Believing in the value of sleep, Project Sleep aims to improve public health by educating individuals about the importance of sleep, and bridging the gap between sleep health and sleep disorders. Sleep is the misunderstood and often-overlooked pillar of health. Sleepiness is NOT laziness.

Please join us for the seventh annual Project Sleep In 2021 (#SleepIn2021) over the weekend of March 12-14, 2021, to raise awareness of and funding for sleep hygiene, health and sleep disorders. Find out how to participate or be sponsored.

Nearly 70 percent of adults report insufficient sleep or rest at least once a month. Almost 70 percent of high school adolescents are not getting enough sleep. An estimated 1 out of 5 Americans chronically live with a circadian (sleep) disorder, yet the majority are undiagnosed.

The importance of healthy sleep during this pandemic cannot be overstated. A good night’s rest is essential for a strong immune system and healthy brain functioning. Sleep also plays a pivotal role in how we manage our moods and mental health.

Paying attention to sleep hygiene is one of the most straightforward ways that you can set yourself up for better sleep: Having both a bedroom environment and daily routines that promote consistent, uninterrupted sleep. Keeping a stable sleep schedule, making your bedroom comfortable and free of disruptions, following a relaxing pre-bed routine, and building healthy habits during the day can all contribute to ideal sleep hygiene.
