Lack of sleep has been proven to weaken our immune systems, cognitive functions and memory, and it can even promote unhealthy eating habits. Beginning on March 6, the National Sleep Foundation will celebrate Sleep Awareness Week — an annual event to raise awareness regarding the health benefits of sleep and its importance to safety and productivity. And on March 13, we’ll spring forward by advancing the clock one hour for Daylight Savings Time. If you’re one of the many Americans who has trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, the Philip Stein Sleep Bracelet may be your new best friend.

The Sleep Bracelet, which is available in a number of different band colors, uses Natural Frequency Technology to help you fall asleep faster, sleep deeper and wake up feeling more rejuvenated. The bracelet contains a metal disc that acts like a fine-tuned antenna, which is tuned to pick up natural frequencies that are beneficial for sleep. A recent study by Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada, found that the NFT disks increased melatonin production in human cells by as much as 20 percent. When worn, the Sleep Bracelet allows you to sleep deeper and longer, without feeling drowsy the next morning. Starting at $395; available soon at The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans and currently at
