It's time to take sleep back to the basics.
There's no doubt we've fallen out of touch with our natural sleep rhythm as we prioritize both work and play in its place. We spend our working days sedentary with screens rather than taking in much-needed sunshine outdoors, and we beam distruptive blue lights in our bedrooms just moments before attempting to drift off to dreamland.
It's high time we take a cue from this overwhelmingly cute collection of animals following their natural instincts and get inspired to adjust that priority list a little bit. When it comes to logging plenty of Z's and reaping all of their benefits, our furry friends are true professionals.
Here are 15 adorable animals who will undoubtedly inspire a perfect night's sleep the next time your head hits that pillow.
