Tech Gadgets and Apps to Help You Sleep When Travelling


Sometimes it can be hard enough to sleep well when you’re at home, but if you’re staying with family or friends, it can be even more difficult, particularly if it’s a room you haven’t slept in before. Here are some tips to help you fall asleep when you’re staying in someone else’s home.


Lull Yourself to Sleep

Alarm Clock for Me app is not just alarm clock; it will also play your favorite tunes with a sleep timer so you can lull yourself to sleep gradually. This is great for insomniacs. When you want to make sure you’re going to get up on time, you can set the app to play music to gently stir you from sleep so you can start your day in the right mood. Other features include a choice of two designer clocks, up to date local weather information, auto-launch and a built-in flashlight.



Monitor Your Sleeping Habits

While you are sleeping, Beddit utilizes the latest in sleep cycle technology to monitor your sleeping pattern so you can enjoy optimal rest. It uses cutting edge technology to transmit data from a sensor under your sheet, to a mobile app. The app measures cardio and respiratory functions, how long you sleep, how long it takes you to sleep and if and when you snore. It also monitors bedroom temperature and humidity, so you can see what changes you need to make to improve your sleep cycle.


White Noise Generator

If you’re the kind of person that is unable to go to sleep without white noise, this app it certainly for you. Noisli is a mobile app that produces varying levels of white noise for your phone or tablet, so you can relax and get a restful night’s sleep wherever you are. The app has an in-built offline soundboard so you can mix a variety of white noises and save your favorite combination of soothing sounds. You can also set a sleep/fade out timer.


Hypnotise Yourself to Sleep

Ditch the sleeping pills and turn to Relax & Sleep Well Hypnosis. This unique app features guided meditation and hypnosis recordings by eminent British hypnotherapist Glenn Harrold. It is specifically designed to relax users and help them drift off into a peaceful night’s sleep. There are also additional tracks designed for other purposes, such as self-esteem building, lucid dreaming, and weight loss. These are available as in-app purchases.


Bear in mind that your bed is for sleeping; don’t use it for watching television, working or eating. If you’re having difficulty sleeping, don’t count the minutes while you’re tossing and turning, get up and sit in another room for a while, read a book or try some breathing exercises. Remember, if you’re feeling sleepy and sluggish throughout the day it’s hard to look and feel your best, so maintain a healthy sleep routine and make sure you’re getting enough ZZZs.

  1. I stumbled across this post while researching holiday gadgets but have to admit the information and gadgets will help me in day to day life! I have become a bit of and insomniac and am going to use some of these gadgets here. Thanks for this post!

  2. Great tips. I also agree that bed should be only for sleeping. Unfortunately, I can’t always follow that principle when I’m on the road (and I’m traveling often) and staying in a hotel or guest house.

  3. I use an app on my phone that sounds like a rain shower – definitely a must have for sleeping when traveling – especially when I’m in a hotel with thin walls!
