A better tomorrow starts tonight. Discover how Unmind can arm you with the knowledge, insights and proven strategies needed for A+ sleep.

The antidote to toxic sleep culture

From a young age, we’re told to leap out of bed, slap on a smile, and start being damn well productive. Social media amplifies this myth. People use bullet-point lists – they tell us to work hard. Focus more. Wake up even earlier.

Yet this wide-awake culture doesn’t come cost-free. Sleep deprivation makes us irritable, exhausted and stressed. Against such impossible ideals, our jobs feel doomed, relationships strained, reputations at stake. 

We blame this on anything but our basic need for rest. It’s not our fault. We live in a society that doesn’t respect the power of sleep.

But wait. The science is in: sleep improves mental health. After a good night’s rest, we’re better able to face life’s challenges with rationality and resilience. So it’s time we stop hitting snooze on our own wellbeing. Starting tonight: Rest up. Dream big. Sleep shamelessly.

"The problem with the eight-hour myth is, guess what, it’s a myth. Some of us need six-hours of sleep a night, some need seven, some need nine. Eight-hours is just the mean. Use how you feel as the benchmark, in terms of whether there might be an issue with your sleep."
