When I think of technology for sleep, I think in two
dimensions. In one dimension you have your phone with emails coming
in, Slack messages, text messages, Whatsapp and so on that can give
you anxiety. That type of technology is bad because it keeps your
mind racing when you really just have to slow down. Our technology
at Eight Sleep has a different concept; you don't see it - it's
just there embedded in the bed and it does the work for you as it
enhances your sleep without anxiety. We've just leveraged the power
of sensors and machine learning to help your body recover faster
behind the scenes. - Matteo Franceschetti

Power Quotes From The
How Sleep Impacts Our Weight & Eating Habits
"When we workout, we feel good and thus tend to eat healthier
just because of that feeling. This is the same concept with sleep;
if you sleep well and had a solid eight hours of good sleep, then
when you wake up, hormonal changes with your ghrelin and leptin
levels will take place. You will not crave carbohydrates, bad food,
and most likely less food. The point is, this is not a placebo
effect in your mind but your hormones justifying these behaviors.
While instead when you are sleep deprived, and you want to try and
compensate that sleep deprivation and lack of energy in your brain
through food in particular junk food." - Matteo
Quantity vs. Quality Of Sleep
"The standardized quantity of sleep is 7 to 9 hours per day
but the reality is that you need a certain percentage of deep sleep
and REM. Light sleep is an inefficiency of your body to transition
across the different sleep stages and that is where we believe that
we can compress your sleep and let you recover faster. At the end
of the day, good sleep is strictly connected with your quality. If
you can get your 20-25% deep sleep and 20-25% REM, you translate
that into minutes and that is what you really need. Deep sleep is
more for your physical body and REM is more for your mind."
- Matteo Franceschetti
Let Eight Sleep Do The Work For You
"What I love about our Eight Sleep technology is that you
don't have to wear anything, you don't have to charge anything, you
don't even have to change your habits. There is nothing you need to
remind yourself; there are no obligations. You just keep doing what
you were doing last night but this time your bed is marked and it
will improve your sleep." - Matteo
