Ever wondered how to make your sleeping hours a new and really refreshing experience? Have you had any sleep trouble lately? Here we have some of our app choices for you to try as they are all designed to help you turn your sleeping hours into super effective power-ups.
The only way to improve something is to measure it, and if you're trying to improve the quality of your sleep, SleepScore actually gives you a score every time you go to bed. The app shows a detailed list of parameters to consider and track in order to understand how to get the most out of the time you spend in time... sleeping, of course. Once you let it monitor your sleep, it'll give several pieces of advice from experts and also teach you a thing or two about what sweet dreams are made of. You can get it on Android and iOS.
If sleep meditation comes as a very hard thing to achieve for you on a daily basis, BetterMe: Mental Health is the app you need. It offers several options to soothe you and get you all ready for bed. From breathing techniques and guided meditations to relaxing sounds and anxiety management exercises, it all comes in one simple and very easy-to-use app. Get it on iOS or Android.
Probably, the saddest part of sleeping is the fact that it (as everything else in life does) has to end at some point. But the way we wake up really makes a difference in how we start the day and influences our mood. SleepCycle is an app that not only tracks and analyzes your sleep patterns, but it actually uses that info to find THE perfect moment for you to wake up and feel totally rested. It is available on iOS and Android.
Being in the present moment is a rare gift that we can give ourselves right before going to bed, and this app works wonders in that regard. Even if Headspace is designed as a mindfulness app, the courses and meditations focused on falling asleep faster are a great asset. There even are some relaxation techniques and music that will put you to sleep in no time. You can find Headspace for Android and iOS.
Journaling is a pretty effective way to reflect on the events of your day or relaxing before bed, and also serves as a great tool for tracking habits, goals or your mood. However, journaling can be quite time-consuming or easy to miss for some. Luckily, DailyBean makes the act of journaling really quick, entertaining and, above all, memorable due to its icon-based interface which allows you to record your activities and review past entries in just a glimpse. It's available for Android and iOS.
Slumber offers what plenty of us associate with the act of going to sleep: bed-time stories. But there's more to it than that because it also has soundscapes, meditations and hypnosis. Its library is quite extensive and presents a vast array of choices so you can get that repairing sleep easily. Slumber is iOS and Android compatible.
