Sleep plays a major role in our mental and physical health, so it makes sense that many wellness apps would include sleep hygiene as part of their offerings. However, if you’re looking for a solution for better sleep, it’s important to focus on choosing a program that is focused solely on improving sleep. If you have sleep issues, they can’t be resolved with general advice and tips. Often, it takes a dedicated sleep program to help you develop better habits so you can fall asleep naturally.
In the not too distant past, the only options for those facing insomnia or chronic sleep problems were to take over-the-counter sleeping pills, visit an in-person sleep specialist, or lay awake at night. Those solutions come with costs and risks, be it waking up groggy from taking melatonin, or spending anywhere from $1,000 to $7,000 for a sleep study.
Digital innovation has provided more solutions for both sleep concerns like never feeling rested and sleep disorders like insomnia. Insomnia apps tend to fall into a few categories:
Everyone is different, so no single app will work for everyone, but there are some key considerations you should take into account when looking for a digital solution for your insomnia. Many insomnia apps are actually wellness programs—sleep may be part of their app, but typically they offer general wellness tracking and advice on other areas. Others are supplement focused, with medication being their core solution to sleep concerns.
For example, people sometimes choose Cerebral as their solution for better sleep, but this isn’t what Cerebral focuses on. Cerebral is an online service for prescription medication and therapy to help with depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders. While Cerebral does list insomnia on its website, this isn’t its primary offering. Plus, medications and supplements aren’t the ideal way to deal with insomnia. Similarly, Proper combines supplements with sleep coaching, but limits coaching to only six weeks, meaning supplements are the long-term solution.
Another popular app, SleepSpace, offers a number of metrics for tracking your sleep, resources for learning about how to sleep better, and options to talk to a sleep coach. While these can be useful, both the metrics and the coaching are largely one-size-fits-all, with no personalization to your sleep needs.
With the wide range of sleep apps and sleep programs out there, it’s important to know how Sleep Reset works and what makes our program different. To start, we’ll have you take a brief assessment to determine your problems with sleep and any issues you might be having, along with taking a look at your lifestyle and other factors that could be affecting your sleep quality. Once we have your assessment, we can design a sleep program to address your specific sleep issues. In addition to creating a personalized sleep program for you, we’ll assign you a dedicated sleep coach who will be available throughout your sleep program.
Sleep Reset’s methods are based on cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia or CBT-I, which has been proven to be effective in helping individuals fall asleep faster, awaken fewer times throughout the night, and wake up feeling refreshed.
Our program is also designed to be easy for you to follow. You’ll get a week-by-week program, bite-sized sleep science lessons, resources for relaxation techniques, and so much more. You can even link Sleep Reset to your Apple Health app to provide your sleep coach with even more health metrics.
Choosing Sleep Reset over other sleep apps is an easy decision when you see the benefits Sleep Reset can offer. Many sleep apps are just wellness apps that treat sleep as a tertiary metric. Sleep Reset is specifically focused on offering a sleep program to help you get better sleep for life, instead of scattering the focus on other wellness metrics.
People choose Sleep Reset because it offers the benefits of a sleep clinic from home, it gives you the time you need to learn and change your sleep habits, and it’s affordable. In-person sleep clinics are much more expensive than Sleep Reset and often require you to get on a waitlist that could take months. Sleep Reset is an at-home solution that costs a fraction of an in-person clinic.
One of the chief benefits of Sleep Reset is that it teaches you to adjust your sleep habits in a noninvasive, sustainable way. Part of achieving this means that Sleep Reset doesn’t use sleep aids like sleeping pills or melatonin as part of the program. These sleep aids can create dependencies, causing individuals to rely on them to fall asleep. In addition to that, sleep aids often come with side effects. One of the most significant side effects is waking up feeling tired and groggy. When you can fall asleep and stay asleep naturally and stick to a sleep schedule, you can wake up feeling refreshed. This is what Sleep Reset offers.
Sleep Reset is a comprehensive sleep program that is personalized to your sleep needs while also providing you with a one-on-one sleep coach. Our sleep coaches are real sleep experts who have years of experience helping address a variety of sleep issues. Your coach will be assigned to you based on your lifestyle, your sleep issues, and their experience working with your specific sleep problems. This ensures you’re matched with someone who will give you the best chance of getting better sleep.
You’ll meet your sleep coach through an introductory video call. After that, they’ll be available throughout the duration of your sleep program through text. Your sleep coach will check in often, make adjustments as necessary, and provide you with ongoing guidance, motivation, and accountability.
