It may be recommended that we have eight hours of uninterrupted ‘beauty sleep’ per night but in reality many of us rarely achieve this and millions of people in the UK alone suffer from chronic insomnia.
If you have tried everything, from counting sleep to putting lavender on your pillow to having a hot mug of cocoa before bed, and still can’t seem to nod off, you may be interested in being informed about five great sleep apps to help overcome insomnia.
Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock
This innovative sleep app traces and analyses your sleep patterns, including when you are awake, dreaming or in a deep sleep, with the aim of waking you up at the most suitable time in your sleep cycle so that you feel refreshed for the rest day ahead.
Long Deep Breathing
Focusing solely on breathing as a means to promoting sleep, this anti-insomnia app works on bringing the average breathes of 12 – 16 times per minute down significantly so that the ‘mind is calmed’ and better you are better prepared for falling asleep and staying asleep until morning.
With a ‘reassuring’ and soothing voice and a range of sounds designed to slow your breathing down, the Pzizz Sleep app reportedly works wonders in gently drifting you off to sleep.
What has been referred to as ‘one of the best sleep apps in existence’, Pzizz Sleep is designed to work your mind rather than your ears.
The aSleep 3 app provides desperate insomniacs with some clever tools designed to help people sleep. These sleep-aid tools include soothing sounds that are related to nature, chromotherpapy, a snore detector and an alarm clock – although you would expect a snore detector and alarm clock would help prevent sleep rather than aid it! – Nonetheless aSleep 3 is reported to be one best sleep apps.
