BestSleep was born out of our need to achieve better sleep. Working full time, having young kids and pursuing an active and engaged life often led to being run down and looking to outside stimulants for energy.
After researching and testing ways to improve our kids’ sleep (white noise, black-out curtains, an ideal room temperature, comforters etc), we realised many of these techniques could apply to us too. After researching deeply into sleep we found that good sleep is important at any age, especially for parents! We needed to make our sleep a priority.
Bedtime routines, understanding of triggers and the use of sleep aids are just as important for adults if not more so. It is this knowledge that led us to found BestSleep, in order to help and empower people to get their best, regenerative sleep through scientific research, sleep aids and proven strategies.
