People who frequently experience nightmares often report massively reduced sleep quality. Nightmares affect daytime functioning in terms of reducing general well- being, increasing anxiety before sleep and after nightmares and correspond with negative mood and higher stress before and after sleep [1]. Patients who have their nightmares successfully treated appear to have better sleep quality, feel more rested on awakening, and report less daytime fatigue and sleepiness, and improvement in their symptoms of insomnia [2,3,4].

How Nightly helped Lydia sleep better


Before joining the Nightly community, Lydia had nightmares almost everyday. You can see how the Nightly ritual helped her sleep better by lowering the number of nightmares

It takes only 2 minutes in the evening and I know I won’t have nightmares. I got used to that. It makes me feel very safe now.

What our testers say about Nightly


What our testers ask us most frequently


Yes. If you worry about some electric waves being released by the app, we must disappoint you – the app is not fancy enough to do so. The app just plays certain sounds at certain moments. But.. if you still don’t feel 100% safe with your phone right next to you, turn on the airplane mode. This way no electric waves will be emitted by your phone.

Good question! To work properly, the app needs to collect information about your movements at night. The phone is collecting it while lying in bed with you, so that’s the only way to do it. You can also place it under the sheet.

Nope. Actually, the app doesn’t influence the phases of your sleep but rather adapts to your natural sleep stages to do its job.

Yes. If you quit the app by accident (for example to check this cute cat gif that your friend just sent you), make sure to turn it back on.
