World Sleep Day is on March 17, advocating for healthy sleep, conveniently just a few days after the Spring Ahead of Daylight Savings. Even though I know sleep is important (and enjoyable!), I remember being a young adult and between having a job, friends, homework, and spending time with my family, healthy sleep was literally last on my priority list.
Fast forward to being an adult, and now it’s kid tuck-ins, answering emails, emptying the dishwasher, and Netflix that stands between me, and my pillow and a night of good, healthy sleep.
But, according to our preventative health provider Rachael Marshal, FNP-C, Services achieving good sleep is crucial for recharging our bodies so we can fight off disease, and refreshing our brains so we are alert and functioning well while we are awake.
She has some ideas to help us. But first, we want to know what healthy sleep habits you already have so we can focus on sharing ideas that can best serve you where you are.
To that end, will you please fill out this survey? Then come back next week to see how you and your peers are sleeping!
