National Sleep Awareness Week

As a small business owner, sometimes getting a good night of sleep is difficult. I know. Some nights, I start doing research, or tweaking a web site, or writing blog posts, and I lose track of time.

I've even considered getting an alarm clock to put next to my desk - not to tell me when to awaken, but instead to tell me when to go to sleep.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has deemed this week National Sleep Awareness Week, and have issued a guide to healthy sleep (pdf) that's worth a look. It has lots of pictures and charts, and is very readable.

The document covers issues such as:

How much sleep is enough
What happens to your body when you sleep
Risks of working on a night shift
Dealing with jet lag
Top ten sleep myths
The benefits of naps, and when to not nap
Sleep disruptions
Tips for quality sleep
Sleep apnea
Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS)
Parasomnias (Abnormal Arousals)
Other resources about sleep

I guess if you're going to spend a third of your time doing something, it doesn't hurt to know a little about it.
