Today, is #WorldSleepDay. We congratulate the healthy sleepers out there who make bedtime a priority!
If you have poor sleep habits or a sleep disorder, don’t ignore that groggy feeling in the middle of the day. Brain fog, catching colds often, and being sleepy all the time are symptoms of a greater problem.
Quality Sleep, Sound Mind, Happy World is the 2022 World Sleep Day theme.
Right now, the problems in the world seem insurmountable and there is not a lot you or I can do to resolve them. This is all the more reason to focus on you and what you can do. When so many are suffering right now, do what you can to get a good night’s sleep and be healthy. This effort is a great contribution to the planet already weary with sick, tired people.
It is a heavy time. This also reinforces how important it is to sleep well for our own mental health. It’s likely the one thing we can control in our own lives right now: when we go to bed and when we get up. Have no doubt that quality sleep leads to a sounder mind and promotes happiness.
One of the main goals of World Sleep Day is to create awareness of the importance of quality sleep. It is also to educate people about sleep disorders and how serious they can be. Today is a global call to action to help humanity, in normal times, live longer and happier. In these difficult times, it may be even more important.
It’s important to realize that some sleep disorders can be life threatening. This is especially true when they go undiagnosed and untreated. If you suspect that you or a loved one may have a serious sleep disorder, NOW is the time to get professional help. It might be the difference between a lively life and an early death.
