How does Dodow help you fall asleep?

Slow down your breathing

By synchronizing your breath (abdominal) with the light pulse, Dodow gradually takes you from 11 to 6 breaths per minute.

Achieve heart coherence

According to several studies, this rhythm is optimal for stimulating the baroreflex – a reflex that will rebalance your autonomic nervous system to bring you to a state of rest quickly.

Create a diversion!

You will occupy your brain with an activity that is much less distracting and exciting than the thoughts that keep you awake. Simple, but extremely effective! In psychology, this is what we call the “paradoxical intention”.

Tap the touchpad once for the 8 min mode and twice for the 20 min mode. Synchronize your breath with the blue light projected onto the ceiling: breathe in as it gets brighter….


…and exhale when it dims. You may find that the exhalation time is longer. It’s intentional. It helps to create the feeling of fatigue that leads to falling asleep.


At the end of the exercise (8 or 20 minutes) Dodow turns itself off.

You can then settle into your desired sleep position, no need to stay on your back.

Is Dodow for me?

It can take up to a few days (or more than a week sometimes) before you can actually get the most out of your Dodow. Your body is getting used to a new habit. As for when you do sport again, your body needs to adapt. ​

There are 2 different types of sessions: an 8 min and a 20 min. Try the 20-minute session a few times before returning to the 8 min. Practicing with this longer session leads to more time to adapt. Dodow triggers the parasympathetic automatic nervous system responsible for regulating relaxation & sleep.


Why choose a blue light?

Dodow is blue light used for good.

Dodow’s light intensity is too dim (< 1 lux compared to a screen > 70 lux) to prevent melatonin secretion (the sleep hormone). 3 levels of light intensity are available. The color blue is actually known for its relaxing properties, which after much testing, we found that the blue shade of cyan provided the best results in helping our users fall asleep.


I can’t see the light on the ceiling

If the light projected onto the ceiling isn’t quite right, you can always adjust the brightness setting!

#1 Press the touchpad until the leds light on

#2 Press once to go to the next intensity level

#3 Repeat to select the desired brightness intensity

#4 Press the touchpad until the leds light off

If you have very vaulted ceilings or a skylight, Dodow may not work for your bedroom.

Can’t I just practice breathing without Dodow?

This will require lots of effort (4sec inhalation + 6sec exhalation), so you may not be motivated enough to do it on your own. Or intrusive thoughts may prevent you from keeping on track.

What about the apps or videos?

Although they work, these often lead to more screentime or a disruption of melatonin.

Dodow may seem too simple to actually do something but simplicity is the key when re-learning to fall asleep.


How long should you keep trying? What should you expect from the first night?

Only half of Dodow users fall asleep at the end of the very first session.

Dodow should be the last thing you should do before sleeping. Implementing this habit will help you have better results.

Dodow helps unlock the process of falling asleep and speeds it up.

However, it would be unrealistic to expect a drastic reduction in the time taken to fall asleep, e.g. from 2 hours to 2 minutes on your first week using Dodow.

Some users have had to practice for some months (yes), but most of them report being now able to fall asleep within a couple of minutes, on their own!
