When was the last time you fell asleep and stayed asleep? We have a serious problem – only about 35% of people are getting the recommended 7 hours of sleep a night, and now thanks to our tech-dependent lifestyles some experts are saying that we actually need more like 8.5 hours of sleep to make up for all that digital screen time. We are beaming blue lights right into our brains all day and it’s starting to take a toll. It’s time to use that technology for good – to help us get better sleep.
Currently, there are several apps and podcasts that can help with sleep hypnosis and guided meditation in order to relax and calm the mind and get us into better shape sleep-wise. They include:
The Sleep Well Hypnosis App – a daily 25-minute audio app that helps to let go of the stress of the day and fall asleep
The Sleep Daily App – guided relaxation and positive thought pattern training
Harmony Hypnosis – verbal and nonverbal hypnosis to help you fall asleep
