Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, has again proven that he is the realest husband goals.

The engineer and inventor has created a light box to help his wife, Priscilla, who is the mother of his two children, sleep better at night.

He noted that she always had to wake up to check the time, in order to go and check their kids, but sometimes, when she woke up before the set time, she would be so stressed out that she would not be able to fall back asleep.

SO he invented a light box to help her sleep better.

According to Mark, the light box works such that the light is visible enough to let her know it is time to go and check the children and dim enough not to wake her up if she wakes up before the set time.

He noted that this invention has helped her sleep better and he chose not to sell the idea out for money.

Instead, he called on engineers to work on the light box to help other moms sleep better.

He wrote: “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!”
