We all know that sleep is important. In fact, without adequate sleep, our mental and physical health deteriorates rapidly, impacting our daily functioning and sometimes putting ourselves and others at danger. And the problem, is that with poor sleep hygiene, many of us have been living for so long with chronically poor sleep, we don't even realize the impact it is having on our daily lives. For this and so many other reasons, I have invested a lot of personal and professional time in learning about sleep and ways to improve our sleep hygiene! See some of the products that help me and the people I work with.
Oh and if you want to learn more about why sleep is important (and why you should get the hell off of your phones at night), check out this article from Johns Hopkins.
