Abstract

Carolina made a pillow that helped the user fall asleep faster and sleep better at night, it aided people who normally took a longer time to sleep or those who just had sleeping problems. This project solely concentrated on breathing patterns by making the pillow inflate and deflate using Pranayama techniques which are based on inhale-exhale ratios and breath retention, the user breathed in and out following the pillows’ breathing exercise. Since you allowed yourself to practice deep breathing exercises, your heart rate was slowed, blood pressure was decreased, reduced stress response, and made it easier to drift off to sleep (Jerath, 2006). The pillow is long and when placed on the body and in between knees, there was something that kept the body aligned, it took pressure off of your hips and therefore helped the body relax (Savy, 2016). There was a survey that wass sent to 150 people who had issues falling asleep and asked them a number of questions. These questions will consist of: “Do you think the pillow will help you sleep better and will you use it”, the group was asked for their opinion on the pillow. Another was conducted survey to check if it helped one sleep better, and it double-checked if all the suggestions were considered.
