Having trouble sleeping? Typically, it takes about 15 to 20 minutes for most adults to fall asleep. Anything shorter might indicate that you’re sleep-deprived and anything longer than 45 minutes could mean you might have underlying health conditions.
Good Night Goospy or おやすみグースピー is a doll that comes with two breathing rhythms, one for relaxing and the other to help you sleep.
It comes with a 20-minute timer and a washable, antibacterial fabric. This new model is now lighter and smaller than the previous model, making it perfect for kids to use.
Charging takes about three hours, and the device can be used for up to two hours.
Priced at ¥11,000, available online and in-store.

A slow, steady breathing pattern can help with meditating, relaxing, and falling asleep. The devices simulates "breathing" (although I'm not sure how) and apparantly you consciously or subconsciously synchronise your breathing rhythm. Obviously it's geared towards people who don't have anyone else breathing next to them.
that sounds painful. You may actually want to talk that over with a doctor before trying to self-medicate or investing in novelty devices.
It's programmed for all that. This is the result of decades of research and study.
Oh, I feel you. Hayfever season used to royally screw up my sleeping patterns: At night it was generally more bearable, so my waking hours shifted way into the night, sometimes until the early morning, for several months a year. And shifting it back to regular hours was always an undertaking.
Personally, I'm extremely lucky that Japan doesn't seem to have the kind of tall grass I'm allergic to. Ever since moving here I'm practically allergy free, and even though I'm not religious I feel the need to thank some deity for that.
Yet more cute toys to fill up female beds instead of doing what comes naturally…
I cuddle up next to my spouse and sleep all night.
