Irvine, CA based Hard Drive Recovery Associates (HDRA), a leading expert in data safety and recovery, has published a new article that highlights how installing the right apps on computing devices can help a user sleep easier. With fears circulating on COVID-19 and how it will impact both health and a person’s financial future, this has never been more important.
Waking in the middle of the night in a panic without knowing why has never been more prevalent than during the current pandemic. While there are many fears that occupy a given individual’s thoughts throughout the day, such fears tend to impact the ability of many to sleep through the night and get the rest they need to meet the challenges they face the next day. Lack of essential rest can impact concentration, affect coordination and cause emotions to run high, for instance, adding further stress and strain in these uncertain times.
HDRA has summarized some of the leading apps they recommend for helping anyone get more of the rest they need. Those looking for recommendations will appreciate saving a lot of time and effort they would otherwise need to spend finding something that suits their needs. Getting sufficient sleep is vital, and all their recommendations can help anyone ensure that they get a deeper, more restful sleep.
The first app HDRA recommends is Calm, an app that can be accessed on multiple devices and is available on both iOS (Apple) and Android mobile devices. They state that Calm’s ‘sleep stories’ are effective for many people, helping them gently ease into an easy slumber. Calm has an additional subscription service for those who want a wider variety of these stories and other features.
Those who are looking for sounds rather than stories may want to check out HDRA’s recommended app for this purpose: Prizz. The application uses psychoacoustics (the psychological effects of sound) to treat insomnia. Prizz can help put users to sleep using any of their sleep sounds, which can be custom mixed and incorporate voiceovers and other music. However, following the trial period, there is a monthly subscription charge.
Sleep Sounds is another straightforward application that provides a variety of background noises to help people fall asleep. It also allows users to mix sounds. Sleep Sounds is currently only available on Android, and ads can be removed for a fee of $1 per month.
HDRA rounds out their recommendations by highlighting that Spotify, one of the world’s leading music streaming services, is also a great application to use to help sleep better. They recommend searching for sleep playlists, which are available in virtually every music genre to be given a wide range of curated playlists. Of course, people may also create a personalized playlist of their own.
While there is no doubt that the current pandemic has disrupted sleep patterns for billions of people around the globe, the recommendations HDRA have made can help anyone find the best way to get eight hours of restful sleep. These four recommendations, Calm, Prizz, Sleep Sounds and Spotify provide something for everyone’s individual preference and help them relax as they drift off into a restful sleep. Some of these apps even have timers so that they can be switched off automatically.
Anyone interested in reading the complete article is invited to explore the HDRA website. There, they will find a wide variety of useful information, including a recent blog post on how COVID-19 initially affected the tech industry and the possible effects the pandemic will have on the tech industry and the global economy in the future.
HDRA published their recommendations because the last thing anyone needs right now is more stress trying to decide which of the thousands of apps available can be trusted and which ones also work well for them. Although the COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented event, HDRA is pleased to offer their assistance and expertise to all those who need it.
