Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 September 2019).
We are organizing a Special Issue on Sleep and Wellbeing in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. The venue is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
Sleep is medicine, as exercise is medicine. Sleep, a behavioural performance enhancer, surpasses the ergogenic effects of caffeine and other enhancing agents. However, sleep can be delicate and easily disrupted by the same factors that promote it, including psychological, physical, medical, and lifestyle (diets, exercise, environment, relationships, stressors, and sleep hygiene) factors. Sleep deprivation can have negative implications for mental, metabolic, physical, and immune functions.
This Special Issue is open to any subject area related to sleep health and wellbeing. The listed keywords suggest just a few of the many possibilities.
