Phoenix, Arizona – Insomnia affects between 30-45 percent of adults and the affects can be deadly. It’s been shown that lack of sleep or poor-quality sleep also leaves us more vulnerable to accidents. In addition, people with insomnia are seven times more likely to become involved in an accident causing death or serious injury than good sleepers.
According to the National Institute of Health, sleep problems constitute a global epidemic that threatens health and quality of life for up to 45% of the world’s population.
March has several sleep-related “holidays,” that celebrate sleep health and encourage the public to prioritize sleep to improve their overall health and well-being.
