Trouble Sleeping? 10 Best Sleep Apps That You Gotta Try
By: EzySleep

Introduction

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “more than a third of American adults are not getting enough sleep on a regular basis, according to a new study in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.” The American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the Sleep Research Society recommend that, “adults aged 18–60 years sleep at least 7 hours each night to promote optimal health and well-being.”

If someone sleeps less than seven hours per day it can wreak havoc on our health.

There is an increased risk of developing chronic conditions including obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and frequent mental distress.

This is why developing healthy sleeping habits will benefit our lives and health immensely. There are many steps we can take to help us sleep throughout the day such as a healthy diet, and exercise which reduces stress and anxiety.

However, there are plenty of tools to use at night and that’s where sleep apps come in. Sleep apps are becoming increasingly popular and more advanced.

With so many sleep apps on the market, it can be difficult to choose which one is the most helpful. Below are the 10 best sleep apps that will get you snoozing in no time. 

DigiPill

According Brian Colbert, leading expert in NLP, and psychoacoustic director of Digipill, ”Each Digipill has been uniquely formulated using specific blends of sound and language to gently engage and activate more of the mind.

This makes it easier to bring about change, build new habits, and promote an overall sense of wellbeing." Digipill has been featured in msn, Yahoo! Anderson Live and more.

Digipill uses unique techniques inside carefully crafted audio 'pills' which typically play for around half an hour yet the effects can last longer.

There are various ‘pills’ that help face whatever issue you are dealing with such as closure prescribed for moving on, stop smoking prescribed for a longer life, and fear of flying prescribed for a calm journey.

Summary


Wayne Giles, M.D., director of CDC’s Division of Population Health states, “As a nation we are not getting enough sleep.” She explains, “Lifestyle changes such as going to bed at the same time each night; rising at the same time each morning; and turning off or removing televisions, computers, mobile devices from the bedroom, can help people get the healthy sleep they need.”

Although this may seem challenging to those who have trouble sleeping, setting goals and habits can assist with developing healthy sleeping patterns.

That is why sleep apps can be so helpful to whether you want to track sleep, or simply listen to the soundscapes, there’s an app for you.

When the sleep apps are running, consider turning your phone on "do not disturb" and lower the brightness on the screen.

Happy sleeping!



Mattress Accessories

I should also mention some accessories you may need with your mattress to optimize your sleep experience:

EzySleep Mattress Box Spring

Box Spring - A sturdy foundation often made of wood that evenly distributes the weight of the mattress so it retains its integrity and also evenly distributes the full weight throughout the bed.

Bed Frame - Usually made of either metal or wood, it's a frame that elevates the mattress off the ground. Sometimes it will require a box spring but many platform bed frames are available on which you can just put the mattress directly.
