Facebook Founder & Dad-Of-Two, Mark Zuckerberg, Invents A Glowing Box To Help His Wife Sleep Better

Facebook founder and dad-of-two, Mark Zuckerberg, went all out to invent a glowing box for his wife and mother of their two children, Dr. Priscilla Chan, because according to Mark, being a mum and caring for their two children has robbed Priscilla of good sleep and she has been struggling to enjoy sound sleep for sometime.

As a husband with a sense of duty, the CEO figured that he had to do something about his wife’s bouts of sleeplessness, and he came up with the idea of a ‘sleep box’ which he built from scratch.

The thoughtful dad said the box has significantly improved the quality of his wife’s sleep and since it shows no time, she never has to worry about what time it is and can just sleep on. The box works by emitting a very faint light between 6 a.m. and 7am when their daughters are expected to wake up, only the light will give a hint that wake up time is close, according to the Facebook Inc. CEO in an Instagram post on Saturday.

Going all out to ensure that his wife enjoys quality sleep and doing little and big gestures to make motherhood a lot easier for Priscilla has earned Mark a lot of praises, because obviously, that’s exactly what marriage and friendship is about.

A part of his post read:

So far this has worked better than I expected and she can now sleep through the night. 

As an engineer, building a device to help my partner sleep better is one of the best ways I can think of to

express my love and gratitude.

Being a mom is hard, and since we’ve had kids Priscilla has had a hard time sleeping through the night.

She’ll wake up and check the time on her phone to see if the kids might wake up soon, but then knowing the time stresses her out and she can’t fall back asleep.

So I worked on building her what I call the “sleep box”. It sits on her nightstand, and between the hours of 6-7am it emits a very faint light — visible enough that if she sees it she’ll know it’s an okay time for one of us to get the kids, but faint enough that the light won’t wake her up if she’s still sleeping.

And since it doesn’t show the time, if she wakes up in the middle of the night, she knows to just go back to sleep without having to worry about what time it is.

So far this has worked better than I expected and she can now sleep through the night. 

As an engineer, building a device to help my partner sleep better is one of the best ways I can think of to express my love and gratitude.

A bunch of my friends have told me they’d want something like this, so I’m putting this out there in case another entrepreneur wants to run with this and build sleep boxes for more people!
