Weekend Events

Sleep In 2021 kicked off on Friday with an interview with Dr. Afolabi-Brown! Dr. Afolabi-Brown (@restfulsleepmd) is a board-certified pediatric pulmonologist and sleep medicine physician, who helps her young patients breathe better and sleep better. By extension, she also helps improve the sleep of their parents. Project Sleep CEO, Julie Flygare, talked with Dr. Afolabi-brown about making sleep cool. Together they discussed the impact of caffeine, alcohol, CBD, and smartphones on the sleep of teens and ways we can encourage young people to prioritize their sleep. Watch the video here or above.  The night concluded with an Insta-Tuck In where participants shared pictures of tucking into bed.

Participants woke up on Saturday morning with Breathe In with Georgie led by Georgie Lawlor (@breathe_with_georgie), a breathwork practitioner, women’s fitness coach, storyteller, and motivational speaker. She led Sleep In participants in a breathwork exercise to support rest and relaxation. Watch the stream on Facebook here.

Later on Saturday evening, Sleeping Under The Stars: Camping and Traveling with Sleep Disorders took place.  Hosted by board member, Emma Cooksey(@sleepapneastories), with special guests, Michelle (@olivebug__), Stacy (@cpapbabes), Hugh (@narcoleptic.adventurer), Kristen (@meandmycpap), Iris (@lifeinflashesblogger), and Ashley (@the_traveling_narcoleptic). From mountain climbing with narcolepsy to camping with sleep apnea, the guests shared their stories of traveling and camping with sleep disorders.  

A much-anticipated event every Sleep In is Sunday’s Brunch on Instagram Live. This year, board member Cienna Ditri (@chronicallypersevering) hosted Registered Dietitian, Anita Dharwadkar (@dietitian_anita) on how diet impacts our sleep health. During Sunday Brunch: Talking Nutrition and Sleep, Cienna and Anita explore questions such as does having chocolate before bed cause bad dreams? And is Sleepytime tea actually making you sleepy? Along with much more!
