10 Sleep Apps to Download for a Better Night’s Rest
From guided meditations to relaxing sleep sounds, these apps will help you relax your body and mind.
As a nation, we’re not getting enough sleep. According to a 2016 study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in three adults in the United States is not able to get the recommended seven hours a night of peaceful shut-eye, which can actually have a major impact on health and overall well-being. But sometimes, no matter what you do to fix your sleep schedule and catch up on some much-needed z’s, training your body to get enough rest remains a tricky and sometimes frustrating process.
If you’re not able to hire a sleep coach or another health professional to help you on your way to a better night’s sleep, there are plenty of sleep apps (with both free and paid-for, subscription-based versions) that use the power of technology to help you fall asleep, track your sleep cycles, and stay informed about your body and what it needs. Next time you find yourself tossing and turning, try one of these apps to get a better night’s rest. Sweet dreams!
