This is going to be the year we finally catch up on our sleep—mark our words! Forget counting sheep, eye masks, and “picturing our happy place”—we’re heading straight for a technological solution. Sleep Genius, a scientifically advanced sleep program available for iOS and Android ($4.99 on iTunes and Google Play), uses four neuroscientific sound elements to help you sleep deeper and longer.
The app, which was even endorsed by NASA as it puts to use some of the government agency's technologies, includes a feature that tracks your sleep pattern, a “Revive Cycle Alarm” that awakens users gently and gradually, and “Power Nap,” which uses specific music to trigger a relaxed snooze. Getting sleepy? Try the app for yourself tonight. We certainly are.
