The Huffington Post Takes The Sleep Revolution To 35,000 Feet

You are now free to roam about the mattress.

Today, April 19, The Huffington Post is taking the Sleep Revolution to the skies.

Study over study -- as well as our personal energy levels! -- suggests that our nation is NOT getting enough sleep to lead healthy lives, let alone solve the world's major problems. Sleep deprivation endangers our happiness, our work performance and our wellbeing as a whole.

That's why today, Arianna Huffington and JetBlue are taking the Sleep Revolution to 35,000 feet, with a day of all things sleep + travel.

Huffington will kick things off with a special unveiling and panel discussion in the JetBlue terminal at JFK, followed by a flight full of giveaways, special happenings and Q&A's with experts.

Stay tuned here on our HuffPost live blog for updates, tweets, tips and videos as we take the #SleepRevolution to the clouds.
