Somnox- High Quality Sleep?

Image result for somnox

To be honest, I have a hard time falling asleep. I always have. However, one sleep routine that really worked for me in the summer was falling asleep on the ground on top of my giant Costco teddy bear. Not only would I fall asleep fast, but I would also wake up feeling fresh, thanks to my giant cloud. Now a company has improved and capitalized that feeling, so instead of sleeping on a big bear, you can sleep comfortably on your bed with a sleep robot.

This company is called Somnox. Somnox claims that their sleep robot “helps you sleep faster… by using breathing regulation, sounds, and affection…” (Somnox Site Page). Somnus is the Latin word for sleep; insomnia comes from that word, hence the name for the cookie store Insomnia Cookies. Nox is the Latin word for night, so Somnus + Nox means sleep [at] night. Not only did Somnox take a simple concept and build off of it, but they also used two simple Latin words to come up with their name, whereas Somnus, a potential competitor, only uses one. Genius.

Insomnia Cookies

For my post, this month, I’m relating Latin to cookies. The Latin word for sleep is somnus, somni (masculine). Insomnia comes from that word, meaning you can’t sleep. Insomnia Cookies, a chain cookie shop, is named Insomnia Cookies because it is open until three A.M.! So, basically, Insomnia Cookies gets its name from the Latin word for sleep. Insomnia Cookies sells cookies (that are so good it should be illegal), ice cream, and ‘cookiewiches’. If you live near a shop, this awesome place can deliver warm cookies to you. Or you can go to one of their 100 bakeries to buy these delicious cookies! They sell twelve different cookies; Chocolate Chunk, M&M, Sugar, Double Chocolate Chunk, Oatmeal Raisin, Peanut Butter Chip, Snickerdoodle, Double Chocolate Mint, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut, Triple Chocolate Chunk, S’mores, and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup. Personally, I don’t care how I get them as long as I get them.
