RISE Science App
Student Wellness is excited to announce a new partnership with RISE, an energy and sleep tracker subscription app created by the team of sleep experts at Rise Science. It helps you unlock better sleep and enjoy more energy day after day.
RISE is built around two principles of sleep that researchers believe affect how we feel and perform: sleep debt and circadian rhythm. The app tracks how much sleep you owe your body and helps you pay it back while also predicting a daily energy schedule which allows you to optimize your schedule and increase performance. There is also a wealth of informational materials under the learning tab to help utilize the app to the fullest potential.
Anyone (even staff!) can download the app free until 2026 by visiting www.risescience.com/uchicago. Contact Bridget Marley (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
