HOW TO

Boost Your Energy Levels

And overhaul your daily life with these four simple steps.

Yawn. Sorry, we’re happy to see you—honestly! We’re just exhausted.

If, like us, you find your energy levels dwindling and in need of a revitalizing boost come early afternoon, double-espresso drinks and lazy evenings curled up on the sofa aren’t the only remedies. Introduce these apps to your life and the small daily changes they incite can add up to big energy-boosting improvements.

Sleep Better

When looking to boost your energy levels, how well you’re sleeping is a sensible place to start. This doesn’t just mean how long you’re spending in the land of nod, but the quality of sleep you’re getting on your nightly visits there. And that’s exactly what Sleep Cycle tracks.

See not just how much sleep you’ve had but the quality of sleep you’ve had with Sleep Cycle.

Launch the app, lay your iPhone on your nightstand, and the app will use clever algorithms to determine the state you’re in at any point—light sleep, deep sleep, or awake. By graphing your nightly rest—or lack thereof—the app will show you any deficiencies in your sleep. Meanwhile, its smart alarm feature rouses you only when you’re in light sleep, ensuring you start your day feeling more energized.
