...People who brag about barely sleeping. I am so over coworkers who act stressed and overworked and brag about only sleeping 4-6 hours per night* like it makes them special. We are all stressed and busy. Lack of sleep does not make you better at your job or cooler or some kind of hero. I do not feel ashamed for needing a solid 9+ hours of sleep per night. It’s the only way I stay functional and I feel no shame. Sleep and self care are not shameful activities.
