It's common to say that you're tired when someone asks how you are. Falling asleep can be hard enough. Staying asleep can be even harder. And it's rare to wake up and not want to sleep longer.
Shleep analyzes environmental factors, your habits, and how much or well you're currently sleeping to help you have more consistent, healthy sleeping patterns.
The app's avatar, Shleepy the Sheep, starts with a questionnaire. How much do you sleep during a weeknight? A weekend? What situations make you feel sleepy? Shleepy will also ask what you hope to get out of the app.
After you finish the questions, Shleep generates a sleep score out of 100 percent, 100 being the best. When I took the test, my sleep score was 43 percent (yikes).
To help, Shleep recommended sessions about on stress and how devices affect sleep. Dr. Els van der Helm, sleep coach and founder of Shleep, narrates the short videos in the app, explaining how certain habits might be making sleep difficult.
The app has six main modules with 10 sessions that further break down the topic. Shleep suggests one session per day so you can focus on small changes. The app includes tools to track your progress over time.
The app gives you one session per module for free; the rest are locked until you subscribe to the app. Subscriptions span 9 euros ($10) monthly, 60 euros ($68) for a year, and 329 euros ($379) for a lifetime subscription.
