Please join me in signing the Official White House Sleep Disorder and Sleep Health Awareness Petition!
The petition poignantly states:
“We petition the Obama administration to recognize the serious impact that sleep disorders have on life, help raise awareness of sleep disorders, promote sleep health for all ages, and to encourage naps over harmful energy drinks for everyone. We must destigmatize a good night’s sleep. Sleep disorders impact workplace productivity and attrition more than any other factor combined. Sleep for health, sleep for the economy, sleep for life!”
Thank you to my friend, Bridgette of Sleepwriting Through Life, for starting the petition!
Over 40 million Americans live with chronic sleep disorders including sleep apnea (OSA), insomnia, narcolepsy, Willis Ekbom disease (or restless leg syndrome/RLS), KLS, and circadian sleep disorders.
Can we get 100,000 people to sign the petition by April 11, 2013? Together, we can.
