Stop Sleep Shaming & Start Sleeping With Zero Guilt
Many adults shame themselves and create unnecessary anxiety over sleep. From taking naps to forcing the kids into their own bedrooms at night - we could all use a little less sleep shaming and a little more genuine rest. The CDC reports that 1 in 3 adults do not get enough sleep. With sleep being just as important as diet and exercise, everyone should make sleep a priority. But just how important is it that you quit feeling guilty about sleep?

You shouldn’t be embarrassed if you have to slip in a nap during the day. Some people genuinely need extra rest. If you find that you aren’t getting the right amount of sleep, you might need to see a sleep expert or participate in a sleep clinic or study. The medical professionals behind sleep medicine are your best advocate in finding just what you need to get better sleep and stop self shaming yourself into anxiety ridden sleep guilt.
