Looking to improve your sleep permanently?

Any program can tell you to cut coffee, use blue-light filters or meditate. But the truth is much of the generic advice on the internet doesn’t work for people with insomnia.

Stellar Sleep is different. Stellar Sleep uses the #1 science-backed approach for improving sleep that is personalized to your needs and simply works. We empower you to live a healthier and happier life by better understanding yourself and your brain, so you can wake up every morning feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the challenges of the day.

Our results speak for itself. We have helped over a thousand patients fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer using psychology. Over 80% of our users see a dramatic improvement in their sleep in less than 4 weeks.

Our evidence-based program takes only 5 to 10 minutes a day, and includes topics around:

* Stimulus control
* Cognitive restructuring
* Undergoing sleep restriction therapy
* Building strong sleep habits
* Calming down a racing mind
* Relaxation techniques
* And much, much more

In addition to our core sleep curriculum, you’ll have access to the following features:

* A comprehensive library of nature sounds, breathing exercises, progressive muscle relaxation exercises, bedtime stories, sleep music and guided meditations to help you relax and unwind.
* Track your progress, better understand your sleep and stay on top of trends with our sleep diary.
* Connect with wearables through the Health App.
* Gratitude and worry journaling.

Really, actually works

I found Slumber One at a point in my life where I hadn’t slept for weeks. I mean that literally. I track my sleep and I had gone for at least 3 weeks where Fitbit told me I literally had slept 0 minutes and 0 hours in the past 3 weeks.

I tried melatonin. I tried cutting out all coffee. I tried reading a book in bed. I tried meditation. I tried weed. Nothing worked.

Some days I would get tired. So frickin tired that I thought for sure I would be able to sleep that night. Nope. “Fooled you” my brain would say. I would lay in bed so exhausted that I felt like I could die, but I just wouldn’t fall asleep.

When I found Slumber One, I bought it on impulse, but I honestly didn’t think it would work. But I had already spent hundreds of dollars buying things so why not try something else. They’re from Harvard. Maybe it’ll work. If not I can tell people even Harvard can’t help me.

The first week using Slumber One I didn’t think much was changing. More money down the drain. But then the second week, by some miracle I actually slept. I slept for 2 nights. My Fitbit counter was finally no longer at 0. Third week I slept for 5 nights. By the fourth week, I actually slept every single night.

If you’re reading this and you can’t sleep, then do yourself a favor and get this app. This really, actually works. I don’t know how. Some of the stuff they tell you to do just seems completely illogical, but somehow, through their sequence of instructions, I can sleep again.

I can sleep now!

This app has totally changed my approach to solving my severe insomnia. I’ve had an average of 2-3 nights sleep for 7 months, which has left me feeling anxious, depressed, exhausted and in physical pain. I’ve felt as though my proverbial cheese was slipping off my proverbial cracker. This program is very enlightening and easy to follow. Most of it educates the user about things they’d just never know without it. While I did not use the accountability feature, I did value being accountable to myself for healing my own sleep deficit; it is a sort of gentle self-challenge. The sleep badges are adorable and strangely satisfying to earn! One improvement I can think of, is to be able to go back to all of the sleep modules already completed, so the lessons can be revisited if a user wants to. Over all, I highly recommend this app to anyone who struggles with insomnia. I only wish I’d found it 6 months ago!

I’m believer!

Stellar sleep has quietly changed my life. I like the emphasis on building skills that I can use to tackle my specific sleep issues vs other apps I’ve tired which try to just clam you down with generic seeming meditation. I’ve found that a lot of my sleep problems are made worse by my anxiety, and Stellar sleep has helped me recognize that and handle it in a way where it no longer affects my sleep. More importantly the app has helped me believe that I can sleep like a normal person again instead of having to struggle with sleep for the rest of my life. Every day I’m feeling much, much more hopeful about living a normal life with normal sleep.
