Early results from the Lake Nona Life Project are already speaking volumes about daily resident life in Lake Nona. While many residents indicate health and wellness to be a personal priority, a large number of residents report that sleep is one of their largest health concerns.
Residents reported problems and concerns with getting enough sleep, trouble falling asleep and a variety of other issues related to quality of nightly rest. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has labeled insufficient sleep as a growing public health problem, so it seems good rest is on the minds of many Americans (possibly when they should be counting sheep instead).
Researchers with the Lake Nona Life Project already are looking to learn more and integrate the issue as a key element of the program. As a multigenerational community health study, the Life Project seeks to understand more about our daily health experiences and give researchers vital insights into common risk factors. As similar studies have led to major health breakthroughs, the Lake Nona Life Project presents Lake Nona with an opportunity to make a genuine impact on future generations.
In reporting this early trend, Lake Nona Life Project representatives indicated they plan to provide sleep-focused resources in an effort to help residents improve their sleep.
Current Lake Nona Life Project enrollment numbers have surpassed 50% of residents with a target goal of 70% participation.
