5 WAYS TO USE A WEIGHTED EYE PILLOW

What is the Kocoono™ Weighted Eye Pillow ? What are its benefits and how can we use them to make the most of them?

The Kocoono™ weighted Eye Pillow is a small pillow that is placed over your eyes when you lie on your back. In contrast with the eye mask, this is not just aimed at reducing light pollution but also to provide you with extra relief around your eyes helping you to feel relaxed and release stress. 

The eye pillows are known for their balancing effects on the nervous system, inducing a deep relaxation and consequently a better sleep. The benefits of the Kocoono™ eye pillows are numerous and they are one of the most powerful tools for health & happiness to give instantaneous relief from anxiety & stress.

Deep Touch Pressure Therapy around your eyes

Specifically, the Kocoono™ Weighted Eye Pillow uses the Deep Touch Pressure Therapy on your eyes, increasing this relaxing feeling. This is thanks to its gentle 500g weight, which applies even pressure on and around your eyes helping you to feel peaceful and powerful in your body and mind. This, combined with cold therapy (putting the eye pillow in the freezer), make it ideal to combat headaches and migraines.

Pay attention to the 5 different times you will most benefit from using the Kocoono™ Weighted Eye Pillow

 1. After your Yoga Practice

This is one of the most popular uses of the Kocoono™ Weighted Eye Pillow . It is used for Savasana and restorative yoga.

In case you didn't know, Savasana is the final resting pose in the yoga practice at the end of almost every yoga session aimed to bring you images of calmness, rest and relaxation. The Kocoono™ Weighted eye pillow really helps you to get to the point of maximum relaxation.

The Savasana is at the same time a great ally for stress relief and quality sleep. If you are interested to know more about this practice and how it works we recommend you to read the blog Savasana, Resting Pose, Give yourself a break! By Orla Crosse from Performance Yoga where you can find the steps to get the posture position and a tutorial video showing how. 

 

2. Right before sleeping in combination with Lavender

The Kocoono™ Weighted Eye Pillow can be introduced in your Daily Sleep Hygiene Practices, enhancing your quality and quantity of sleep. Place your Weighted Eye Pillow when you are lying on your back, ideally. Due to its ergonomic design it will fit perfectly on your face. If you prefer another sleeping position, place it on your hand to hold it (you can use a cushion as a holding aid).

Its size is perfect to block the light at night time and its light weight will create the right pressure to allow the eyes to soften. 

Add lavender mist on your Kocoono™ Weighted Eye Pillow’s outer-cover to relax and make you feel like you are on cloud 9. Thanks to its customisable design, you will be able to wash the outer-cover and keep it hygienic.

Lavender has a soothing reputation as a natural product to help you relax. We recommend you use a lavender scent in a spray formula, like the Twilight Spray from Lush, a vegan product which provides you with a sleepy scented lullaby of tonka and ylang ylang.

 

 3. For relieving headaches

The Kocoono™ Weighted Eye Pillow is a powerful tool to reduce headaches and tension in the head. The best way to combat headaches with the Weighted Eye Pillow is using its cooling relief effect. 

You just need to insert the inner pillow into the freezer (in a sealable plastic bag) or cool down in the fridge (depending on your level of cold preference), lie down and place the cooling eye pillow over your eyes, recover from visual overload and relax!

 4. After work to relieve burning eyes caused by excessive screen exposure

Do you suffer from itchy and irritated eyes frequently? Most of the time this is produced by excessive exposure to a computer screen.  Kocoono™ Weighted Eye Pillow is great for relieving irritated, itchy and burning eyes caused after hours of computer work. To boost the calming effect around your itchy eyes, we recommend combining the Eye pillow with a warm compress underneath.

5. For simple relaxation and boosting your mood at any time

Too much stress during your day? Do you have 5 minutes to take a breath and lie down on the couch? The Kocoono™ Weighted Eye Pillow can help us to get a glorious and peaceful moment in the middle of those hectic days. Give yourself time to disconnect, be away from your screen and the daily demands and relax. In just 5 minutes you will notice its calming effects. After this little break, you will have a more productive day with an enhanced mood and better focus helping your productivity and overall happiness.
