Sleep is important. On average, each of us spends 26 years sleeping in our lifetime, which equates to 9,490 days or 227,760 hours. Getting to sleep also takes some time. We spend on average 7 years trying to get to nod off!
Because sleep is so important to us, Zoom Health publishes a weekly summary of the best news stories about sleep from around the web. If you want to find out what is happening in the world of sleep, you have come to the right place.
Here at Zoom Health we are trying to do our little bit too, which is why you will find that we offer the widest range of earplugs for sleeping on the planet!
