New and Noteworthy

 

It would make us very very happy if you could rate and review it iTunes, as we’re already on their, “New & Noteworthy” list in the category, “Health”. Ideally we’d like to get on the overall, “New & Noteworthy” list.

You can find the show notes are below the video.

For me the highlight was the quiz. You can see that by scrolling 12 minutes in.

 

 

 

Appy Talk

We’ve been trying out Sleep Time Alarm Clock By Azumio, the next generation sleep cycle alarm clock, “that will leave you feeling rested after every night’s sleep!”

Our average marks out of ten for this were: 6.6

 

This Week

Calm.com
 

This week we’re going to try Calm.com – you can download the app on iphone or just visit the website if you’re on Android.
