I am the creator of the "Paleo Sleep Challenge" and I would love to get your feedback.
Here is the link to sign-up (it is FREE).
The idea is to help you establish recovery goals, particularly as it relates to sleep. The goals will revolve around "sleep efficiency" metrics and aggregate time slept and will be measured using an app (the phone accelerometer enables the detection of movement which allows you to quantify sleep quality).
The challenge will be to sleep for 8 hours a day, 30 days in a row without the use of any pills or potions. I have developed a Paleo Sleep Kit that is a bunch of tools that help relax the senses and induce sleep (i.e. aromatherapy for smell, light-eliminating eyemask for sight, noise reducing ear plugs for sound, goose feather pillow for feel / body posture, calming tea for taste).
Sensible recovery is something I have personally been trying to get better at as I train to qualify for the Boston Marathon. Sleep is at the core of recovery and there weren't many tools out there to keep me focused and motivated so I created one.
Looking forward to hearing your feedback!
Best regards, Chad

I just about always get 8 hours a night (except when I had small babies waking every 2 hours every night) and never took a sleeping pill in my life. I am very lucky. I believe a lot of good sleep is terribly important to good health. I try to get to bed around 10pm every night, up around 7 or 6.30.

Is this a commercial venture?
