Sleep well to live well: World Sleep Day message
World Sleep Day was celebrated on March 16, the Friday before Spring Vernal Equinox, to highlight the importance of sound sleep of requisite hours and take a call on the issues related to sleeping behaviour.

The observance is being held since 2008 to highlight the benefits of good and healthy sleep and promote the prevention and management of sleep disorders.

The observance is organized by the World Sleep Day Committee of World Sleep Society. The aim to lessen the burden of sleep problems on society through better prevention and management of sleep disorders, say the organizers.

It is true that humans have to learn every damn thing, right from getting toilet training to sound sleep training. Sleep is also a topic to learn in various subject areas in physiology, psychology, medicine, education, sociology and performance.

According to World Sleep Society, there is a dire need to raise the awareness about 'sleep disorders and their better understanding and preventability, and to reduce the burden of sleep problems on society that constitute a global epidemic and threatens health and quality of life for as much as 45 per cent of the world's population'.

At least seven hours of sleep at night has been found to be requisite for humans as per various sleep studies. Sound sleep cools down the body to increase the blood flow to keep you fit and fine. The studies have also proved that seven hours of sleep enhances your subjective well being and brain power.

It needs to be understood that sleep deprivation leads to heart, kidney, and blood pressure problems thus shortening life.

My message: To sleep well is to live well.
