World Sleep Day

Here’s a nice short riff about World Sleep Day, which I must have slept through because it happened back in March! This is a good list of bullet points about the importance of sleep. Once again, you DON’T snooze you lose.

Here are some snippets:

  • Sleep problems constitute a global epidemic that threatens health and quality of life for up to 45% of the world’s population.

  • 35% of people do not feel they get enough sleep, impacting both their physical and mental health.

  • A US study has estimated the annual costs of insomnia to be between $92.5 billion and $107.5 billion.

  • Most sleep disorders are preventable or treatable, yet less than one-third of sufferers seek professional help.

And for those who want to know how World Sleep Day came about, here you go – a link that includes a sacrine video sure to put you to sleep!
