Our goal

Poor sleep is a major problem in today's fast-paced modern society, reducing productivity, affecting social relationships and causing numerous health problems. The aim of Somnoactive is to create an effective routine that promotes regular and improved sleep and therefore overall wellbeing. 

Our hypothesis is that by following a short, low-threshold daily exercise routine that includes strength, stretching and mindfulness exercises, along with scientifically proven measures to enhance the circadian rhythm, we can have a positive impact on people's sleep. Among other things, we hope to reduce the time it takes the participants to fall asleep, reduce the number of times they wake up during the night, increase the feeling of restfulness in the morning and reduce the feeling of tiredness during the day. 

How do we want to achieve that?

In summary, our student research project aims to create an easy-to-implement daily routine that promotes effective sleep. By combining a daily exercise routine with scientifically proven measures, we hope to see an improvement in participants' sleep quality. During the 30-day study period, participants will follow our short daily morning exercise routine and will be provided with suggestions for improved sleep hygiene. Sleep specific data, collected before, during and after our intervention period by sleep trackers, will be compared to analyze changes. Additionally, questionnaires will be used at different stages of the trial, to investigate prior knowledge on sleep hygiene and collect qualitative data about the participants experiences.
