Back to Pzizz for My Sleep

I first got Pzizz as part of a discount bundle. I couldn’t really care for it but the price of the app was more than the bundle itself so I decided to spring for it. I really didn’t expect much of it as the homepage was laden with all kinds of new age mumbo jumbo. Since I paid for it, I decided to give it a try anyway and man was I blown away! I went into a deep relaxing state instantly. I’ve tried meditation a couple times, mainly the agnostic “relaxation response” variety. I could never go beyond the occasional success. I always have too many thoughts going on in my mind.
With Pzizz you just zone out and let the voice of Michael Breen put you in a relaxed state. I always find myself coming back to this application especially when my sleep cycle starts getting screwed up by having too much stuff put on my mind by work or life or a crazy combination of it all. It never disappoints. It comes with three modules: sleep, meditation, and energizer. I’ve used the energizer quite a few times on my commute and it simply blows me away. I get suspended in this state between sleeping and waking, totally relaxed. By the time, I get off the train I’m actually looking forward to work regardless of the lack of sleep. The sleep module saved me a couple times after a bout of all night partying, where you get domestic jet lag that simply screws up your weekend. I use it for the second sleep after waking up at some weird hour of the day but still not refreshed.
The program is dead simple to use. It comes on Windows or Mac and one license to put them on any platform of your choice. Windows at work, mac at home or whatever. You can build audio sequences on the fly or export them to your itunes on the go. The sounds can be mixed as you please, adjusting the amount of vocals and serene sounds. Pzizz uses an algorithm to combine the most relaxing, soothing sound sequences (mostly a variety of nature sounds) in a combination that gets your brain in it’s most relaxed state. I’m really not sure of the science behind this and many detractors have called the grounds into question but I bet they haven’t really used it or approached it with an open mind. All I know is that it works and I want an iPhone version.
