An App that turns your phone into a surprisingly effective sleep quantification device.
I'm a little late to the sleep hacking party. For some reason I was a little reluctant to start quantifying my sleep. However, I kept hearing about the sleep cycle app from people like Dave Asprey and Pat Flynn. I finally paid the $2 and downloaded it. I'm glad I tried it! It really does improve your sleep.
Editor's Review: An essential sleep hacking tool
I'm a person that's always kind of had issues with waking up on time... I would just hit the snooze button chronically, this has caused me to fail some classes and lose some jobs.
The no snooze habit was suggested to me by Brad with RSD, which is pretty straight forward; you pick a time to wake up before going to bed and just never use the snooze button, and it really does improve your productivity by giving you more time in the mornings.
But it's really hard to practice and a lot of times it makes me really exhausted in the morning.
I seem to do way better ignoring the snooze button and actually getting out of bed with the optimized wake up time of the Sleep Cycle alarm. As you can see in on my Coach.me profile I've actually done a pretty good job of practicing no snooze lately. Which is something that I've just been really bad at my whole life.
I've used it for several years now and it's a great tool for gamifying your biohacking. It try to combine different sleep hacks to aim for the highest sleep score
- Avoiding blue light and using a red light before bed
- Practicing none-stimulatory thinking
- Meditation and relaxing breathing
- Relaxing Chamomile tea
- Tranquilizing cocktail of Apple cider vinegar and honey
- Sometimes supplementing Melatonin
It's well worth the $2.
Sleep is important
I liked the app... Its ok I mean, I was asleep so I didn't really interact with it. I love the features, its goes perfect with my stack from http://www.nusups.com because I have to take them three different times a day, once before bed. But its the best boost, and this app is apart of that cycle
