Sleeping with the Enemy

My 20:20 vision is that we need to open our eyes to the reality of how significant sleep is in our lives. I want to offer the audience a new perspective of the prioritisation of sleep by debunking damaging stereotypes.


Janeile’s talk will explore the stereotypes and stigmatizing tropes of tiredness and ‘lazy teenagers’, and how these damaging labels can lead to a destruction of both mental and physical health. Using their story, Janeile will discuss the impact of sleep conditions on everyday life, and how the ‘sleep is for the weak’ standard pushed by institutions plays a huge role in the extent of acceptance of sleep.
