What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia?
This short video from our partners at PsychHub helps to explain what Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is.
iSleep Easy contains a range of guided meditations to help users fall asleep and sleep better. There are four opening meditations (each is about five minutes in length) and four main meditations (each about ten minutes long). Users can customize the background sound, voice volume and sound volume of each audio track. There are also two ‘special’ meditations; one designed to be used if one wakes up in the middle of the night, and the other which allows the user to combine a custom mix of nature sounds and music. In the ‘Playlists’ section, users can create their own playlists using a combination of audio tracks, or use one of the preset playlists (‘relax into sleep’, ‘deep sleep’, and ‘letting go’). There are also sleep tips advising how to create a more relaxing sleeping environment.
