Remember when your mother & grandmother used to give you warm milk before bed, to help you sleep? Turns out they were onto something, now backed by science. This was just one of the many helpful tips we learned from our Pillow Talk interview with Dr. Rachele Pojednic, Professor at Simmons University. She talked us through nutrition myths, sleep cycles, and how to get the day started (without caffeine!).

This Sleep Awareness Month, we're connecting with a variety of sleep experts for tips on creating a healthy, consistent, and sustainable sleep pattern.

She is the author of the recently released “The Women’s Guide to Overcoming Insomnia: Get a good night's sleep without relying on medication” (WW Norton books, 2019).
