You Won’t Believe You Haven’t Downloaded These 5 Sleep Apps

There are some ways technology can hinder our sleep, such as reading from an e-reader right before going to sleep or watching a television or computer screen in bed. However, there are ways technology can help your sleep too! Here are five apps from your smart phone that you won’t believe you haven’t found and downloaded yet.

1. Sleep Genius

This app was developed to help NASA astronauts get to sleep and has almost all the features of other sleep apps combined. It helps you figure out how much sleep you need to get and what your ideal bedtime is. It includes a relaxation program that helps reduce stress and anxiety though music and sounds that target cardiac and respiratory systems. It can be listened to before bed or to meditate throughout the day. It also has a soothing wake up alarm that gently wakens you for five minutes, beginning five minutes before you have set the alarm to go off. There is also a power nap feature that has psychoacoustic music designed to trigger relaxation and then wake you at the end of the time you set. Not only that, but the app also collects data about your sleep quality and quantity throughout the night to monitor your sleep habits.

2. SleepCycle

SleepCycle has a bio alarm clock that uses motion sensors in your phone to track movements during sleep to estimate what sleep stage you are in. It then wakes you up around the time you have your alarm set when you are in the lightest stage of sleep so as to wake you up in the most gradual way possible. It also keeps track of your sleep quality and presents it to you in a graph form so you can see your estimated sleep habits.

3. Pzizz

This app is not an alarm or sleep tracker, but it helps lull you to sleep with relaxing sounds and white noise. There are 100 billion possible combinations of sounds this app can play to help you get to sleep. It mixes quotes, music, tones, and sound effects to make a soothing white noise sound track that helps you get to sleep. You can set the sounds to play from ten to sixty minutes.

4. Relax & Rest Guided Meditations

For the restless insomniacs that need more than white noise or soothing melodies to relax, this app guides you through meditations to help promote relaxation and calm you into sleep. The app helps you concentrate on breathing and letting go of the stress of the day while accompanied by nature sounds or music.

5. Sleep Soundly Hypnosis

There are plenty of nature sounds and white noise sleep apps but this one stands out for its hypnotherapy. The sessions are narrated by Kym Tolson who is a licensed hypnotherapist. In addition to getting to sleep, she also has sessions that can help you quit bad habits or form good ones such as stopping biting your nails or forming better study habits.

Client Reviews

"Great staff, they make you feel so at home. Every medical facility should be this nice. Felt like a nice hotel. Someone has great taste in decorating. Thanks for making us feel at home."

"I was especially impressed with Andrew the Respiratory Therapist who reviewed my study with me and answered my questions. Andrew thoroughly explained everything about the Cpap machine-from start to finish. I never felt rushed and was assured I could contact him with any additional questions or needs. Andrew told me he would follow up with a call in a week and he did. I believe this center performed the study appropriately and the added benefit of having Andrew teach me about the machine and what to expect was a bonus."

"I recommend them highly!! I took my 2 year old daughter for a sleep study and was very impressed. Our sleep technician was amazing with her, very patient and kind. The DVD we brought to watch while getting her hooked up got stuck in the TV and they vowed to return it. We got a call the next day checking on our daughter and saying how sweet she was, they mentioned the DVD. Several days later, we received the DVD plus a new copy of the Lion King with a nice note. They are very good at what they do and if they can make a 2 year old feel at ease, they can probably do the same with anyone!!"
