I think that it is pressing for health leaders and the public to know the role of sleep as a root cause for exacerbation or formation of disease. Often symptoms of sleep deprivation manifest as symptoms of other diseases and without addressing sleep deprivation, we start a vicious circle. With stress daily stress, it is easy to link poor sleep to a long week, blush it off and carry on. Yet, the impact of sleep deprivation on the body continues to create damage and allow disease progression. if both healthcare leaders and the public paid attention to sleep, we can work smoothly through early detection towards easier solutions. Often people who had chronic sleep sleeplessness see it as a norm, and at that time solutions involve reframing the mindset and teaching the body that it can sleep again. I see this as the main issue, seeing sleep as an isolated element instead of seeing it as a fundamental human need is #SleepisHealth.
