National Sleep Awareness Week, observed in March and sponsored by the National Sleep Foundation, is an opportunity to stop and think about your sleep habits, realize how much they impact your well-being, and take a step toward improving them.
National Sleep Awareness Week and The National Sleep Foundation stresses that adults need seven to nine hours of sleep per night; less may pose serious consequences to a person's health and safety. For example, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has found that people who reported sleeping six hours or less per night were significantly more likely to fall asleep while driving than those who reported sleeping seven to nine hours nightly.
