Our Board of Sleep Experts carefully double-check our sleep research and sleep health advice so our readers can feel confident we're offering the best, most helpful recommendations and information.
We aim to include the most accurate and up-to-date information in all of our blog posts so we can offer our readers the best advice to improve their night’s sleep. However, despite our countless hours of sleep research, we aren’t “sleep experts.” And that’s why we reach out to real doctors and sleep specialists to check over our advice and guarantee it’s sound and evidence-based.
