There are millions of people that suffer from insomnia and instead of taking the approach of complicated sleep trackers with graphs and charts, the mySleepButton app is designed to simply guide you to sleep.

The mySleepButton app was developed around the scientific 'Cognitive Shuffle' technique, which has you imagine a series of images or objects in succession. This technique was developed by Dr. Luc P. Beaudoin, who also founded the app's developer, CogSci Apps Corp.

Dr. Beaudoin describes that "One moment, users may be directed to think of a baby, then next a football game, then beans, a ball, London and so on," and this is the exact kind of experience you can expect when you push 'Put Me to Sleep' button on the app.
