Sleep Apps for Your Phone
If you have trouble turning off your brain when you try to go to sleep at night, perhaps an app on your phone could help you. Helpline.com lists a number of different apps for iPhone and Android phones. Some apps have soothing sounds. Others guide you through a short meditation. Another one can track your sleep cycles and adjust your alarm time so you are awakened during a light phase of your sleep, rather than when you are in a deep sleep. Helpline does not endorse any of the apps, but there are ratings on the website for each app. Prices range from free to $4.99. For some people it helps to talk with a counselor, who is an objective person with, perhaps, a different perspective to help you sort out all those thoughts in your head. The EAP offers short term, free counseling to employees and their family members. For more information call 410.328.5860 to set up an appointment, or email us through this website.
