3 Tips from a Sleep Expert

We believe everyone should have access to expert advice on achieving their health goals.

We’ve tapped Mollie Eastman, a sleep consultant and member of our Wellness Board, to offer some of her favorite tips for accomplishing something that so many people pursue: quality sleep.

Manage Your Light Exposure – Day and Night

It’s widely understood that exposure to light at night – everything from turning the ceiling light on during a midnight bathroom trip to the glow of your phone screen or TV before bed – can interrupt your Circadian rhythms. But daytime exposure is important too for the opposite reason! New research is indicating that the amount of sunlight you get during the day helps your body to produce sufficient melatonin to keep you asleep at night. 

Take a Sleep Test

Home tests are readily available and very low-effort. Nowadays you can test at home for under $200 for most of these services. You order the test, put on the wearable tracker, go to sleep like you normally do, and that can uncover the specifics on how you’re sleeping. 

Set Consistent Wake-Up Times

Rather than putting pressure on what time you go to bed or fall asleep, which can set you up for failure, controlling your wake-up time gives you agency in the process. Give yourself some leeway – a half-hour window from your chosen time so you can flex in the morning depending on how your sleep overnight was. Keeping your weekend and weekday wake-up times consistent also helps to regulate quality sleep.
