Dr. Mike starts last night - do you??
Being a doctor is one of the toughest jobs out there. Not only are you working some of the longest hours, but at any moment you may find yourself literally holding a life in your hands. The stakes are high - and the risks of sleep deprivation are even higher.
Dr. Mikhail "Mike" Varshavski knows this only too well. Dubbed "the Sexiest Doctor Alive" by his 2 million+ followers on Instagram, Dr. Mike's smouldering selfies put an (admittedly extremely attractive) face to one of the world's most demanding professions - even at 2 and 3 and 4am.
Kala is excited to partner with Dr. Mike to spread awareness of the paramount importance of sleep, especially in the medical field and other high-demand, high-intensity workplaces.

In these atmospheres, sleep can often be dismissed as a luxury that high achievers can't afford - rather than the essential need that enables them to do the work they do.
You might think, looking at his photos, that his off-hours are pretty much dedicated to looking fabulous; but Dr. Mike's days don't end at the hospital. Like many whose work can be overwhelming, Dr. Mike copes by maintaining a work-life balance: making sure to take time for family, friends, exercise, man's best friend (in this case, an adorable husky), and - an absolute requirement, given all the above - getting enough sleep.
