People across the world suffer from insomnia. There are many tips and tricks to help those who lack sleep get more, but a lot of these are easier said than done. Several iOS apps are available to help people sleep better and to relax, but it’s just so hard to find one that isn’t a gimmick and actually works. One of the newest sleep apps to hit the App Store is Sleepora, and it’s more than just an app. It’s a sleep program that offers a solution to help those who suffer from insomnia.
When Sleepora is first opened, a message pops up with a list of instructions to help users complete the sleep program. The app suggests that users start with the eBook first. The eBook is loaded with six chapters and over 100 pages that feature information like how to form a healthy sleep habit, ways to feel more energetic, tips to stop racing thoughts and audio tracks to help users relax.
After users read throughtheeBook, the next step is to set outcomes and goals. This is completed by filling out a questionnaire. After that step is completed, users will then move on to creating their Sleepora plan. The plans include audio and exercises designed for insomnia relief and stress recovery. Users can pick a plan and even personalize it. Once the plan is saved, users will then receive exercise alerts. If an exercise is missed, the app provides users with the opportunity to go back and complete it later.
As progress is made, the app stores all the information in a tracker so users can see their progress in hopes of getting closer to their sleep goals. It continues to guide and help users for as long as they need, until they are finally achieving normal sleep patterns.
There’s a lot packed into Sleepora. In order for users to get the most benefit from the app it’s essential to continue the exercises, fill out the forms, read the guides, and continue to track results. Users who don’t take the time out of their day to provide all this information and perform the exercises won’t benefit from what the app offers. Additionally, it can be hard for anyone to shell out $59.99 for an app to help them sleep. Those who are skeptical can try Sleepora Free.
All in all, users who suffer from insomnia may consider trying Sleepora out if all other methods have failed. It’s advised to ask your doctor before attempting a sleep program, and to ensure that the insomnia isn’t health related. This is one of the better sleep apps that I have seen available as it provides many solutions and doesn’t focus on one area like meditation, hypnosis, or white noise. It’s a comprehensive sleep program that some might find worthy of exploring.
