If you own a smartphone like an iPhone, you’ll know all about the hundreds of apps available that have been designed to make your life a little easier in one way or another. There’s an app for everything these days and it’s amazing how reliant we are on them already.
Apps can be used in really creative ways – whatever your problem you can be sure that there is an app to solve it. And if insomnia is your problem then you will be desperate for ideas to cure it. After all, trying to operate without sleep has a massive impact on your life.
There is nothing more frustrating than lying in bed at night, totally shattered, but unable to catch sleep. You can drive yourself mad with it until you are so wired that there’s no chance of a snooze. And so the circle continues…
Sleeping Aid Apps
You may not have thought about using technology to help you sleep, but one quick look will show you a myriad of different apps, all promising to deliver you the sleep you so desperately need. We take a look at some of the key features here:
Most sleep apps provide really soothing music that you can play really quietly by your bedside. It’s so relaxing and unobtrusive that your partner won’t mind it on in the distance. Slow and mellow melodies send you into a trance until your brain is able to switch off.
Another feature of some sleep apps is that they can teach you some self-hypnosis techniques. Some have professional and expert hypnotisers recorded talking you through them to help you nod off. They will make your mind wander to a relaxing place where you can forget all your daily worries.
Similar to hypnosis, some apps teach you how to meditate. This is an activity you should do while you’re awake and it is the process of stepping away from your thoughts to achieve a quiet mind.
Many people rely on alcohol to get themselves to sleep. This is a dangerous habit to get into and it’s really easily avoided. Download an app to help you sleep and you will achieve quality sleep without compromising your health. And you’ll wake up fresh and ready for action!
