VOS.health introduces new possibilities for using AI in mental health care
Good sleep is essential for recharging your body's batteries and resetting your mind. Yet many people struggle with refilling their energy tanks during the night. Are you one of them? VOS is here to show you the way to a good night's sleep!
Maybe it takes you an hour to fall asleep, you're endlessly snoozing your alarm clock, or you wake up in the middle of the night and can't fall asleep again. If your rest routine deserves improvement, you've come to the right place. VOS will teach you how to get your mind and body ready for bed to wake up well-rested. Before you start reading any further, here's one intro tip – if you're reading this in the evening, turn on a blue light blocker (and do so from now on every evening). Your sleep hormone levels will thank you. So, what's in VOS for your nighty-night relaxation?
Sweet Dreams Are a Breath Away
Mindful breathing is a perfect way to calm your body down. And a relaxed body is more ready for bed. Especially if you focus on breathing to your belly area around the lower ribs, you'll help your body turn on the recovery mode. Your heart rate will slow down, your blood pressure will lower, and so will the stress hormone cortisol. \n \n Not sure how to relax your breath? Then breathe with VOS. Under "Breathing", you'll find numerous breathing exercises that will guide your inhales and exhales. As a bonus, calming breathing focuses your mind, defending it against stressful thoughts.
Enter the Dreamland with a Relaxed Mind
A relaxed mind is a sleeper's dream. If your mind's often flooded with thoughts around bedtime, you can soothe it with meditations. And there's much more to meditation than just slowing down the train of thoughts in your head. It shows you how to focus on the present moment without judging it, let go of your worries, and deeply relax. A fitting sweet-dream recipe, right? Just open Meditations in the VOS Wellbeing Hub, pick one that fits your mood, and let the voice prepare you to enter the dreamland.
