World Sleep Day

Learn more about the meaning and importance of sleep and the sleeping challenges that need tackling.

World Sleep Day, observed annually on the Friday before the Spring Equinox, is a global initiative highlighting the importance of quality sleep and its impact on human health. Established by the World Sleep Society, this day serves as a platform to raise awareness about sleep-related issues, promote healthy sleep habits, and advocate for better sleep health policies worldwide.


According to the World Health Organization (WHO), inadequate sleep affects approximately one-third of adults globally, with sleep disorders such as insomnia and sleep apnea being prevalent. Studies indicate that insufficient sleep is associated with a myriad of health concerns, including cardiovascular diseases, obesity, diabetes, depression, and impaired cognitive function. 


The economic impact of poor sleep is also significant, with a study estimating that sleep disorders cost the US economy $ 411 billion annually in lost productivity and healthcare expenses.


In recent years, sleep quality has garnered increasing attention, with researchers and health professionals emphasising the importance of both duration and quality of sleep for overall well-being. Surveys conducted by organisations like the National Sleep Foundation reveal that a significant percentage of adults report regularly experiencing poor sleep quality, characterised by difficulties falling asleep, frequent awakenings during the night, and non-restorative sleep.

On World Sleep Day, communities worldwide address these concerns and promote healthy sleep practices. Educational initiatives, public events, and social media campaigns aim to empower individuals to prioritise sleep and adopt strategies for improving sleep quality. 


Some practical tips include establishing a consistent sleep schedule, creating a conducive sleep environment by keeping the room dark and quiet and practising relaxation techniques such as deep breathing or meditation before bedtime. The anatomē team has gathered plenty of helpful information and will bring you details on each of these and more over the next month.

As we commemorate World Sleep Day, we must recognise the significance of quality sleep in maintaining physical, mental, and emotional well-being. 

By fostering a culture of sleep awareness, embracing healthy sleep habits, good practices, and using supporting formulations made from natural ingredients, we can strive towards a world where everyone enjoys restful and rejuvenating sleep each night. 

That's anatomē's mission.
