Adequate sleep and proper nutrition are essential to maintaining proper physical, mental, emotional, social, occupational, and academic health and wellness. In fact, Healthy People 2020 has identified both nutrition and sleep health as primary health indicators. The goal of the nutrition indicator is to promote health and wellness, as well as reduce chronic disease risk, through the consumption of healthful diets. The sleep health indicator includes improving public knowledge of the effects of inadequate sleep on multiple indicators of wellness, including productivity, quality of life and safety.
