Sleep deprivation is a real thing but many doctors do not spend much time in training regarding ways to treat it. It is a global problem though some countries such as Canada and Singapore are leading the research on not getting enough sleep. There are many reasons for not getting proper rest such as insomnia, snoring, shift work, sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, narcolepsy, and other medical conditions. Quiet Wakefulness may be a solution to getting the rest you need. It is basically resting while awake with your eyes closed. It does not create sleep inertia, and does promote alertness and improves your mood. It relaxes the muscles and organs and creates productivity. It does not replace naps but it does provide a solution for mid afternoon tiredness.
- Your body requires a certain amount of sleep to function properly
- Take a break during the day in a quiet room where you can close your eyes
- Improved behavior such as a boost in mood, relaxation of muscles and increased alertness are all benefits of quiet wakefulness
“40 percent of global adults report that their sleep “has gotten worse over the past five years,” compared with 26 percent who say that their sleep has gotten better.”
