Good Night Sleep Site Launches REM Sleep Program™, a New Adult Sleep Package

April 4th, 2015

Ontario, Canada — Good Night Sleep Site, a family sleep consultant firm, is pleased to announce the recent launch of a full-service adult sleep program. Designed for adults who are suffering with a chronic sleep problem or one of recent onset, Good Night Sleep Site’s REM Sleep Program™ is a three-week support package that takes a multifaceted approach to tackle the behaviors and thought processes that often derail healthy sleep habits. Specifically, its approach works to:

  1. RESTORE a client’s healthy sleep hygiene and a positive relationship with sleep.
  2. EDUCATE as to why these steps are needed to achieve sleep goals and how to maintain ongoing proper sleep health.
  3. MOTIVATE and coach clients throughout the process with a customized plan and support to see you through to sleep success.

During the three weeks, clients will work one-on-one with a sleep consultant to help implement a plan to get them sleeping more consistently and restoratively. The REM Sleep Program™ includes an hour-long consultation followed by three weeks of support with a Good Night Sleep Expert via a shared sleep log, regularly scheduled phone calls, and unlimited text and emails. Participants will also receive a REM Sleep Program – Restore, Educate, Motivate™ Handbook.

The launch of Good Night Sleep Site’s REM Sleep Program coincides well with what has been an increasingly grim landscape for sleep wellness in adults. Of late, sleep insufficiency and chronic deprivation in adults has been likened to a public health crisis, with the American Academy of Sleep Medicine estimating that approximately 70 million Americans suffer from chronic sleep deprivation and nearly 60% of them suffer from a chronic sleep disorder. In addition, the long-term effects of sleep deficiency have been linked to the escalation of chronic health problems, such as heart disease, kidney disease, hypertension, diabetes, stroke, obesity, and depression.

Since 2012, Good Night Sleep Site has been a leader in providing sleep-consulting services for babies and children and expanding the company’s services to include the unique needs of adult sleepers is an ideal extension.

Founded in Ontario in 2012 by Alanna McGinn, Representative and Director for the International Association of Child Sleep Consultants (IACSC) and a certified sleep consultant, Good Night Sleep Site designs fully customized sleep plans for families, ensuring that children and adults get the sleep they need.

Getting Sleep Back on Track For School and Good Night Sleep Site Launches New Website

July 22, 2014

Ontario, Canada — Good Night Sleep Site, a family sleep consultant firm, is pleased to announce the redesign and launch of its new website, www.goodnightsleepsite.com.

Launched in concert with the continued expansion of Good Night Sleep Site’s services in Canada and the U.S., the new website is designed to offer parents a user-friendly interface to learn more about the firm’s various offerings, while gleaning helpful tips for raising good sleepers from a team of certified experts.

Founded in Ontario in 2012 by Alanna McGinn, Representative and Director for the International Association of Child Sleep Consultants (IACSC) and a certified child sleep consultant, Good Night Sleep Site designs fully customized sleep plans for families, ensuring that children get the sleep they need and parents get the tools and support they need to establish healthy sleep fundamentals.

As the new school year quickly approaches, it’s important that families make sure they get back to their school year sleep routine before the first bell rings. McGinn shares some tips to help families—children and parents alike—stay on the right track during the upcoming school year:

  •  Start by getting your child back to their age appropriate bedtime and start 2 weeks before school starts. During the week have them going to bed at the same time they will when they start back at school.
  • Don’t forget about the importance of a bedtime routine. Doing these similar events every night is going to really help prepare them for sleep.
  • Leave out the electronics at bedtime. Turn off the TV and the Internet as the blue LED light from the screen can over stimulate the brain and turn our sleep switch off making it hard for us to fall asleep.
  • Communicate with your child on why you are making these changes for their sleep. Talk to them about why sleep is important and why they need to start going to bed earlier and getting back on sleep track.

“It’s important for your child to get the sleep and rest they need during the school year,” says McGinn. “Skills that are needed in school such as, attention, memory and decision-making can all be diminished due to inadequate sleep. Also, if your child is showing signs of irritability or moodiness throughout the day, or displays behavior problems, it’s time to log in some more sleep at night.”

As the role of sleep in a child’s overall well being and long-term development continues to be highlighted, sleep consulting services serve an ever-increasing demand worldwide for parents looking for the strong emotional and educational support necessary to help with the sleep needs of their whole families.

Good Night Sleep Site works with families ranging from the age of 4 months old to adulthood. For more information, please visit www.goodnightsleepsite.com.
