Government of Health Goal

About 1 in 3 adults — and even more adolescents — don’t get enough sleep, which can affect their health and well-being. Healthy People 2030 focuses on helping people get enough sleep, treating sleep disorders, and decreasing drowsy driving.

People who don’t get enough sleep are more likely to have health problems like obesity, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, dementia, and cancer. They’re also more likely to have trouble at work or school. In addition, about 100,000 motor vehicle crashes every year in the United States are related to drowsy driving.3 Improving sleep habits and sleep environments can help people stay healthy and safe.

Sleep disorders like sleep apnea also negatively affect people’s health and safety, and many adults who have a sleep disorder don’t get the treatment they need. Raising awareness about sleep disorders can help people recognize symptoms and get the help they need.

Sleep: A Health Imperative

Chronic sleep deficiency, defined as a state of inadequate or mistimed sleep, is a growing and underappreciated determinant of health status. Sleep deprivation contributes to a number of molecular, immune, and neural changes that play a role in disease development, independent of primary sleep disorders. These changes in biological processes in response to chronic sleep deficiency may serve as etiological factors for the development and exacerbation of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases and, ultimately, a shortened lifespan. Sleep deprivation also results in significant impairments in cognitive and motor performance which increase the risk of motor vehicle crashes and work-related injuries and fatal accidents. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the Sleep Research Society have developed this statement to communicate to national health stakeholders the current knowledge which ties sufficient sleep and circadian alignment in adults to health.

In addition, using the appropriate pillow, these simple steps can help ensure you’re getting an ample amount of rest each evening.”
