Editors' reviewThis application offers techniques and exercises for the purpose of inducing sleep; however, not all of the exercise sequence is available during the trial. Sleep Well for Desktop PC's basic interface is only composed of a few guidelines on how to achieve a good sleep and a button marked Sleep, which launches your media player and plays audio of relaxation procedures. A soothing male voice directs you in breathing techniques and a series of exercises in this audio file, which runs for more than eight minutes during the trial. We would have liked for images to be included to make sure we're following along properly. Also, if you're seeking interactivity, this click-once-and-run program may not meet your needs. Though the trial version offers only half of the promised 15-minute audio exercises, those with sleep problems will find the trial sufficient to determine if this will work for them.
Having hard time falling asleep? Try this prerecorded audio relaxation technique that was used for over three thousand years. The Sleep Well software includes 15 minutes of breathing exercise and awareness rotation that was shown to be effective in alleviating insomnia. Lay down on your back, spread feet slightly, arms alongside of the body, palms are lying down on top of one another covering ether the solar plexus.
Make sure you are comfortable and have no unnecessary tension as you prepare to begin the sequence. Place the PDA on the pillow, click the Sleep button and follow the directions of your personal relaxation trainer to fall asleep fast. The software can also be used for relaxation during the day. No headphones necessary. After the user falls asleep the PDA is turned off automatically.
