Are You Tired of Being Tired? S.F. Sleep Movement Might Help You Snooze

Categories: Health, Only in SF

Don't you wish you could?
Are you that person who hops BART after a long day of work, headed for downtown Oakland, but winds up in Fremont because your so damn tired that you fell asleep on the train?

If just reading that last paragraph makes you cranky and irritable, then you could probably use an extra few hours of sleep. Sadly, you can't do anything about that now, except read on.

Other folks who are cranky and irritable about their ongoing sleep deprivation have started a pajama-wearing movement that is meant to help you add a few extra ZZZZZs to your night.

Later today, the tired troup will gather at Fourth and Howard streets to explain how they plan to put an end to the incessant yawning that's running rampant in San Francisco.

According to the National Center on Sleep Disorder Research at the National Institutes of
Health, insomnia affects two out of every five Americans. That'd be 326,000 San Franciscans and nearly 3 million in the Bay Area who are sleepless through the night.

How do you know if your employees are suffering from sleeping disorders? Watch for frequent yawning, fatigue and most importantly, a lack of attention span throughout the workday. Maybe it's time to consider instituting nap time at the office. Just a thought.

In any event, if you're not too exhausted, head down to SOMA with your pillow and slumber spa masks at 11 a.m. and learn how you can sleep as peacefully as this guy.
