About Somnia

Conventional wisdom tells us that we need 8 hours of sleep every night to be a healthy, well-functioning human being.

If you do the math, that’s a third of every day we spend shut down; a third of our lives. Some may overlook this third as time that doesn’t really count. Here at Somnia we strive to capture the night by focusing on sleep.

Our mission is to help readers explore life and sleep by connecting the dots between the two where connections might not be obvious.

We do this by providing in-depth and thoughtful reporting on stories that touch on lifestyle, science, business, art, culture, and health. Using a multimedia approach with articles, photo stories, videos, online blogging, social media, and personal interviews, we create content that is both enlightening and entertaining to a variety of readers.
