Due to their usability, low cost and widespread availability, sleep tracking devices are becoming more popular for researchers to use as tools for investigating the connections between sleep, circadian rhythms, and health.

Consumer sleep trackers offer scientists the chance to generate information outside of the laboratory, in more natural home environments.

Dr. Dawn Molina, DAOM, LAc. of Tampa Bay Holistic Wellness joins Gayle Guyardo the host of the nationally syndicated health and wellness show Bloom to share why these devices could be considered a window into your overall health.

You can watch Bloom in the Tampa Bay Market weekdays at 2pm on WFLA News Channel 8.

Bloom also airs in 40 markets across the country, with a reach of approximately 36 million households, and in Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Madison, WI.
