The Sleep-In Challenge

View a video message from Chinyere Eze about the Sleep-In Challenge

Rules of the Challenge

  1. Aim to sleep at least 7-8 hours every night.
    • Create a “sleep schedule” to program your body to go to sleep at a certain time
  2. Embrace healthy sleep habits.
    • Avoid watching TV, browsing on phones or tablets 30 minutes before bedtime
    • Avoid drinking excessive water or caffeinated beverages an hour before bed
  3. If having trouble getting to sleep or remaining asleep throughout the night, use some helpful tools.
    • Natural, non-medicated remedies like chamomile or melatonin supplements has been shown to help safely induce sleep
    • Listen to “Meditation music” or soft instrumental music to help relax before sleep
Be sure to track your progress and notes on how you feel after getting a good nights sleep. Technology tools like FitBit or Apple Watch can help monitor your sleep quality and patterns. Use them if you have it!
