Sleep Awareness Week, the National Sleep Foundation’s annual campaign to educate the public about the importance of sleep in health and safety, will be observed March 6–12, 2016. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the Sleep Research Society recommend that adults aged 18–60 years sleep ≥7 hours each night to promote optimal health and well-being (1). However, 35% of U.S. adults report typically sleeping <7 hours (2). Adults who do not get enough sleep on a regular basis are more likely to suffer from chronic conditions, such as obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, and poor mental health (1).
