Editing a mySleepButton Pack Made Her Drowsy

A mySleepButton research assistant has been vetting the content of all our packs, to weed out suboptimal items. She tried working on this in the evenings, but there’s a problem: reviewing mySleepButton items makes her feel drowsy to the point of nodding off!

“No More Drugs”: Anonymous Female Testimonial

I am 71 and have been unable to easily fall sleep without lorazepam for years. When I started reading about the possible harm the drug might be doing, I went into action. I read about sleep and tried a number of apps. Then I came across an article in Forbes. Then I read more about your app and the cognitive shuffle. I was intrigued. It made perfect sense.

I tried the app a week ago and I fell asleep. The next night I put it on for an hour so I would not end up worrying that it would end before I fell asleep. I have fallen asleep every night, sometimes in minutes, but never more than around 20 minutes. No more drugs.

Thank you.

Testimonials: “the answer to sleepless nights ” and More…

We continue to receive loads of positive feedback on the cognitive shuffle in general and mySleepButton in particular.  For example,

I haven’t slept a good nights sleep in years. Its sporadic at best from all the tossing and turning. Last night I downloaded the app recommended by The Bobby Bones Show. Took 10 min I was out for the count. Never woke up till this mornings alarm. Thank you and please send a thank you to Bobby Bones radio show. He only recommends superb items and apps. Might want to think,about having him endorse this wonderful gem!
