World Sleep Day: 20 Percent World’s Population is sleep deprived

Twenty percent of people are currently sleep deprived majorly due to different working hours across different time zones, odd lifestyles and obligations which may be personal. This fact was published on World Sleep Day which falls on March 18th. Curofy which is the largest community of Indian verified doctors have said the above mentioned fact in a poll as an effort to raise awareness related to sleep disorders. It is extremely bad to take sleeping pills said Dr Pawan Gupta, co-founder of Curofy.

Sleep disorders are at the base of nervousness, anxiety and tension. Interpersonal relationships, work pressure and household related issues rigger sleep disorders. Hence people start taking medication for these conditions, but at the same time they forget that sleep disorders are the foundation of these and other such problems.

A lot of people doing night shifts ask the doctors for sleeping tablets as well as those people who spend a lot of time on social media also are sleep deprived. The combined efforts of health professionals and masses in general are responsible to raise awareness about such sleep disorders.

For adopting a healthy lifestyle the people should make an effort for getting 6-8 hours of sleep per day. Any amount of sleep lesser than that is bound to cause neuro problems in the long range of time.
