The article reports that National Bed Month is set to launch with widespread media coverage on March 1, 2005 after The Sleep Council commissioned research into the sleeping habits of several occupations. Among those studied are politicians, solicitors, mothers, social workers and hospital doctors on call. The research also reveals information on how long it takes for people to fall asleep or if they wake during the night--possible indications of a bed that needs replacing. Psychologist David Lewis who conducted the research said that even a momentary wakening can result in up to 10 minutes loss of sleep. This is quite sufficient to build up a serious sleep debt in a short period of time.
