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!
