World Sleep Day 2015.
March 11, 2015
World Sleep Day is organized by the World Association of Sleep Medicine (WASM), an international association whose mission is to advance sleep health worldwide. For practical steps to start your journey toward quality sleep, check out WASM’s 10 Commandments of Sleep found at www.worldsleepday.org.
This year, WASM is emphasizing awareness to insomnia with the slogan “When Sleep is Sound, Health and Happiness Abound.”
You can participate in World Sleep Day by becoming a delegate.
Last year, World Sleep Day delegates worked locally to spread awareness of sleep issues by hosting special events, translating the WASM 10 Commandments into various languages, putting together a full-marathon, displaying a life-size bed in multiple places across a city, having a Red Cross Ambulance distribute booklets and pamphlets on sleep, hosting school events for hundreds of children, there were many press conferences around the world, and lots of television coverage nationally and internationally.
