Sleep affects every moment of our daily lives, from how we think and remember to how our bodies thrive or deteriorate.  It determines how we deal with stress, make choices related to safety, and function as human beings.  While most health education tends to focus on nutrition and activity, sleep is arguably the single most important factor in maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and lack of it causes a significantly reduced quality of life. 

Nebraska Extension offers in-person and online educational programs for all ages, featuring impacts of sleep deprivation and strategies for self-care related to sleep hygiene.
