I am proud to be partnered with Dr. Sheryl Guloy, Co-Founder of Somnolence+™.
Somnolence + Inc. and its team, bring together professionals and experts from diverse fields to develop programs, applications, and services designed to support your sleep wellness needs, whether that be as a community organization; an educational institution; or an individual seeking to learn more about how to manage sleep.
Sheryl’s interest in sleep began with her own sleep troubles and her realization that she is a true night owl. Through Somnolence+, she aims to make sure that more people know about their own sleep and have strategies and tools to help them sleep well.
Sleep Education and Sleep Coaching
There are two main challenges for sleep wellness:
- Many people are unaware of how critical sleep is in terms of optimising health, wellness, and performance. They may not know about sleep’s importance or may believe that they sleep well, even though this may not be the case. In fact, most people have never been told much about sleep and what they’ve been told is often misinformed or incomplete. Sometimes, their views on sleep are so distorted that they unwittingly harm their own health, wellness, and performance.
In these situations, the key to sleep wellness is awareness education, which we provide through our workshops, lunch and learns, courses, and SnoozzzZfest.
- Some people are aware that sleep is critical and want to improve their sleep, BUT they do not know how to begin to move towards sleep wellness. Others have learned quite a bit about sleep wellness basics but actually need support in putting what they’ve learned, in terms of sleep hygiene into practice, especially on a consistent basis. Similar to people who seek healthy eating, physical fitness, or lifestyle coaching, people in need of personalised sleep wellness plans can be supported via sleep coaching.
Why Sleep Coaching?
Coaching is a means by which people can obtain the support and guidance they need to integrate good sleep into their lifestyles. Sleep coaching helps clients in making wiser decisions that will positively influence energy levels, eating habits, movement, mental health, social relationships, cognitive performance, creativity, and productivity. Through good sleep, they will decrease their risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, and many other health issues. In fact, the list of benefits relating to good sleep is very long.
