World Sleep Day

What does sleep power for you?

What does sleep power in your life? For some people, sleep powers physical activities like biking or running. For others, sleep powers work performance and critical thinking.

Sleep is a contributing factor to everyone’s health and it transcends geographic, cultural and socioeconomic boundaries. For World Sleep Day 2015, Philips is committed to increasing the awareness of sleep as a powerful engine for all of our daily activities.

How the world sleeps

In honor of World Sleep Day, Philips executed a 10-country survey 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.

In addition to addressing potential sleep disorders, it is important to embrace behaviors that can improve your sleep. Life’s stressors can keep anyone up at night, but small changes can offset stress triggers and prepare your body for the rest it needs.

Throughout the week leading up to World Sleep Day, March 9-13, Philips is hosting a #BeWellSleepWell challenge to empower people to take back control of their sleep and overall health.

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.
