Regular sleep is extremely important for the proper functioning of our body. If you want to improve its comfort, various applications come with help. Check our suggestions!
Lack of regular sleep can cause weight gain, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, heart disease or stroke. In addition, sleeping less than 7 hours can cause poorer immune system function, as well as lower cognitive abilities and increase the risk of accidents. Promoting regular sleep patterns and healthy habits is called sleep hygiene
Sleep hygiene methods include going to bed and getting up at the same time each day, avoiding large meals, caffeine and alcohol before bed, and eliminating nicotine altogether. Using special sleep improvement apps can also help you achieve optimal results when it comes to sleep.
Whether you’re simply curious about tracking your sleep or you want your sleep to be of better quality, special apps for your phone can help you. However, keep in mind that apps are only a small support and will not solve your problem
Moreover, few apps provide users with information about the risks of sleep deprivation, such as diabetes, obesity, depression and high blood pressure. However, sleep tracking apps are developing every day, so it is possible that they will soon be very effective in the fight against insomnia.
Currently, researchers from around the world are working on an app that would help in the fight against sleep apnea. Such an app would test and diagnose obstructive sleep apnea using the sounds we make. Some of these experimental technologies can distinguish between simple, non-pathological snoring and snoring associated with sleep apnea. Until these apps go mainstream, talk to your doctor if you are bothered by sleep apnea.
Relax Melodies is an app that was designed to work with a community of 35 million other users to help you say goodbye to insomnia and sleep through the night. If you have trouble relaxing while you sleep, this is the app for you.
The app lets you choose relaxing sounds and also add nature sounds to it. Combine the whole thing with a melody and you’re done – your sleepy melody has just been created and can help you fall asleep. You can also choose a special meditation to put you to sleep
In addition to creating your own mixes, you can access melodies shared by the Relax Melodies community to discover new combinations of sounds. Integrating your favorite songs from your music library with the sound layers available in the app is also possible, so you can listen to your favorite music in combination with soothing sounds.
Sleep Cycle tracks and analyzes your sleep patterns. Choose your wake-up time and the app will gently rouse you from sleep during your lightest sleep phase so you wake up rested and ready for the day ahead. The phone’s built-in microphone picks up your movements as you sleep, using sound and vibration analysis. The app analyzes the data to determine if you are in light sleep, deep sleep, or a sleep state known as random eye movement (REM) sleep, and determines the optimal time to wake you up within the 30-minute window you set.
The app also displays statistics in the form of graphs and analysis of sleep phases, and the “Trends” section shows percentage sleep quality and sleep and wake times, and can even detect, track and measure snoring. Monitoring your sleep with Sleep Cycle is easy, hassle-free and can get you up with renewed energy.
Some people find it hard to relax during the day and go for a nap. Pzizz is a sleep app that combines music, sound effects and differential rumblings to help you relax. Pzizz uses an algorithm to generate a slightly different soundtrack each time you use it, but the sounds are similar enough that your mind associates them with sleep. This will help you relax and fall asleep.
Like the Sleep ++ app, Sleep Tracker ++ works with your Apple Watch to sync your sleep data. You can also adjust the watch’s sensitivity and sensors to make tracking data more accurate. In the app, you can add notes and hashtags to your sleep patterns to identify where you may need to improve your sleep behavior or take action to make your sleep quality better.
