Sleep on this

From Aeon: “Sleep is no longer personal, transcendent and romantic – it is medical, mundane and pragmatic. Sleep has been transformed from a deeply personal experience to a physiological process; from the mythical to the medical; and from the romantic to the marketable. Our misconstrued sense of sleep and consequent obsession with managing it are the most critical overlooked factors in the contemporary epidemic of sleep loss. Despite decades of innovative sleep research, escalating numbers of new sleep specialists and clinics … the epidemic of insufficient sleep and insomnia appears to be getting worse.”
