This type of wellness programming is a quiet, relatively uncelebrated corner of Netflix’s catalog, but it’s sure to find a grateful audience. A show questioning whether screens in bed are actually a good idea might seem detrimental to the streamer’s hold on audiences, but that emphasis on health over endless watching is a breath of fresh air. This probably won’t make anybody’s “best new shows on Netflix” list, but it might be a nice way to end a night of streaming.
All seven episodes of Headspace Guide to Sleep will be available on Netflix April 28. Check out the trailer and official synopsis below:
