The reasons why you have endless career opportunities as a Certified Sleep Science Coach?
The direct costs of sleepiness and lost productivity in the workplace is estimated at $18 billion.
Drowsy drivers are believed to be the cause for at least 100,000 police-reported crashes in the US annually.
Forty million Americans suffer debilitating sleep disorders; the majority of them are not diagnosed.
About 40 million people in the United States suffer from chronic long-term sleep disorders each year and an additional 20 million people experience occasional sleep problems.
There are more than 70 different sleep disorders, which are generally classified into one of three categories: lack of sleep (e.g., insomnia), disturbed sleep (e.g., obstructive sleep apnea), and excessive sleep (e.g., narcolepsy).
62% of American adults experience a sleep problem a few nights per week
37.9% of Americans unintentionally fell asleep during the day at least once in the past month
1,550 automobile fatalities and nearly 50,000 injuries are attributed to falling asleep each year.
Sleep and recovery are viewed by experts as being among the leading causes of poor performance in sports
20 million people suffer from restless leg syndrome
1 in 4 Americans snores
One of the skills you will learn as a Certified Sleep Science Coach is Sleep Hygiene
These practices aim to help people maintain a consistent sleep schedule, create a relaxing sleep environment, and adopt healthy habits that promote sleep. Good sleep hygiene is important because sleep plays a crucial role in maintaining physical health, mental wellbeing, and cognitive function.
Examples of good sleep hygiene practices include:
Consistent sleep schedule: Going to bed and waking up at the same time every day, including weekends.
Create a comfortable sleep environment: Keeping the bedroom dark, quiet, cool, and comfortable.
Limiting caffeine and alcohol intake: Avoiding or reducing the consumption of caffeine and alcohol close to bedtime.
Limiting screen time: Avoiding or reducing the use of electronic devices before bedtime, as they emit blue light that can interfere with sleep.
Regular exercise: Engaging in regular physical activity during the day can help promote restful sleep at night.
Relaxation techniques: Practicing relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing or meditation, before bedtime can help calm the mind and promote sleep.
Avoiding large meals and excessive fluid intake before bedtime: Eating a light snack or small meal several hours before bedtime, and avoiding large meals or excessive fluid intake close to bedtime.
Here are four basics about sleep and circadian rhythms that you will learn in extensive detail.
1. Sleep needs. Physiologically, adult humans require about 8 hours of sleep; with a range of around 7 to 9 hours. The amount of sleep an individual requires is genetically determined and “training” will not alter our unique sleep requirements. Kids and young adults from junior high/middle school years through their early 20’s physiologically require about 9 to 10 hours of sleep.
2. Sleep debt. Losing sleep can build into a cumulative sleep debt. Though most adults require about 8 hours of sleep, on average, they obtain about 1.5 hours less. This sleep loss accumulates into a sleep debt. For example, over a five-day work week, a daily 1.5 hours of sleep loss would build into a 7.5 hour sleep debt by the weekend. This equates to losing one full night of sleep (i.e., pulling an all-nighter) going into the weekend.
3. Circadian rhythms. Humans are hard-wired with a biological clock in the suprachiasmatic nucleus of the hypothalamus. This circadian (circa=around, dies=a day) clock controls the 24-hour rhythms of our physiological and behavioral activities. Its programming controls the 24-hour fluctuations in sleep/wakefulness, hormones, alertness, performance and is exhibited at the cellular level. Circadian disruption commonly occurs as a result of irregular schedules or even crossing time zones and has similar negative effects on performance, alertness, health, and mood.
4. Experience reality. How alert an individual “feels” does not always reflect reality. Generally, even though an individual might report feeling wide-awake and at peak alertness, the person’s actual performance could show significant impairment and the person might fall asleep in less than five minutes (a sign of pathological sleepiness). A person’s ratings of alertness and performance do not accurately reflect actual levels. This “disconnect” is one reason why individuals feel that sleep loss and circadian disruption have minimal or no effect.

“WOW! I’m a Professional Chef! I help people get healthy and become happy. This course was the perfect complement to my wellness business!”
“Before becoming a Certified Personal Fitness Chef, I enrolled in the Food Psychology Coaching program. Together, these two credentials have given me the career of my dreams. I help people become healthy and make great lifestyle choices. Today, I make my own schedule, earn more money than I ever have, and help dozens of people each week. It’s awesome. I am grateful!”
I am a lifelong learner, and firmly believe no matter how much we know, we can always discover more!! My brother told me about Spencer Institute, and I thank him because it really amped up my skills in coaching clients. Being a busy mom, I absolutely loved the distance learning since it fits with my hectic schedule, and I was able to do the courses at my own pace!
I completed the personal fitness chef, fitness nutrition coach and kid’s nutrition specialist programs (some from NESTA) and I am so glad that I did. Most recently, I’ve been giving talks on healthy snacking to children and I am finding that it complements my cooking schedule. It’s a nice complement to the work I do in the kitchen. I just wanted to say thanks!
