World Sleep Day in
Days to go:
World Sleep Day is a global observance intended to draw attention to the crucial role sleep plays in our overall health and wellness. Established by the World Sleep Society, the day acts as a call to action on sleep-related issues, encompassing prevention and management of sleep disorders. The observance also underscores the critical importance of proper sleep patterns in enhancing productivity, fostering mental well-being, and ensuring a better quality of life.
World Sleep Day has a significant relevance in the Indian context, given the rising tide of sleep disorders in the country. Historically, the event was established in 2008 and has been observed annually ever since. Stressful lifestyle, escalating work-related demands, and increasing digital engagement are prevalent in India's fast-paced urban environments, leading to a surge in sleep disorders. Moreover, a recent study conducted in India highlighted that close to 93% of the population is sleep-deprived, reinforcing the importance of observing World Sleep Day in India.
In India, World Sleep Day is commemorated with numerous activities chalked out to spread awareness about the impact of sleep on health. Talks, workshops, and awareness campaigns led by sleep specialists and healthcare organizations highlight the importance of good sleep hygiene. These programs encourage positive sleep habits and underline the need for timely diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders. Schools and colleges organize special sessions and distribute sleep-related educational resources. The day is observed annually on the Friday before Spring Vernal Equinox, which typically falls in the middle of March.
