6 clever apps to help you sleep and relax

Knowing how to relax and unwind in the modern world often takes modern solutions. This is where sleep and relaxation apps come in handy.

6 clever apps to help you sleep and relax

From science-backed sleep sounds to bite-sized meditation sessions, we’ve rounded up the 6 best apps for relaxation and sleep.

For when you want to relax…



By far one of the most popular relaxation apps on the market, Headspace has earned its reputation as one of the best apps for relaxation and meditation.

With a beautifully-designed user interface, the app guides you through the basics of meditation and mindfulness. Courses range from bite-sized meditations to full courses covering everything from stress to sleep.

It charges a monthly subscription price, but at the moment, Headspace is offering a free subscription for people in the UK and US who are unemployed due to the pandemic.


Another popular choice when it comes to relaxation apps, Calm is designed to help you unwind, de-stress and sleep better.

Boasting a full suite of features, you can also use it to improve focus and even build healthy eating habits.

The great thing about this app is that it’s super customizable, letting you do everything from adjusting the voice of the meditation guide to changing the type of background music.

Ten Percent Happier

Named Apple’s ‘Best of 2018’ app, Ten Percent Happier is made for people who “want to sleep better, be more mindful, improve your relationships, and become just about ten percent happier.”

One of the best apps for relaxation for people on the go, it features a library of over 500 guided meditations, videos, talks and sleep content to help you maintain a mindful practice.


For when you want to sleep…

Dark Noise

There are plenty of ambient noise apps out there, but Dark Noise is by far one of the best sounding and looking.

With a sleek dark design, Dark Noise lets you choose from a whole host of ambient sounds that are perfect for sleep, concentration and blocking out background noise.

In addition to the white, pink, brown and grey noise options, it features loads of nature sounds, urban and human sounds.


Pzizz uses the science of psychoacoustics to “help you fall asleep fast, stay asleep, and wake up feeling refreshed.”

These “dreamscapes” are designed by humans and made by algorithms to create the most optimal sounds for sleep.

It features over 100 billion sequences to experience and over time, learning the kinds of sounds you like and dislike over time to create the best sleep experience.


For people who like a more storytelling approach to sleep sounds, Slumber is the app for you.

Working with top meditation teachers, Slumber’s creators have designed its sleep app to include stories and meditations as well as soundscapes and music to help you fall asleep.

Choose from a fairytale story, the sounds of a babbling brook or guided muscle relaxation to gently guide you to sleep.
