The best apps to help you get a good night’s sleepPosted on 23/08/2017 by Jess O'Connor
Getting enough sleep each night will help you study from home, especially if you’re juggling study with part-time work or parenting. A proper sleep will allow you to concentrate for longer and get the most out of your study time.
That said, sometimes a good night’s sleep is easier said than done, so here are a few handy apps to help you drift off to dreamland.
With a claim to fame as the ‘World’s most scientifically advanced sleep app’, Sleep Genius was originally created to help astronauts fall asleep. The main function of the app is to train you to fall asleep with specially designed music and sounds, which then help to guide your brain through each stage of the sleep cycle for a longer, deeper sleep.
The app also offers a power nap function and a 30-minute relaxation program.
It’s recommended that you put down your phone as soon as you get into bed, as the blue light emitted from your cellphone screen suppresses melatonin, which keeps you awake.
F.lux is clever little app that recognises that many of us aren’t able to simply put down our phones right away.
When you use F.lux, it will adjust the colour of your screen to a warmer hue, so you’ll be able to catch up on social media and news from your phone before bed – without stopping your body’s natural process of shutting down for the night.
There’s nothing quite like falling asleep as rain pounds on your windows, but it’s a rare treat at best.
With Sleepmaker Rain, you can hit the play button and listen to the soothing sounds of rain ‘onto concrete’, ‘with trickling puddles’, or ‘rain against windows’. There are even options for medium and heavy downpours, so you can find the sound that best works for you.
