Improve sleep habits by connecting device to FitLyfe

Need a little help getting a good night’s sleep?

The answer may be just a click, swipe, and tap away if you have a smartphone, sleep tracking wearable, or mobile device.

  • Ever wonder what time you actually drift off to sleep?
  • When you finally fall asleep, are you tossing and turning or deep in dreamland?
  • And the big question…are you getting enough sleep?

If you’re not getting 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night, you’re among the one-third of sleep-deprived adults in the United States, according to survey data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And it doesn’t have to be that way.

So how do you evaluate your sleep habits?

If you’re binge-watching shows every night, staying out late with friends, perpetually working overtime, or even suffer from insomnia, chances are pretty good you know you could do better at getting your Zzzs.

In the old days, getting a handle on your sleep habits usually involved staying a few nights in a controlled environment connected to cameras and monitors measuring heart rate, breathing, brain waves and sleep cycles, duration, oxygen levels, and even the number of times you toss and turn.

If you have a sleep disorder, that’s still an option. But for most people, getting a handle on your sleep patterns to improve the quality of your sleep is as easy as checking your smartphone, wearable, or mobile device.

When you connect your device to the FitLyfe platform, you can learn a lot about your sleep habits, earn points for wellness rewards, and access resources to help you improve your sleep habits.

FitLyfe-compatible phones, watches, and mobile devices that measure sleep include:

  • Apple
  • FitBit
  • Garmin
  • Google Fit
  • Microsoft Band
  • Polar
  • Samsung Health

You can also connect your sleep data to the FitLyfe platform through hundreds of other third-party apps including:

  • Amazfit
  • Audible
  • Bellabeat
  • Calm
  • Oura

Each app or device has its own sleep tracking tools and software. But the user experience is largely the same, providing you with valuable data about your sleep patterns.

Connect your device to the FitLyfe platform, and take a look at your sleep data. You can learn a lot about what you’re doing well, and where you can improve.

Notifications on your device can provide you with recommendations and reminders to get ready for bed, follow your bedtime routine, and even avoid food, drinks, and activities that might interfere with sleep as bedtime approaches.

Here’s a simple way to start. Use your device to set a one-hour reminder to get ready for bed. Then follow your bedtime routine, and call it a night. You’ll feel more relaxed, sleep better, and live longer.
