RISE (iOS AND AN­DROID – FREE WITH IN APP PUR­CHASES)

Llanelli Star - - TECH NOW -

WE’RE just about kneedeep in apps to help you sleep – who knew this was such a mas­sive prob­lem?

The lat­est kid on the block is Rise, from the mak­ers of Peak Brain Train­ing, a good pedi­gree.

So, aside from a swish look and some lovely ty­pog­ra­phy, what does Rise have to of­fer?

Its mak­ers ar­gue that no one tech­nique can help ev­ery­body, so no fewer than four dif­fer­ent meth­ods of sleep as­sis­tance are in­cluded, all backed up by “science”.

Mind­ful­ness med­i­ta­tion, ac­cep­tance and commitment ther­apy, pro­gres­sive mus­cle re­lax­ation, and guided

im­agery, are all used to cre­ate a pro­gramme to help you get a good sleep.

I have no idea if it works, of course, I have trou­ble stay­ing awake most of the time. Good thing, then, that Rise of­fers a sev­en­day free trial so you can find out for your­self. It’ll cost you £48.99-a-year to keep us­ing af­ter the trial.
