Series of web-videos, expert interviews, and data to uncover the impact of sleep on well-being
BOCA RATON, Fla. – Nov. 2, 2015 – 60% of Americans say they experience sleep problems that affect mood, relationships, work and quality of life. To raise awareness of one of the most fundamental needs of wellbeing, Health o meter ™ nuyu™ launches their Sleep Better, Live Better campaign. Centered on a web- series that explores how sleep affects real people’s lives, the first video sheds light on the emotional and physical impact of sleep and how it influences your next day. Stress and Resilience Expert Paula Davis- Laack lends her expertise to the campaign, offering insight into how better sleep can prevent burnout and reduce stress, while serving as the Health o meter™ nuyu™ brand ambassador.
The campaign marks the availability of the Health o meter™ nuyu™ Sleep System, the first Bluetooth® technology connected Sleep System to feature a sleep mat that cycles through comfort-based sleep temperatures through the night to work like our body’s natural circadian rhythm. The Sleep System is a product in a series of wellness solutions by Health o meter™ nuyu™, which includes an Activity Tracker, Wireless Scale and Coaching Plans. The Health o meter™ nuyu™ Sleep System is available today for $499.99 at www.healthometernuyu.com, Amazon.com, Bed, Bath & Beyond.com, and Hammacher Schlemmer.com.
The Science of Temperature and Sleep
The Circadian rhythm is your body’s 24-hour clock, and the sleep cycle is an integral part of that. Before artificial light and temperature-controlled rooms, we fell asleep as the sun set. Our bodies cooled as the ground and air became cooler through the night. When the sun rose, our bodies gradually warmed and we woke naturally, feeling refreshed. This temperature fluctuation throughout the night is part of our natural sleep cycle and is what allows you to feel more rested in the morning, but with modern technology many of us have become disconnected from this natural rhythm.

The Sleep Recession’s Impact
Each day, more people are sleeping less than the recommended hours per night. Sleep deprivation is so prominent in the United States that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) called insufficient sleep a “public health epidemic.” The resulting sleep deprivation has been linked to health problems such as obesity and high blood pressure, negative mood and behavior, decreased productivity, and safety issues in the home, on the job, and on the road.
Stress and Resilience Expert Paula Davis-Laack, has taught, coached, and worked with tens of thousands of people, from CEO’s to doctors to help them better manage their stress and prevent burnout by developing better sleep habits. She teaches people that sleep is critical to overall well-being because our bodies have to restore and refresh in order to keep up with the increasingly intense pace of work and life. She also reinforces that better sleep is shown to help improve your physical health, strengthen your immunity, help you think more clearly, improve your mood and keep your weight under control.
“Getting better sleep is not an easy task,” says Paula Davis-Laack. “It takes dedication and a shift in the mindset to realize that sleep is not a luxury, it’s a necessity in order to live a more productive, happy and successful life.”

First-of-its-Kind Sleep System
The Health o meter™ nuyu™ Sleep System helps you get back in touch with your body’s natural circadian rhythm so you can sleep better through the night. The Sleep System works with a Bluetooth® technology enabled personal sleep mat that works to adjust temperature, while the nuyu™ Activity Tracker and free nuyu™ app work to monitor sleep patterns. The sleep mat is placed under your mattress sheets and works with the free nuyu™ app to set your starting temperature and begin the sleep cycle. The system works like your body’s sleep cycle by warming slightly to help you fall asleep more naturally, then cooling down to keep you resting without kicking off the covers throughout the night, and finally warming slightly again to help your body wake up gradually and feeling more refreshed.
The Sleep System connects wirelessly to the nuyu™ app to access collected data and set a wake-up time or number of hours you’d like to sleep. Using personalized information and night-by-night feedback, the system uses a proprietary algorithm and suggested temperatures to help take full advantage of the solution by providing adjustments to benefit your personal sleep cycle. The Activity Tracker can help you visualize your sleeping patterns and quality of sleep to understand how to get better sleep, right at the palm of your hands.
Whether the goal is to become more active, manage weight, carve a path toward better health or simply feel good, Health o meter® nuyu™ products provide a personalized partnership that fits even the busiest lifestyle.
