    Session 141: Napping for Our Mental Health

    Session 141: Napping for Our Mental Health

    Did you know that there is a direct relationship between our mental health and sleep?

    People who struggle w/mental health issues often experience sleep disturbances & people who struggle with sleep often suffer from mental health disturbances.

    It’s a vicious cycle that can be difficult to break in a “hustle hard” “team no sleep” culture where rest is viewed as laziness or weakness.

    In this week’s episode Khaliah Guillory, founder of Nap Bar, sat down to talk to us about the dangers of sleep deprivation and the steps we can begin to take to improve our sleep hygiene & routine.

    Check out this week’s episode & then go lay down!
