Not only, medical courses with specialization in sleep medicine have come up, but few research journals devoted to sleep medicine and international academic bodies and associations have also been started. At the international level, sleep clinics have been established in many countries consequent to specialization in sleep medicine by the doctors.
So much so, the World Association of Sleep Medicine and American Academy of Sleep medicine has declared the third Friday of March as World Sleep Day since 2008, which was observed on March 14 this year with the theme 'Restful Sleep, Easy Breathing, Healthy Body'.

So, we must get into the habit of sound sleep to stay fighting fit.
