ChiliSleep is launching a “Back to Sleep” challenge to encourage people to take back their health. This 5-day live event will run from September 27, 2021 – October 1, 2021.

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.
