On average, we spend a third of our lives asleep. You’d expect that we’d be pretty good at it by now. Unfortunately, that is not the case. People lose sleep for all sorts of reasons, from work pressure to money woes.
For those who need a little help, there’s Pillow, a sleep management app. It’s like having a personal slumber butler who’s eager to assist in your bedtime endeavours.
It Helps You Fall Asleep 💤
Routine is key to sleeping well. Pillow reminds you to go to bed at a preset time or the optimal time. If you’ve sat up in bed reading, eaten late, or had a pre-bed coffee, Pillow has a Notes function that lets you add remarks to keep the app informed. This way it can more accurately assess your sleep cycle and determine what is most contributing to your insomnia.
Another nice-to-have is the Sleep Aid function. There you’ll find a range of soothing sounds to lull you to sleep. What’s better is once Pillow detects that you’re out, it turns off the sound automatically.
Sleep Quality Analysis
People are often ignorant of the quality of their own sleep. With Pillow, you can track your sleep using Apple Watch (Theatre Mode recommended) or your iPhone on your nightstand (works with Airplane Mode on).
The Optimal Sleeping Suggestions
I ne next day, Pillow’s Smart Wake Up function will pick the best time to wake you. While you’re having breakfast, you can read a detailed report on your sleep last night. Find out exactly how much you slept and its quality – light, deep or REM. Alternatively, you can also enter how you felt waking up as a record for the app and yourself.
Of course, there’s only so much one night’s worth of data can do for you. That’s why Pillow can track your data over a period of time and use it to advise you on how to sleep better. Occasionally, it will also give you sleep-related trivia and little tips to build better sleep habits.
For those who wish to improve sleep quality, having this app is a good start. So go ahead, knook yourself out!
