A new trend in science and technology is making it easier than ever to track your sleeping and learn how to sleep better. Sleep apps have become widely available and help you see how your current mattress could be negatively impacting your sleep cycle. Other apps include soothing sounds and colors to help you relax and clear your mind before bedtime.

Pzizz

This unique app uses gentle sounds to ease you into sleep at night. Unlike other apps, it generates its own sounds and music using algorithms. This way you never end up with the same old song or playlist keeping you awake. In fact, it starts working with virtually no setup.

Sleep Cycle

Sleep Cycle is a revolutionary app that tracks your movements and sounds while measuring your sleep activity. Using this information, it maps out your typical sleep cycle and identifies when you are at your deepest sleep and when you are in a light-sleep phase. You can use Sleep Cycle as an alarm clock to wake you up when you are in a light-sleep phase, which is a better way to wake up than being jarred awake during deep sleep.

DigiPill

DigiPill is a unique app designed to help you meditate. The app prescribes you digital pills, which are really just a series of exercises and meditation devices to help you sleep better. The digi-pills come in a variety of types including stress relief, deep sleep, etc. You can mix and match your favorites to get results.

Other Apps

Aside from these three favorites, there also are a number of apps that allow you to build your own relaxation playlists, set special alarms with nature sounds, listen to white noise or enjoy the soothing colors of different landscapes and images. Many of them are available to download for free and have additional features with a premium purchase.
