What does the app do?

The app has a 5-week training plan that helps you change your sleeping habits. This includes calculating your ISI sleep score, providing advice on sleep hygiene, setting up your sleep environment and managing habits that may impact on your sleep. You can monitor your sleep by making entries into the app’s sleep diary. The app uses this information to make recommendations such as time to get into bed.
