CantSleep.org: Who We Are

Font size Print

CantSleep.org is a communal hub of researchers who care about the same thing you do: sleep. Through our own independent data aggregation, we aspire to provide the average man and woman factual, relevant information about all things sleep. After all, the average person spends one third of their life asleep - or they should, anyway. But that isn't always the case. According to the statistics:

  • Men are getting less sleep than their female counterparts
  • Most people average between 5 and 1/2 to 6 hours of sleep at night - while doctors insist we need at least 8 to 10
  • A lack of exercise is positively correlated with a lack of healthy sleep
  • 50% of all people in the developed world are taking some sort of sleep aid at night
  • Becoming a parent is a known contributor to a lack of sleep
  • According to the CDC, people between the ages of 25 to 54 have the most trouble sleeping

Who You Are

You're a person just like us - you work hard, you try to live your best life, and you need sleep in order to stay healthy and well. But like millions of people around the world, you aren't getting it. And we're here to help you figure out why. Most people who visit our site looking for answers are suffering from one or more of the following issues:

  • Taking too long to fall asleep
  • Going one or more nights in a row with little to no sleep at all

  • Interrupted sleep
  • Short, incomplete sleep cycles
  • Acute or chronic sleep deprivation
  • Fatigue, lethargy, and cognitive impairments associated with their lack of sleep

We take pride in providing people like you with scientifically accurate data on the subject of sleep. We comb through the literature in order to present you with the most up-to-date information on the intersectionality sleep, human health, and how to improve both the quantity and the quality of your sleep. We aren't doing this to make a profit; our intention is to make a positive and beneficial impact on your quality of life. We have helped thousands of people equip themselves with the tools and the products they need to get the high quality rest they deserve. And here's what they have to say:

What We Do

We do investigative research and post new, exciting discoveries about sleep online. We closely follow emerging data from highly respected organizations like the Center for Human Sleep Science; the National Institute of Health; the World Health Organization; and many more. We would never insult your intelligence by regurgitating the same outdated, questionably accurate information you would get from some doctor-themed daytime TV talk show. Instead, we dig into the hard science to separate truth from fiction. And we process the information we find so as to make a practical, actionable difference in your life.

But information is only half the battle. Knowing everything in the world about sleep isn't going to do a bit of good if you don't have real, tangible solutions to the problem. We use our knowledge about sleep, the importance of sleep, and how sleep works in the human body to test the solutions available today. We evaluate sleep remedies, strategies, and sleep supplements in order to help people get better quality rest. Not all sleeping products out there are created equal, and we want to help people find the solutions which will work best for them and their busy lifestyle.

Please note that cantsleep.org does not sell any products; we simply review them.
