Our Mission


The Sleep Advisor was created out of frustration by Jill, Sarah and Mark. We asked our friends about how they found information about sleep topics. Most of them kept saying they go online and read what shows up in Google. After hearing that, we decided to build the ultimate resource ourselves. We want everyone to achieve optimal sleep and wake up each day with more energy and focus.

Our site covers a broad range of sleep topics. We love updating our buyer’s guide with the latest sleep gear, but we also understand the importance of sleep education. Our goal is to have our visitors leave our site more knowledgeable about sleep health compared to when they arrived. If you’d like to learn more, check out some of our featured content:
