Talk about sleep started heating up at the end of 2013, and we're about to be catapulted into the Year of Better Sleep. More devices are coming out -- from Fitbit to Beddit -- which collect sleep information to help you learn to rest better at night. Sleep washes out your brain, leaving you better equipped to take in new information the next day, and a lack of sleep has been tied to many health issues. So grab some comfortable pyjamas, make a resolution to get in bed earlier, and put down those devices for a while right before bed to prepare your brain to rest.
