Sleep soundly with the ResMed S+

Millions of people struggle to sleep. Whether it be stress, pain or insomnia, there are plenty of reasons behind a broken nights sleep, but can a better understanding of your sleep pattern help?

I was recently offered the chance to try the S+ device by ResMed.

The sleek looking device works with an app on your phone to monitor and assess your sleep patterns, giving daily and personalised feedback.

Now, I have tried other phone apps but I've never found them to be that effective. I'm also the owner of a Fitbit, which also offers sleep monitoring but as someone who curls up with the hands under their head, that's not the most comfortable option either. All of these factors make the S+ the perfect alternative. 

Sleep, and getting as much of it as possible, is really important to me. Not only as a Mum to a 3 year old but also as a sufferer of chronic pain and Fibromyalgia. Lack of sleep can be hard on anyone and for Fibromyalgia sufferers it can cause days of pain and flare ups.

When the S+ arrived we were just preparing for a week away at Centerparcs. I was also battling a bit of a flare up so decided it would be the perfect time to try the device, enabling me to see how I sleep when I'm not well, and also compare holiday sleep to home and working sleep! 

Unboxing the S+ I found that even the packaging was sleek! It came with the required lead, plug and a set up guide. 

Downloading the app and getting the device linked to my phone was so easy! 

The app logs the findings of the device and also offers a Mind Clear area for you to note whats on your mind and keeping you awake. There's also an alarm with various sounds for a more natural wake up, along with relaxing melodies to help you drift off. 

So I've slept for quite a few nights with the S+ at my side and now, the results are in and I have to say that I'm impressed! The app gives a clear breakdown of your sleep pattern, the length of each type of sleep and your total length of sleep. 

I found it strangely interesting in that on the night I had what I thought was a bad nights sleep it was actually the best I'd had for a while. The same goes for what felt like the best nights sleep, as it was actually the worst. 


What was even stranger is that knowing I had a reasonable nights sleep on days when I thought I hadn't actually made me feel so much better. Like I was refreshed and ready to start the day! It's possibly psychological but either way the S+ has helped me drift off for a better nights sleep, wake more naturally and understand how I sleep better.
