It's sleepy time – all week!

Sleepy Time!MmmmSNORK! Wha? Oh, hey! It's what? Tuesday, you say? Oh … heh, heh.

Well, I was just, um, observing the beginning of National Sleep Awareness Week, which started yesterday (for me, at least) and runs through Sunday, March 9. As you might imagine, the National Sleep Foundation has lots of exciting activities planned for their big, week, including the National Sleep Challenge. Sleep Advocacy training sessions will be conducted in Washington, D.C., leading up to a mass somnambulation on Congress later this week. (OK, I made that last little part up.)

The point of National Sleep Awareness Week is to bring home the fact that while for many people sleep is what you do in between the times you have more important things to do, sleep itself is very important, too. The better-rested you are, the better your body and mind can function during wakefulness. There's lots of sleep-related information on the organization's Web site — next time you're wide awake in the wee hours of the morning, go have a look.
