Sleep Disorders Are No Laughing Matter...But You Can Laugh At This.

March 7 thru the 13th is Sleep Awareness Week. Good sleep is important for physical health. As for emotional health, studies suggest that mental health difficulties are often accompanied by sleep disturbances.

Don't let sleeping too little or sleeping too much interfere with your well-being. Contact your healthcare professional.

Though sleep disorders are no laughing matter, the video below is.

What a great video!
