“sleep is not a thing… it is a word that we all use to describe a set of things that all are happening together.”
The attitude on sleep health in the population is changing - more and more people are going back to basic fundamentals of just being human, between diet, exercise and.. sleep. They want to feel better - and they realize how important it is.
