Do you count enough sheep?

Sleep, we all need it, but do we get enough? Sadly, most likely not.

Sleep is essential to feeling refreshed and rested, and is an indispensable part of a healthy lifestyle. Beginning today, the National Sleep Foundation (NFS) will celebrate its annual event "National Sleep Awareness Week" to raise awareness regarding the benefits of sleep, and its importance to your safety.

The NFS has investigated many topics over its nearly 20 years of existence. Past polls have looked at sleep and the modern family, revealing many interesting data points around both adults and children reacting to factors such as technology in the bedroom and how sleep impacts overall growth and development.
