It is with great pleasure, I welcome you to this annual occasion of the World Sleep day, this year world sleep day is tagged “Sound Sleep, Sound Health”.
Thou hast no figures nor no fantasies, Which busy care draws in the brains of men; Therefore thou sleep’t so sound. —William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
In the passage above, the playwright’s tragic antihero Brutus enviously reflects on the timeless truth that people without worries and anxieties (in this case, his servant Lucius) generally enjoy the most peaceful and uninterrupted rest.Sound sleep is a treasured function and one of the core pillars of health. When sleep fails, health declines and there is decreasing quality of life.
Also, the former US president Bill Clinton once admitted, “Every important mistake I’ve made in my life I made when I was tired.”
Mckinsey quarterly report of Feb, 2016, “The organizational cost of insufficient sleep” shows that Sleep-awareness programs can produce better leaders, much of Nigeria current economic challenges which can be traced to years of bad leadership, would have been averted if we had better sleep awareness programs in our society.This is why Vitafoam Nig.
