World Sleep Day is an annual global call to action on the importance of healthy sleep.
The objective of the World Slepp Day is to raise awareness of the consequences that can cause sleep problems, as well as the importance of healthy sleep. This year it will be held next Friday, March 13.
World Sleep Day publicly showcases efforts to prevent and control sleep disorders. Created and organized by the World Sleep Society, World Sleep Day is an internationally recognized awareness event that brings together researchers, health professionals and patients to recognize sleep and its important impact on our health.
World Sleep Day 2020 carries the slogan, “Better Sleep, Better Life, Better Planet.” It aims to highlight sleep as a pillar of health, enabling better decision making and cognitive understanding even in big problems, such as our planet. This approach has an intentionally broad meaning, surrounding the message that quality of life can be improved with healthy sleep. Conversely, when sleep fails, health declines, decreasing the quality of life. Deep sleep is a precious function.
We believe it is important to share the following points:
- Most sleep disorders are preventable or treatable, but less than one-third of patients seek professional help.
- Sleep problems constitute a global epidemic that threatens the health and quality of life of up to 45% of the world’s population.
- A better understanding of sleep conditions and more research in the area will help reduce the burden of sleep disorders in society.
- Three elements of good quality sleep are:
- Duration: the duration of sleep should be sufficient for the sleeper to rest and be alert the next day.
- Continuity: sleep periods should be continuous without fragmentation.
- Depth: sleep should be deep enough to be restorative.
For the entire Estivill Sleep Clinic team, every day is World Sleep Day, because our role is to take care of your sleep and the sleep of those around you.
