Despite going through a very public divorce and everything that goes on with owning a conglomerate of brands, Kim Kardashian is getting great sleep. In partnership with ŌURA, the reality star shared that she slept a total of nine hours and 36 minutes using the brand’s recording technology. As someone who values (and strives for) eight-plus hours of sleep each night, I’m shocked.
It seems wellness queen Gwyneth Paltrow is now coming for the crown. She reposted Kardashian’s story, adding, “How is this possible? @KimKardashian are you a 16-year-old boy on a Saturday morning???”.
Paltrow shared her sleep from the evening prior and recorded just eight hours and 29 minutes. Which is still extremely impressive if you ask us. She tagged the reality star again, writing, “@KimKardashian I though for sure I would win. Foiled (sic) again!”
The ŌURA Ring is a new celebrity obsession that delivers precise, personalised health insights straight to your phone. Users wear a gold or silver ring that is embedded with high-tech sensors. Like a smart watch, it reads your pulse and details activity, calories burned and steps as well as the sleep cycle. Taking these measurements from the finger is believed to be more accurate than the wrist.
The results from both Kardashian and Paltrow beg the question as to why we can’t get the same quality sleep. While everybody is different Paltrow said in a 2017 interview with People that she tries to stay away from processed sugars and white carbs.
“I think as I’ve gotten older and hopefully wiser I’ve tried to focus on doing little things throughout my week to bolster my strength and energy,” she told the publication. “I’m trying not to cave into sugar cravings and lots of white carbs all the time, because that’s my kind of go-to; if I get tired in the afternoon I want pretzels, or I want Swiss cheese on a cracker or a baguette. I really love white carbs, which is not great for optimising your health and your energy.”
Consider us inspired for a better night sleep.
