This ray hunts at night
And spends days with friends.
It works out all right
That fish never sleep.

Fish never sleep, but they can help us Catch ZZZs to escape stress.

Little Ray's friends often ask: Do Fish Sleep? Fish never sleep in the same manner as land mammals. Sharks are the only fish that can close their eyes, but they do not use this ability for sleeping. Because they do not have eyelids, all other fish also rest with their eyes wide open. While fish are resting, they retain awareness of their surroundings. Although sleep and rest are not the same, they both serve as restorative functions that can help escape stress.

Stingrays, like Little Ray, are fish that never sleep. However, all fish enter into a bubble-like state that insulates them from active swimming and hunting activities. This restfulness enables Little Ray to help people daydream, rest, catch ZZZs and escape stress arising from business, school and life challenges. In the following 20-second video with white noise, Little Ray gives sleep deprived friends a restful sleep technique for children and adults to try.

Young entrepreneurs, like Little Ray, tend to lose a lot of sleep and fail to get sufficient rest while learning and trying a lot of different things to plan, develop, build, promote and sell startups. What seems to help some individuals with their studies, business and life balance may need adjustment to work for others. Although fish never sleep, Little Ray's video offers a relaxing little rest break from activity. To escape stress, follow Little Ray in this new way to catch ZZZs. Fish never sleep, but they can help children and adults improve productivity, memory and health through restorative rest.

Those who cannot relax with sound can turn down the volume on Little Ray's videos, featuring stingrays, sharks and armadillos for kids. Although fish never sleep, their natural world and this video offers calming sound. Therefore, we hope you will listen to the sound at least once. We replaced each of the original Little Ray videos to add sound, losing all views and comments in the process.

The words in this video may help you catch ZZZs and escape stress. This video presents one of the many ways that fun and educational stingrays for children also can be of interest and assistance to adults: “We will not count sheep. They might fall to sleep. We will count stingrays. They're up nights and days.” (21 seconds).
