Report  Web desk : ISLAMABAD: World Sleep Day is an annual event, intended to be a celebration of sleep and a call to action on important issues related to sleep, including medicine, education, social aspects and driving. Today, the globe will unite for World Sleep Day to host activities incorporating the slogan, Sleep Soundly, Nurture Life. Using collaborative efforts energized by sleep professionals all over the world, the focus of World Sleep Day is to bring cognizance to the many burdens of sleep problems. World Sleep Day publicly displays efforts being taken toward prevention and management of sleep disorders. This focus is purposefully broad in meaning, surrounding the message that quality of life with a sleep disorder can be improved, but recognition of sleep importance for overall health and well-being must come first. Though most sleep disorders are preventable or treatable, less than one-third of sufferers seek professional help. 02
