⛸️ Ice Dancer Isabella Flores Teams Up with Lagoon for Optimal Sleep

Isabella Flores is one of the most promising up and comers on the US National Ice Dancing Team, but recently she was suffering from some debilitating neck pain exacerbated by her sleep setup.   We've had the chance to work with Isabella over the past few weeks, and have her on a promising path forward now that she’s found her perfect match - the Fox pillow. Check out Isabella talking about her experience here.  

👨‍👩‍👦 POV: We’re Parents of Newborn Work to Optimize Our Sleep

Two weeks ago my wife Keavy gave birth to our firstborn, Patrick.  We went from being two of the best sleepers I know to taking on one of the most challenging sleep experiences known to man… caring for an infant baby.  Here’s a look at the highs and lows of my sleep score for the first 10 nights that I tracked on my Oura ring.  We also had a special appearance from the mama herself, as Keavy sharing how her sleep has been as a new mother.  Baby, mama and dad are all doing well - figuring out our new normal! 

😴 US News & World Report State of Sleep in the US

Last week US News & World Report released the most interesting facts and figures from their “Sleep Habits, Preferences Consumer Survey” and their “Sleep Quality Survey.”  Compared to previous years, I was impressed that there’s some really promising and positive data about how Americans are caring for their sleep routine.  73% of U.S. adults follow a regular bedtime routine and 20% of U.S. adults say they stop using devices with screens 20-30 minutes before going to sleep. Which states get the best sleep? Vermont and Minnesota (woot woot!).  Check out all of the facts and figures here 

🐒 Do the Drunken Monkey for Better Sleep

This TikTok sensation is really catching on.  The "drunken monkey" is a fun little pre-bedtime exercise or "movement practice" that's meant to boost blood flow to your extremities. It involves taking a wide-legged stance, shifting the hips back and forth, and moving the arms around in alternating circular motions.  You can read what all the buzz is about here on Eat This Not That… or if you’re looking for some entertainment, watch us do the Drunken Monkey ourselves here.
