I previously talked about sleep on a thread a few months ago…
But, does anyone else use tech to help them sleep?
I have an old Iphone 6S that I bought it about 18 months ago to stream stuff on the tv -before I got my first Chromebook. I got it for $99 new at Wal-Mart, since it was much cheaper than an ipad, and I never needed to activate it because I did not buy it to use as a phone…
Now that I have 3 Chrome devices, I don’t use it anymore for streaming…
But around Nov or Dec of last year, I found a cool app called Thunderspace. It basically plays the sound of rain and thunder off in the distance. There are over 10 different variations of sounds, but I have used 1 of the 2 free sound variations for almost 6 months now.
I finally paid for the app yesterday, and unlocked all the other variations. I figured I use it every night - may as well.
Amazingly enough - it helps me get to sleep super fast. Every time I get up in the middle of the night and come back to bed, I play it again. The default setting is for 90 minutes, but you can adjust that. I just leave it that way.
Now, my girlfriend does not like it - she claims it makes her have strange dreams, and she is convinced there is something subliminal about it. It doesn’t bother me, and I use headphones to play the sound when I am visiting her.
Anyway - anyone else do something similar?
I prefer android phones, and I have some similar programs on my android phone. But, I have not found one I like as much as Thunderspace on the iOS. And, there is no android version of that program, unfortunately.
