If iWatch and the rumored iPhone 6 "Healthbook" feature are keeping you awake at night, then good news! — It looks like Apple has hired a sleep expert, Roy J.E.M Raymann, to join the health team! Jordan Kahn, 9to5Mac:
February is Fitness Month at iMore and Mobile Nations, and that means our whole community is involved -- readers, listeners, viewers, and most of all, forum members. All week you've been sharing how you use your iPhone and iPad to stay rested and relaxed, and the apps and accessories you use along with it. Sure, we sweetened the deal by putting a $100 iTunes gift card up for grabs -- and we'll do it again next week -- but you guys brought serious game.
It's sleep and relaxation week here at iMore for Mobile Nations fitness month, so what better time to take a look at a white noise app that also features dreamy scenes that will bring a mini vacation to your desk: Magic Window -- Living Picture for iPhone and iPad.

It's February and you know what that means? Mobile Nations Fitness Month! That's when we all get together to get in shape, share tips and tricks and recipes for success, review amazing apps and accessories, give away great prizes, and have a ton of fun! This year we're doing it a little differently, though. We're doing weekly themes, and that means every week you'll have new and exciting challenges, and new chances to win!
Week 2: Sleep and relaxation!
Relaxation, whether its full on mediation or just some simple breathing exercise, is how we keep our bodies and minds centered and balanced. Sleep is our reboot, when we write our daily cache to disk and run our system repairs so we're ready for the next day.
As part of fitness month, we'll be reviewing a bunch of great apps and accessories that can help encourage, track, and train us to sleep and relax better and smarter. We'll also be doing THREE cool contests!
Like to go to sleep listening to your iPhone's Music app and curious how to get it to "sleep" after a set period of time? One of the most annoying things is waking up a few hours later and it is still playing. Especially true if you are listening to an Audio Book and have to scrub back through hours of audio to find where you stopped listening.
Well there is a better way! You can set your iPod to stop playing after a set amount of time. It is really easy to do and we will show you how.
