Why I Am Obsessed With Sleep

Hi, I am Mollie

I am the creator of Sleep Is A Skill, a company that optimizes people’s sleep through a unique blend of technology, accountability, and behavioral change. The company was born from “scratching her own itch” after a lifetime of poor sleep habits culminated into a mega-challenging bout of insomnia for months without end. With a background in, she went down the rabbit hole to solve her sleep disturbances without sleeping aids. She became fascinated with chronobiology, and by extension, its practical applications to restore a state of homeostasis not only to her sleep but also to her life as a whole. Knowing the difference between a life with sleep and without, she’s now dedicated her life to sharing the forgotten skill set of sleep.

The Behind The Scenes Story

I'm Mollie McGlocklin and I am on a mission to change the conversation around sleep.

One of the lowest and scariest moments of my life was when I started to have a panic attack in Rome... in THE Coliseum (yes, THAT one)...in the middle of a tour group. I hadn’t slept in almost 3 days and this particular tipping point came on the heels of months of chronic sleep deprivation. I felt embarrassed and ashamed. But most of all, I felt terrified that it would always be this way. I didn’t know what to do or where to turn. Every doctor's conversation or google search ended in some sort of pill or supplement. I felt like there was no clear path available to calm down my very physical anxiety, without pills, long enough to make my sleep 'normal' again.

Desperate, I took the following actions:
  • I had phone calls with countless doctors
  • I reached out to sleep clinics
  • I joined all of the top “sleep solution” courses
  • I scoured the latest sleep studies
  • I kept detailed sleep logs
  • I read all the "must-read" books on sleep
  • I read the "obscure" books on sleep
  • I bought every sleep gadget
  • I worked with multiple wellness centers
  • I joined facebook groups focused on sleep
  • I tried hypnosis
  • I attended relaxation/meditation events
  • I worked with functional medicine doctors
  • I got boatloads of bloodwork done
  • I spent untold amounts of money looking for "the answer"
Behind it all, what I wanted to know that it was going to be okay. I wanted the success stories. I wanted to hear from others who had been through what I had been through...and made it to other side happy & healthy. Instead, it felt like the loudest voices were the ones that still suffering.

My road to recovery did not have to be so hard, lonely, shameful, and confusing.

And now that I'm not only surviving but thriving with my sleep, I'm committed that others get to experience that feeling too. It doesn't have to be so hard.

I am living proof that if a chronically sleep deprived night owl can transform their habits and sleep without pills...anyone can do it!
