National Pain Awareness Month

National Invisible Illness Awareness Week may be over, but National Pain Awareness Month is still not!  Pain is not fun to deal with and the number of people who suffer from issues like back pain in America today is alarming.  Some 80% of Americans are affected by back pain at some point in their life and 50% of older Americans suffer from chronic pain.  Restless sleep is a big factor in these numbers.  100 million Americans suffer from sleep deprivation, so it should be no wonder to us that our bodies are getting cranky.

Pete Bils, the Vice President of Sleep Innovation, will be hosting a Twitter Party!  Sleep Innovation does clinical research for Select Comfort.  I had discussed Select Comfort in a prior blog a while back, along with a national contest they had been running.  This should be fun to virtually attend and I hope you can all join me.  Details about this event appear below.

Stay fabulous!
Love and friendship,

Kimberley
