There’s been a lot going on in our lives since the start of the pandemic that could have a significant impact on our sleep quality and habits. It’s no surprise that many of us are struggling to get a good night’s rest with the constant change in daily routine. However, Netflix has announced a new partnership with Vox Media Studios and the guided meditation company Headspace, which could make sleepless nights a thing of the past.

The upcoming Headspace Guide to Sleep series will debunk sleep myths and misconceptions while offering information on how to get better sleep. The trailer teases some of the topics the series will cover in each 15-minute episode, ranging from how many hours of sleep do you actually need to the effectiveness of sleep aid products.

In line with Headspace’s branding, the Headspace Guide To Sleep trailer highlights the benefits of mindfulness and meditation:

What is the Headspace Guide to Sleep?

Following the Headspace Guide to Meditation, which debuted on the streamer in January, Headspace Guide to Sleep is the second of three series. Like the first, each episode of Headspace Guide to Sleep will begin with science-based facts about the subject and end with a guided wind-down. While the topic for the third and final season has yet to be announced, Netflix has stated that it will be an “interactive” experience.

This form of wellness will almost certainly find a place in Netflix’s top picks library. The show will explore a variety of interesting and relatable subjects, such as whether having screens in bed is a good idea or whether they're detrimental to the sleep quality we get. 

Even if wellness isn’t on everyone's radar, putting a focus on wellbeing over constant viewing is refreshing.
