If getting to the Land of Nod is a daily struggle, sleep apps, when used correctly, can be hugely effective. Sleepio was created by Colin Espie, professor of sleep medicine at the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Oxford, and follows an evidence-based CBT sleep improvement programme. Once a week, you log on for a personalised 20-minute session with ?the prof?, and learn a range of cognitive and behavioural techniques to help you sleep. You then practise those techniques during the week. This digital sleep programme aids recovery not only from insomnia, but also from depression and anxiety, according to an informal NHS study. This takes time and technique practice, but is one of the best out there.
