#SleepHack Twitter Chat
Drug free strategies to sleep healthier
Sometimes getting a good night’s sleep can feel like a race – racing to get everything done that needs to get done so we can get to bed at a decent hour. But there’s always one more load of laundry or an email marked urgent or – fill in your own blank here – that’s a must-do before light’s out. And when we sacrifice our sleep for those must-do’s we suffer. Our pain can range from a body that hasn’t been recharged fully to a mind that’s unable to focus, which leads to accidents and, in extreme cases, risk of disease and death.
The path to a good night’s sleep is anything but a race. It’s actually more of a slowing down, a conscious decision to step off the hamster wheel and let the world carry on without us for a few hours. The trouble is, getting to that path is different for everyone. And that’s why we’re thrilled to announce our first ever sleep chat on Twitter. Social media allows us to connect with people and experts we may not otherwise meet. Joining up with those folks allows us to tap into their expertise and help ourselves get a better night’s sleep.
Twitter Chat April 29th at noon (EST)
Our first Twitter chat happened on April 29th at noon (EST) and we had some seriously heavy hitters lined up to help you improve your chances of getting a GREAT night’s sleep. Our hour together resulted in more than 1,000 tweets and was filled with a tsunami of sleep questions AND answers.
