It’s not exactly a glamorous job, but one that requires a lot of planning.
That’s because, while the job of being a sleep expert is nothing new, the wild West is an entirely different beast.
“We have to think in a completely different way than we do in other cultures, because there’s a lot less sleep,” says Lauren Bostick, a sleep specialist at Sleepworks, a company that provides free, one-on-one sleep advice to the public.
“In a way, it’s a more dangerous job, because you’re not really sure how long you’re going to be awake.”
Bostack, who has worked in the field for years, says that there’s one thing she has learned from her career that has made her a better sleep expert.
“When I think about the whole human experience, I think of the things that are in the world,” she says.
“Sleep is just one of those things.”
Here are some of the best tips for waking up with a sense of accomplishment and peace of mind: Find a comfortable place to sleep, preferably in a dark, quiet area that you can’t see through.
You can also sleep on the floor if that’s more comfortable.
