Catch Some Z’s with NASA’s App


With only 24 hours in a day, people are finding it harder and harder to devote the suggested amount of time each night to the thing that little kids hate and adults long for- sleep.

Let’s face it, in this day and age, sleep is at a premium and technology continues to grow at a rapid pace. Well, some companies are diligently working on combining the need for sleep with innovation to find a Better Way to rest.

Today, we are going to focus solely on one app that is out of this world in a sense. What we’re talking about is NASA’s sleep app, Sleep Genius. Though there are quite a few sleep-monitoring apps on the market and wearable technology that touts sleep monitoring, the Sleep Genius is light years ahead of the pack.

So, what makes this sleep app so innovative? How about the fact that the NASA-developed technology has the ability to find your “natural bedtime” through analysis of your sleep patterns?

Once the app determines your best bedtime, it will then encourage a person to get to bed as close to it as possible.

Gone are the days of incessant alarms going off in your room in order to wake up. The Sleep Genius’ alarm will gradually awaken you, thanks to a gentle five-minute Revive Cycle that was scientifically created to help wake you up to soothing sounds.

If you set your alarm for 8 a.m. your Revive Cycle Alarm will begin at 7: 55 a.m. and end at 8 a.m. This will allow you to wake up gradually and prevent stress that can be caused by noisy alarm clocks.

The Sleep Genius’ Power Nap feature makes this app even more innovative. Sometimes, all you need is a quick power nap to recharge your batteries to power through the rest of the day.

Thanks to the psychoacoustic music that was scientifically designed to trigger your relaxation response, this feature naturally induces you to take a short nap.

Providing you with just the right amount of light sleep to recharge your mind, you’ll be woken up gradually to resume your day!
