Ok…as a graduate student (or working stressed out human being in general) sleep quality is not always the best. However, psychologists as well as others have begun experimenting with ways to increase sleep quality through the use of smart phone alarms as well as through dream manipulation. The following article on LifeHaker discusses some of these apps. I’m currently using the DreamOn app. I’ve only been using it for a week or two, and would like to wait a bit longer before going into depth about the app; however, my experience so far has been (a) increase in vivid dreaming and (b) more restful/higher quality of sleep – leading to increased energy/mood during the day. Now if only I could use this app to help me study for the NCE. 🙂

Sleep. It’s the one thing we all do and the one thing that few of us are willing to screw around with—if only because a bad night of sleep can ruin an entire day. Still, hundreds of sleep tricks, hacks, and dream induction techniques exist that are supposed to give you a better night of sleep, and they’ve all been ported to your phone. But do any of these really work? If so, are these apps worth using? We’ll take a look at the science supporting various sleep apps, and then see how it really feels when your sleep and dreams tinkered with.
Now you too can start a “Psychiatric ‘Lemonade’ Stand” Like Lucy in Peanuts. Impress your friends and family, treat that obnoxious anxiety triggered by late night graduate school papers…

I think my favorite is Cotard delusion!!!
