National Sleep Foundation Announces Sleep Awareness Week® 2022 Dates


Washington, D.C. (February 18, 2022): National Sleep Foundation has announced its annual Sleep Awareness Week® 2022 will take place from March 13-19, with a call to action for everyone to recognize the importance of sleep as a crucial measure of their overall health.

Established in 1998 by the National Sleep Foundation, Sleep Awareness Week is recognized annually as the premier awareness and education campaign for sleep, when the National Sleep Foundation engages the public to prioritize sleep as a crucial measure of their overall health and well-being.  Sleep Awareness Week promotes best practices for sleep health that include expert guidance and practical tips to help people get the sleep they need. Campaign materials and activities are found at the Sleep Awareness Week 2022 site. 

Sleep Awareness Week begins on March 13 at the start of Daylight Saving Time, when most Americans change their clocks and lose an hour of sleep. During the week, NSF also releases results of the hallmark Sleep in America® Poll, now in its 24th year of surveying Americans on a range of sleep-related topics.

“National Sleep Foundation’s Sleep Awareness Week is a cornerstone program that’s part of our work to help the public be their Best Slept Self™,” says National Sleep Foundation CEO John Lopos. “Healthy sleep can be achieved through actions we take during the day and at night to ensure we get enough quality sleep to be at our best.”

Sleep Awareness Week 2022 is supported by unrestricted funds from Jazz Pharmaceuticals, Eisai, Inc., Huckleberry, Avadel Pharmaceuticals, PureCare, Apnimed, and Harmony Biosciences. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Safety Council are helping to promote NSF’s healthy sleep messages. NSF independently produces Sleep Awareness Week, the Sleep in America Poll, and all related official educational content. Sleep health resources for the public are available at
