There is a great deal of research in the medical community supporting the positive impacts on sleep and daily functioning. When we make a commitment to community restfulness, we are setting the standard for our expectations on general well-being. We set the tone for sustainable routines that will have life-long enhancement on performance and achievements. Proper sleep hygiene is often overlooked or taken lightly. There is much to be gained if there is Institution-wide support for sleep health and education.
