Sleeeeeep — Hashtags of the Week (HOTW): (Week of March 17, 2014)


Z's: Sleep Test Rendering

I bet everyone noticed the Spring time change to Daylight Savings last week. So I bet you really understand the logic of why Sleep Awareness Week is that same week! Sleep Awareness Week is both about the importance of sleep for health, what are good practices for “sleep hygiene,” as well as awareness about various sleep disorders in order to help people recognize these in themselves and be more sensitive to those who have them. The image at the beginning of this post is representative of some of the sleep disorders in my own family (a picture of my son, drawn by my daughter), so this is a topic near and dear to my heart in many ways.

The main hashtag for Sleep Awareness Week was #sleepweek, but they did a clever thing by combining it with various other conditions, usually (but not always) focused on a day of that week, to keep the theme going. Did you know there is an Insomnia Day? Yeah, for everyone! Interesting. Some of the other conditions highlighted included narcolepsy, cataplexy, sleep apnea, and others. There was also a lot of information about parenting and self-tracking for sleep, so much interesting information for “sleep literacy.”
