Why use apps to improve sleep?
As you know, good quality sleep involves adopting a healthy lifestyle, a balanced diet and a stress-free lifestyle. Many apps to sleep well are now available on Android and iPhone to help you fall asleep, better understand and follow your sleep cycles or simply relax before bedtime.
If they do not represent a miracle solution to better sleep, these sleep apps are easy and fun to use.
