A new report was unveiled today that found that U.S. mothers do not get enough sleep!
Um… did they really need a study to figure this out? Have the sponsors of this study not met any mothers before?
Well, upon further investigation, it appears that the study was sponsored by a pharmaceutical company that wants to encourage sleepless mothers to talk to doctors about prescription sleep aids. And guess what? That paraceutical company happens to sell prescription sleep aids!
They have a website called Sleepless Moms with tips on how to get more/better sleep, but none of the tips really address the societal reasons mothers are pulled in so many directions that they don’t have time to sleep.
What strategies do you use to balance work and life and still have enough time to get a good night’s sleep? Leave a comment and share your experiences.
