National Sleep Awareness Week

Did you know that National Sleep Awareness Week takes place March 1-8, 2009? Getting an adequate amount of quality sleep is essential to a healthy lifestyle.

To celebrate and promote better sleep for a better life, dōTERRA is sponsoring the 1st annual "Pajama-Rama" event in conjunction with Brigham Young University Recreation Management students.

This fun, FREE event for the entire family will take place:
Date: March 5, 2009
Time: 6-8 p.m.
Location: Kids On The Move building located at 475 West 260 North in Orem, Utah,

Activities and educational presentations include:
-a silent auction (with all proceeds to benefit Kids On The Move)
-bedtime games
-crafts
-snacks
-a bedtime story presentation given by Wendy Gourley of the Utah Storytelling Guild
-pajama parade/contest, and
-a presentation on the sleep inducing benefits of lavender essential oil by Dr. Hill, dōTERRA's Chief Medical Advisor.

Better sleep means a better lifestyle. A recent article in Medical News Today featured research on how poor sleep is linked to more colds, and another article in Top News Health reported that research shows that a lack of sleep is linked to more injuries in kids.

dōTERRA is pleased to provide this event that will educate parents and individuals on the importance of quality sleep. Sweet dreams!
