World Sleep Day: Are Indians Getting Quality Sleep?

Yesterday, that is March 14th was the World Sleep Day, a day the World thinks about the quality and quantity of sleep it gets.

The experts in US say the majority of Americans aren’t getting enough sleep. When measured by length, continuity, and how deep of a sleep one gets, the experts found that more than 70 percent of people in the U.S. get less than 8 hours of sleep a day. It’s like a person complaining that he has not slept 8 hours in a long time.

The picture will not be very much different in India; where stress of day to day living and physiological factors prevent a sizable number of people from getting sound sleep.

Health experts inform that getting enough sound sleep each night can improve our emotional balance and help us maintain good health and a healthy weight.

PS: If you require an alarm to wake you up in the morning; and if you feel dizzy or devoid of energy all day, then chances are you may not be getting adequate sleep. Consult a qualified doctor for your sleep deprivation.
