Sleep is a vital, often neglected, component of every person’s overall health and well-being. Sleep is important because it enables the body to repair and be fit and ready for another day. So what is World Sleep Day all about?
World Sleep Day is an annual event sponsored by World Sleep Society to raise awareness of sleep disorders and highlight the burden that they place on society. Some of the most common sleep disorders are snoring, insomnia, nightmares and sleep talking just to name a few. Most sleep disorders are preventable or treatable, yet less than one-third of sufferers seek professional help. Sleep problems constitute a global epidemic that threatens health and quality of life for up to 45% of the world’s population.
Funnily enough one of most common reasons why people don't get enough sleep is because they take sleep for granted. Many people don't realise the importance and believe it to be a waste of time. Other reasons can be shift work, jet lag, medical conditions, too much caffeine, alcohol and stress. Despite all the reasons for lack of sleep there are some simple steps we can take to improve our sleeping habits.
