Improve Sleep

Sleep better with iRest

Your body and mind know how to fall into deep and nourishing sleep. iRest gives you simple tools to revive these natural abilities, improving your capacity for sleep and enhancing the quality of the sleep you get.

How does iRest improve sleep? Practicing iRest can help you fall asleep more easily and experience more restful sleep throughout the night. If you wake during the night, following the steps of iRest can induce the deep relaxation needed to get back to sleep. During the day, iRest ‘naps’ of only 10 or 20 minutes can help you fall into short periods of restful sleep, so you awaken refreshed and ready for the rest of your day.

Research shows that people with sleep problems who practice iRest experience more time asleep than those using other methods. Whether insomnia or sleep deprivation are the result of life’s daily demands, shift work, parenting young children, health problems, anxiety, trauma, or any other condition, iRest can help.
