World Sleep Day

How do you prioritize sleep?

With a focus on health at its core, Philips understands that good sleep, in addition to eating well and exercising, is one of the key pieces to nurturing a healthy lifestyle. But as daily priorities shift and time becomes scarce, sleep is often the first on the list to be pushed aside. In honor of World Sleep Day, Philips executed a 5-country survey to generate insights into how sleep impacts people’s lives from work to relationships, and what they are (or are not) doing to improve their sleep around the world. Through these findings, Philips aims to start a conversation about an important yet often forgotten pillar of overall health and wellbeing: sleep health.

Sleep is a critical element of anyone’s health. Beyond raising awareness through education about the importance of sleep, Philips is innovating sleep solutions that work together to promote better health – from clinical devices designed to help people with sleep disorders, to lighting solutions to help people start their days naturally.

Unfiltered Sleep: The Global Prioritization Puzzle

In honor of World Sleep Day 2017, Philips executed a 5-country survey to generate insights into how sleep impacts people’s lives from work to relationships, and what they are (or are not) doing to improve their sleep around the world. The survey highlighted the perception and prioritization of sleep collected from a more than 6,000 people across 5 countries.

The power of information lies in how you use it. Our goal is to use information from this year’s sleep survey to empower you to make positive changes to your daily routine that will enable a better night’s sleep and begin to prioritize sleep. Suggestions include:

  • Understanding the ways that lack of sleep impacts all facets of life – work, relationships, productivity
  • Identifying the various factors that might be contributing to the problem
  • Building a bedtime routine and maintaining it
  • Leaving work at the office, allowing you to spend more time with your family or with your significant other

2015 World Sleep Day survey findings

On World Sleep Day 2015, Philips executed a similar survey entitled “Sleep: A Global Perspective,” to generate new insights into how sleep impacts people’s lives, what keeps them up at night and what they are (or are not) doing to improve their sleep, around the world. The 2015 survey highlighted sleep trends and habits collected from nearly 8,000 people across 10 countries. Philips instituted a new survey and subsequent findings in 2017 as part of the company’s commitment to raising awareness through education about the importance of sleep.

How are you sleeping?

The first step to better rest is investigating your risk of an underlying sleep disorder. A significant percentage of the global population is estimated to suffer from disrupted sleep, and sleep apnea is one of the most common of sleep disorders that is often undiagnosed.

If you think you might be at risk for sleep apnea, do something good for your health today by taking the sleep apnea risk assessment.

We also invite you to share the risk assessment with loved ones who you think might be suffering from sleep apnea, so they can get the help they need to sleep better.
