Thank you for checking out our introduction course for better sleep. We’re proud to say that we’ve made this together with one of the industry’s leading sleep coaches, Martin Reed, MEd, CHES®, CCSH, from

Martin Reed’s knowledge and experience within the field of sleep and insomnia, combined with Sleep Cycle’s decade long presence in analysing and interpreting sleep data, form the foundation for what you’re about to experience.

You should know that no matter your situation, you’re capable of quality rest. Don’t believe anything else.

Each month, thousands of Sleep Cycle users have some kind of challenge with sleep. It’s not uncommon that even conditions such as insomnia, depend to some extent on habitual factors. In some cases, circumstances play a larger role. You could be in pain, approaching menopause or live with anxiety. Or you’re at your wit’s end with life’s puzzle, juggling kids, work, family, spouse, maybe grief and whatever else that demands your attention. To just shape up, isn’t always the solution and certainly not something you want to hear on repeat, like a broken vinyl that just keeps scratching.

You should know that no matter your situation, you’re capable of quality rest.

But even if your condition is more dire, the stuff we’ll introduce are things within your power to change. Maybe all of them. Maybe just some. But they’ll all play a part, and you’re in control of how, because you got the leading role.

These exercises will bring you closer to better sleep, and the knowledge is there to provide context. Some of these will be longer, some will be shorter. A few will be very short.

All in all, there will be fourteen of them and by the last one, you’ll be equipped with new skills and empowered to improve your sleep situation.

To fulfil our promise to you, we require one thing back. Your commitment. Our advice will only work if you’re serious about changing your situation. You don’t have to appreciate it. We don’t expect you to like it. You just need to accept that right now, your sleep can improve. You have the control to make it happen.

Our advice will only work if you’re serious about changing your situation.

This kind of acceptance isn’t something that easily slides into place. It’s not a turnkey solution. It’s simply a state, in which you’ve decided that you’re ready to change. With this acceptance, comes confidence. With confidence, you take back control. You’re here, after all, one step closer to better sleep.

But let’s put this in practice already.

Tonight, no matter when you go to bed, if it takes you awhile to fall asleep, if you wake up in the middle of the night, if you get up much too early – just go with it. For now, it is what it is.

So you’re awake. Fine. You’re set to change this now.

Can’t fall asleep? That’s okay. Cause you’re working on it.

Already up? No worries. You’ll own this soon.

As we said, you don’t have to appreciate it. You only have to commit to change. And now, you got Sleep Cycle and Martin Reed with you. Your sleep issues won’t know what hit them. See you tomorrow.

Sincerely yours, Sleep Cycle with Martin Reed from Insomnia Coach®
