Fall asleep with ease and wake up feeling refreshed with Can’t Sleep.

Can’t Sleep was invented by Thomas Dickson, the Australian expert in music and sleep psychology. The artificially intelligent music helps you sleep by distracting you from wakeful thoughts, calming your mood and relaxing your body. By improving your sleep, you increase your motivation and productivity, reduce stress and anxiety, and decrease your risk of catching colds and flus. Simply choose your soundscape in the app, enjoy new relaxing music and you’ll wake up tomorrow having forgotten falling asleep. Try it now free and sleep better tonight!

About the Founder, Thomas Dickson.
“Hi! I’m a PhD student at the University of NSW, specialising in the use of music as a sleep aid. I’ve combined music psychology research, and app development skills to build a world-first sleep app that composes relaxing music. I made it genuinely customisable as I wanted people to be able to choose the style of music they love, the sounds and instruments that help them to relax, and to never be frustrated by boring repetition. I am keen to make this app the best it can be and give people real-world solutions to insomnia and daytime sleepiness problems.”

Definitely helps with sleep

Ok, so I have tried several of these sleep apps over the past couple of days. All of them force you to login and then spam your email…except this one. I have not used the app for long but whatever the case, I appreciate not having to log int and getting emailed 5 days later.

The best sleep app

After using for a week I’ve been really happy. There is a really great range of sleep sounds compared to others I’ve used. I can even customize it, which was unexpected. I used to listen to music playlists, but this works so much better. It was easy to download and subscribe to.

I am HOOKED on this. I go to sleep every night listening to misty. The music is so relaxing, and you can hear the ocean, rain or forest. I recommend this to anyone finds most sleep music irritating. I turn off the high notes (cause they are distracting) and just listen to the ambience, melodies & every once in a while there is a bell or chime.
