Hi dear friend:

If you are reading this article, you are probably needing help to slow down, relax or get a good night sleep. Despite there being some disagreement on the exact amount of hours each individual should sleep each night, as this would vary according to their genetics.

There is a consensus by all National Institutes of Health suggesting that we should get between 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night.

Lack of sleep affects our mood, our appetite, our performance and in general our wellbeing. This is why I have gathered a list of some of the Best Apps for relaxation and better sleep.

These Apps have helped me when needing to calm down during my break at work, after a stressful day mostly at work and when needing to rest and calm down in order to have a good night sleep.

I have used this app almost every night for many years. The pace of life and change can be overwhelming and it is important to take the time to relax and unwind. This App will guide you through the relaxation process and you can have it running as long as you need it. You can program the length so that it can be on loop during the whole night and you can choose if you want more music than voice, the music that soothes you best and if you want it to wake you up at the end or not.
