the best sleepers. But now it’s no longer a problem. Just tap Dodow on and fall right back to sleep again.
They Stand Behind Their Product! – If you’re not sleeping like a baby by the end of 30 days, Dodow offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee! Just return it for a full refund (but I’m certain you won’t want to)!
How Much Is Dodow?
What you’ll LOVE most about the Dodow is how it’s priced to fit any budget!
When you consider that you can easily spend $1,000s of dollars every year (and easily in a lifetime) trying to combat your sleep problems with things like sleeping pills, yoga and meditation classes, and cognitive behavioral therapy treatment, you’ll realize that getting a Dodow for just 59 bucks is nothing.
Especially considering Dodow will be the last thing you ever buy to help you fall asleep and stay asleep! Getting one is an investment in your health more than it is wasting money on things that don’t work!

I’m Beyond Thankful For Dodow And You Will Be Too…I PROMISE!
I hadn’t found anything that could help me with my sleep problem until now. Without Dodow, I probably would have just kept trying this, and trying that, and anything that promised better sleep regardless of the consequences to my long term health. But I’m so grateful to Penny for sharing Dodow with me that I just have to pass the favor on to you and everyone else who will listen!
So take the leap of faith that I did and join the more than 325,000 women and men who are using Dodow to fall asleep faster and get a more restful night’s sleep EVERY night – WITHOUT MEDICATION. You will not regret it! The only thing you might regret is laying their in bed tonight wondering why you didn’t just get one!
