You’re not alone

25% – Around a quarter of people in Switzerland have trouble sleeping.1

Impact on quality of life

Sleep is crucial for many processes in our body. It boosts our immune system, regulates our metabolism, triggers repair and growth processes and stores away memories of the day. It therefore comes as no surprise to hear that lack of sleep can have a negative impact on our daily life.

Treating sleep problems

There are many medicines that help with sleep problems, but most of them have unpleasant side effects and shouldn’t be taken for too long. That’s why it’s all the more important to find other ways of finding your way back to restful sleep.

Step by step

We’ve all experienced times where the harder we try to fall to sleep, the longer it takes to drift off. A structured sleep diary and personal coaching can help you relax and get a better night’s sleep again.

  2. Julia likes to solve her problems by herself. She has already changed a few things in her daily routine so she is able to fall asleep faster. She has also tried relaxing teas and meditation, but so far the only thing that helps are sleeping pills.
  3. Julia uses the Sanitas Coach app to analyse her sleep and get personal feedback on how she can optimise her sleep.
  4. She follows the coach’s step-by-step instructions and is relieved to no longer be dealing with the problem on her own.
