World Sleep Day- The Friday before Spring Vernal Equinox

The day of the reversal or spring equinox falls every year on March 20th. This is a day where the length of daytime hours equals the hours of night and spring begins. From here the hours of light get longer and the hours of darkness shorten. So Friday before that is World Sleep Day, a great day to grab a long nap or wake up late in the morning if possible or sleep all day.
World Sleep Day is an annual event designed to help people with sleep problems, teach people everywhere about the importance of sleep and change the way people see and experience sleep by providing valuable resources to help them sleep well in their daily lives.
World Sleep Day focuses on issues related to sleep, sleep medicine, sleep education and the social effects that sleep deprivation has on daily life.
The day is organized by the World Sleep Day Organization (WSD) and aims to reduce the burden of sleep problems on society through better prevention and management of sleep disorders.
Sleep can be one of the most valued aspects of people's lives, but for those who suffer from sleep problems, getting enough hours of sleep can be a real challenge.
According to the American Sleep Association, over 50 to 70 million people suffer from sleep disorders, over 25 million suffer from sleep apnea, and the most commonly reported sleep problem is insomnia.
On the organization's website you will find interesting activities on the subject of sleep, consult with sleep experts and learn about sleep disorders.
