Dr. Sophie Bostock is a Sleep Evangelist at Sleepio, whose research interests include the links between sleep, well-being, health and performance. She has been awarded an NHS Innovation Accelerator Fellowship, collaborates with colleagues at the Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute at the University of Oxford, and has featured as a sleep expert for the BBC, The Times, ITV, and TEDx.

Sleep is a cornerstone of mental health and well-being. Yet as the case for sleep grows, so do the temptations not to! Why do so many of us find it so hard to stick to the recommended 7+ hours of slumber? What can we do when the mind won't stop racing? This talk delves into the social, environmental, psychological and biological barriers to good sleep, and suggests strategies to optimize your sleep time, no matter how much you get.
