When’s the last time you heard someone brag about cutting a night short in order to hit the hay? It’s much more likely you’ve heard something along the lines of “I’ll sleep when I’m dead.” But short sleep isn’t a sign of bravery or competence or toughness. In fact, sayings like this send messages about sleep
that all too often paint a negative picture of good rest.
Continuing to spread belittling messages about sleep hurts us all — in 2013, commit to doing your part to change our national attitude toward sleep.
