I am sure that there is a connection to a creative person and how much they sleep in a given night. I have always been an early riser but lately I get up in the middle of the night and that is pretty much it. I have NO problem falling asleep…but to stay asleep is always a challenge. I have tried so many things, I thought I would find some apps to see if that will give me some relief:

Power Sleep & Nap | AmbiScience™

This was attractive to me from the reviews: Never slept better, this is the best, etc..It looks like it gives you a bunch of options.

Sleep Cycles

My best friend is obsessed with this app. I know that I dont sleep at all and very well at any time….so I am not sure that I would like to know exactly how bad I do or do not rest.

Once again this is proving that this blog is NOT for me. This is a good app for people that can lay after being awake and will themselves back to sleep. I envy you more than you know. My mind would be a million miles a minute.

As you can see, these are just a sprinkling of the tons of apps that will help you get your Z’s…here are some other options:

Remember the Milk-I have talked about this app before but I bring it up again because I think it would be a good idea to look at your to do list for the next day and make a plan. That would clear your head and give you some relaxation.

Spotify-Sometimes when I travel I just put in one of favorite albums and go to bed. When I wake up in the middle of the night, when watching TV or moving to another area isn’t a possibility…some old school John Mayer. Make a playlist for bed, and maybe for the middle of the night.

Essential Oils-Many oils can give you a calm and peaceful sense that should ensure some ZZZ’s. I am a big fan and use my friend Shanti Aromatherapy, (who is reasonable and amazing) and all her sleepy blends. There is also an app for that.

By the way, Pinterest, Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook are sometimes mind numbing ways to get you back to bed.

What works for you?
