Prioritize Your Sleep With Google's Sleep Salon

As technology becomes more and more integral to everything we do, it can sometimes distract us from the things that matter most. Digital Wellbeing on Pixel is meant to improve your life, not distract you from it. The tools within the feature allow you to do things like monitor your app usage to prevent late-night scrolling, create a “bedtime mode” to manage a more consistent sleep schedule and pause unwanted notifications, calls and texts throughout the day.



With March being Sleep Awareness Month, Google has created tips that consumers can use to help get better sleep. According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, all adults need seven hours of sleep every night. In a closer look at the statistics, racial and ethnic disparities emerge. In a national survey of more than 400,000 Americans that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conducted, published in 2020, 34.8%Trusted Source of all U.S. adults revealed that they were not getting enough sleep. Results further showed that 43.5% of Black or African-American individuals had trouble sleeping, compared with 30.7% of white respondents.


Sleep deficiency is linked to many chronic health problems, including heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, obesity, and depression. Sleep deficiency is also linked to a higher chance of injury in adults, teens, and children. Now with Google's advanced technology keeping sleep in mind has gotten easier.


Check out their tips and products to help you with your sleep.


Pixel Phones


Our Pixel phones are powered by our new Tensor chip, which makes it possible to bring Google’s artificial intelligence and machine learning directly to the phone. This allows many of the most useful and impactful features on the phone – like recognizing speech, filtering out background noise during phone calls, translating speech into text and processing photos and videos – to work quickly without draining the battery.


Google Pixel Watch


As the first watch built inside and out by Google, the deep Fitbit integration provides industry-leading health and fitness experiences, including Sleep Score and Fitbit Premium tools like Sleep Profile, Daily Readiness Score, guided meditations and more. The watch comes in both Bluetooth and LTE options, with 6 months of Fitbit Premium.


Google Pixel Buds Pro


Our most premium Pixel Buds model yet. These deliver full, immersive sound for your nighttime meditations or podcasts. The Silent Seal adapts to your ear, maximizing the amount of noise that’s canceled, while transparency mode lets ambient noise in so you can hear what’s going on around you.


Nest Hub (2nd Gen)


Your sidekick for busy days and restful nights – Google’s Sleep Sensing technology offers personalized insights and recommendations to help you sleep better while easing you into your morning routine and unwinding you before bed.


Here's How to Have a Better Night's Sleep


Got Rhythm?


Your circadian rhythm lets your body know when it's time to wake up, eat or fall asleep. Keep yours on track by going to bed and getting up at the same time everyday, even on weekends. Our bodies and brains rely upon the regularly recurring cycles of the world around us – for example, natural light is considered our bodies’ strongest source of information about the time of day.

Sleep with your Google Pixel Watch on for at least 14 nights a month to get your unique Sleep Profile, along with your sleep variability, visualization of your sleep schedule and insights on your personal sleep style.


Power Nap


Trading naps for nightly sleep won’t benefit most people. Naps may still reduce sleepiness and improve vigilance, so if you need a quick nap, opt for shorter windows – 10 to 20 minutes – just not too late in the day! Put on your Google Pixel Buds Pro and turn on a meditation to help ease your mind as you drift off to sleep.


Get Up and at ‘Em


It’s best to allow yourself to sleep in until you need to wake up rather than setting an early alarm and snoozing, which breaks the natural cycle of sleep and won’t actually help you feel rested. Set up a bedtime and rise routine in the Google Home app to power your bedroom lights off in the evenings and on in the mornings, timed with your bedtime or alarm clock.


Slow & Steady


The journey to a better night’s sleep happens over time, and not every night is going to be a perfect night – that’s okay! Be gentle with yourself and focus on making small, attainable improvements to build a foundation for healthy sleep.


About That Nightcap...


Think another glass of wine will help you sleep better? While alcohol may make you fall asleep a little faster, data shows alcohol too close to bedtime can disrupt your REM sleep, causing you to get restless throughout the night and feel drowsy the next day. Peek at Nest Hub's (2nd Gen) display for a summary of how well you slept the night before, so you can make adjustments to customize your bedtime routine.


How will you take back control of your sleep?
