New Year’s Resolution for 2010: Take the Sleep Challenge

Arianna Huffington of The Huffington Post and Cindi Leive of Glamour have made a New Year’s resolution and invited their readers to join in.

The challenge? Get more sleep.

Research shows that women off all ages are sleep deprived. While women know sleep is important for their health and well-being, it becomes less of a priority because of family, professional pursuits and other commitments.

The kids and late-night work e-mail may trump sleep; however, the resulting
sleep deprivation makes it difficult to respond quickly, multi-task, think creatively and solve problems at home and at work. Sleep deprivation makes you more prone to illness and stress as well.

In addition to sleep deprivation, many women struggle with sleep disorders that make it difficult for them to get a good night’s sleep. Last year, the Sleep Education Blog
reported that insomnia is more common in women than men.
