After some observation, experimentation, and AB testing, SHC has decided to merge This Week’s Sleep News and SleepyHeadCENTRAL into one new website. We’ve also changed platforms and our design to update our mission and focus so we can better serve you, our reader.
You’ll have the same great content, but in a cleaner, more optimized format that frees up the curator of SHC to do more work in the field.
You can expect new original content starting next year, with fine-tuned curation targets in 2017 as well as other forward-thinking surprises, benefits, and offers.
Our most popular and useful posts can still be found here as well. Just check out our archives down at the bottom right sidebar.
Thanks for your support and do share this news with your sleep-challenged friends!

Finally, at the bottom, the nitty gritty.
We know there’s lots of boilerplate, but here are the main takeaways:
- SleepyHeadCENTRAL.com is operated by an individual who receives zero compensation for the effort. The curator provides information to the best of their ability, and the responsibility for interpreting and sharing this information rests squarely on the shoulders of the user/reader.
- Also, please do not copy and paste entire sections of SHC content for commercial use, as this is as copyright violation.
- Sharing posts through our ample social channel access points is highly encouraged, but using SHC content for your own purposes without permission (written) is considered copyright infringement.
- SHC also strives to use images that are paid for (stock), creative commons approved, public domain, original, or by permission of their owners.
SleepyHeadCENTRAL thanks you for your support! We’re looking forward to more sleep health news, information, and activism in 2017 and beyond!
