National Sleep Day September, 5

National Sleep Day would take place on September 5th. It would be on this day, because it's the day after Labor Day and people work hard and need a brake after Labor Day. During this day you would get to do nothing all day. You would only get up to eat or use the bathroom. You would get your PJ's on and lay in your bed all day. If there was school on that day it would be canceled. Everyone gets work off and nobody goes out. Everyone stays home and sleeps.

Sleep improves your memory; during sleep you can strengthen memories or "practice," skills learned while you were awake.
"A good nights sleeps can really help a moody person decrease their anxiety." You get emotionally stable when you sleep.

A lack of sleep can result in ADHD-like symptoms in kids, a 2009 study in the journal Pediatrics found that children ages seven to eight who got less than eight hours of sleep a night were more likely to be hyperactive, inattentive, and impulsive.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported in 2009 that being tired accounted for the highest number of fatal single-car run-off-the-road crashes due to the driver's performance-even more than alcohol!
