If You Avoid Sleep This Holiday Season, Avoid Driving

We have a number of stories and articles here on SleepBetter.org about getting enough sleep during this holiday season.

With a lot of people doing their travel by car this year (whether it’s out of town or to a party across town), it’s a great time to remind everyone of the risk of drowsy driving. The PSA below from the National Sleep Foundation hammers the point home excellently.
