National Sleep Awareness Week

Sleep is Essential to a Healthy Life

Sleep plays a pivotal role in helping your body and brain function properly. Getting insufficient sleep can hurt your overall health and has even been linked to a higher risk of conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.

National Sleep Awareness Week is March 13-19, 2022. The National Sleep Foundation takes a week each year to remind people how important sleep is to living a healthy life. This year’s campaign is about helping you become your Best Slept Self.
