DID YOU KNOW?
More than one-third of adults aren’t getting the recommended amount of sleep and feel sleepy during the day at least half the week or more. This affects mood, mental sharpness, and productivity.
Feeling tired impacts work performance, ability to exercise, and negatively affects relationships with friends and family. Lack of sleep is also linked to diseases such as Alzheimer's, diabetes, and heart disease.
