What We’re Loving: Sleep

How Doing Nothing Can Improve Your Life

Sleep requires nothing at all. And more of it can increase our quality of life and work. It’s so easy. So why don’t we do it more?

Are You Getting Enough Sleep? 

Don’t worry about the age-old debate of whether six, seven, or eight hours is best. Every person is different, and so are their needs. 

Only you know if you’re slouching on your snoozing. But chances are you could probably use a few more hours per week. 

We’ll save you the evidence-based arguments and just say we’ve enjoyed a few tracking apps that have helped us think differently about rest.


Rise Sleep Tracking AppThis sleek app is powered by a bottomless supply of insights into bedtime routines. It also emphasizes everyone’s varying schedules and needs, so you don’t feel forced into a routine that doesn’t work for you. 

And the best part is the way it gamifies sleep to make users want to erase their sleep debt. 

Auto Sleep

AutoSleep sleep tracking app.

This app is less about user experience and more about charts and graphs. AutoSleep monitors all sorts of metrics to help users understand their health and habits to pursue better sleep.

And similar to RISE, AutoSleep tracks debt in a way that helps users plan ahead to stay rested. 

Make It Easy

We are almost all more irritable when we’re tired. So next time you’re wondering if you should tap, “next episode,” or load up the XBOX, remember that tomorrow could be easier. And you could be easier to live and work with. So go to bed.
