MAPA March 2019 PSA


National Sleep Awareness Month

With the second Sunday in March heralding the change to daylight saving time there is a high probability that we will all be somewhat sleep deprived for a few days. MAPA encourages you to make the lifestyle changes necessary to adjust to the change.


Quality sleep is as essential to survival as food and water. Without sleep you can’t form or maintain the pathways in your brain that let you learn and create new memories, and it’s harder to concentrate and respond quickly. Long-term sleep deprivation has been linked to several chronic conditions including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and depression. 


Here are some basic tips for improving your sleep:

  • Keep a consistent sleep schedule. Get up at the same time every day, even on weekends or during vacations.
  • Set a bedtime that is early enough for you to get at least 7 hours of sleep.
  • Establish a relaxing bedtime routine.
  • Make your bedroom quiet and relaxing. Keep the room at a comfortable, cool temperature. 
  • Turn off electronic devices at least 30 minutes before bedtime.
  • Don’t eat a large meal before bedtime. If you are hungry at night, eat a light, healthy snack.
