Why Vitamin ZZZ?

Including art that conveys the value and importance of sleep can be just as inspiring and efficacious as the curatorial, educational works included at SHC.

On a larger scale, we all need better tools for talking about health problems.  Literature is one of the best tools to break down barriers. Personal narratives, poems, and short stories can serve as compelling efforts toward that end when traditional information doesn’t inspire or motivate.

Why the title Vitamin ZZZ?

Sleep (ZZZ) is considered the third pillar of health, along with healthy diet and exercise. It’s as vital to our well being as the vitamins we take or seek out in the foods we eat.
