App of the Month: Sleep Genius

There are those times where you can’t fall asleep. It could be because you have a lot on your mind, your jet lagged, or excited about the next trip planned. I have tried a ton of different ways of falling asleep. I have also tried a ton of different apps, but none really worked.

As I was looking at some other apps to try I ran across one called Sleep Genius. I honestly didn’t think it was going to work because all the other ones I tried didn’t, but surprisingly it did. The app is free if you want the Basic version. They also have a more Advanced version for $4.99.

The app has a revive cycle alarm that can wake you up using different sounds over a short period of time. This is to help decrease stress level. Rather than hearing an alarm to wake up, you can hear birds chirping to calming music. It has a lot of great features that are beneficial to your sleep and overall your health.

I have the free version and have laid in the bed wide awake with no sleep in sight. I put the app on and put some headphones on. It can be set to play for 90 minutes, 180 minutes, or infinite. I either do 90 or 180. I have woken up in the morning wondering when did I even fall asleep.

I have also had other friends try the app and they have told me they knocked out and slept through the night. So it is not just me.

I haven’t tried it on an airplane because I typically fall asleep on one. If you have a hard time, maybe it will help. It seems like it would also help your biological clock get back into a routine if you are jet lagged.

Sleeping is really important so this is definitely an app that should be downloaded. If you want more information check out their website Sleep Genius.

Have you used any apps to help you fall asleep? Have any of them worked?
