The goal of the free Back to Sleep challenge is to improve how millions of people around the world are sleeping -- by starting a sleep movement, creating a community, and inspiring participants through a unique blend of accountability and behavioral change.

ChiliSleep has assembled a star-studded roster of health + wellness experts who will share specific strategies to teach people how to get good sleep. One of the featured speakers is Mollie McGlocklin, creator of Sleep Is A Skill and the host of The Sleep Is A Skill Podcast.

“I’ll be sharing the exact steps that people need to take! We’re going to take our health back TOGETHER as a community. I can’t wait to reach even more people to help them escape the cycle of sleepless nights and exhausting days,” said McGlocklin.

Other event speakers are Michael J. Breus, PhD (aka, “The Sleep Doctor”), David Nurse (NBA/elite performance optimization coach), and Kelly Starrett (physical therapist, New York Times bestselling author, speaker, and CrossFit trainer). The free challenge, which will last 60 minutes each day, launches on Monday, September 27. Participants can register here: https://backtosleepchallenge.com.

Sleepme 6-Week Course for Consumers

Sleepme coaching is a new program that helps people who struggle with their sleep quality -- whether they simply can't fall asleep or they can’t stay asleep. Knowing that quality sleep enhances overall health and wellness, ChiliSleep’s upcoming consumer-focused 6-week program will teach the necessary framework for better sleep.

“The course will focus on creating positive behaviors for people willing to experiment a little and try out new strategies that will improve their sleep quality and have them wake up feeling rested! Not only will students learn about sleep, but they’ll also gain insights into their own sleeping patterns and how to improve their health overall,” said ChiliSleep CEO and Co-Founder Tara Youngblood.

Throughout the program’s core modules, students will learn about the three main pillars of sleep: Environmental, Behavioral, and Cognitive. Students will also learn the importance of stress reduction and mindfulness; light, sound, and temperature; analyzing sleep patterns, and understanding cognitive productivity.

Nick Spoltore, Surgent's vice president of strategic content development. Surgent released a course addressing the initial impacts of the IRA immediately after it was passed in August 2022. This second course is distinct in that it addresses new details about tax credits that have largely emerged in the months following the IRA's passage.The IRA contains several changes to auto and energy-related tax credits, including some that are new and others that have been renamed. Many, if not most, of these credits reduce the cost of individual and business-related expenses. Surgent's AEC2 course covers the mechanics of the new and revised energy-related credits, such as for energy-efficient commercial vehicles, household-related utilities and improvements, and electric cars.The second course, based on the Student Debt Relief Plan, will help industry professionals to serve as critical resources for a large segment of the U.S. population. It is estimated that 70 percent of the educated workforce will have student loans in the coming years.The SLR2 course will thoroughly examine the Student Debt Relief Plan. Course discussion will also include the importance of year-end tax advice, especially for 2022, due to the Jan. 1, 2023, repayment restart and the income certification requirement; action plans for each student debt relief process; automation of IRS data into the various Department of Education systems; and much more.There is a growing need for tax professionals to better understand the intricacies of student loan debt relief as the IRS and Department of Education are automating this information process starting in mid-2023," said Spoltore. "This course will help practitioners digest the vital tax implications of student loan repayment and college funding, for both employers and employees. Each two-hour course is worth two CPE credits.
