Wake up on Friday to celebrate the World Sleep Day. Yup! We are not playing with your sleepy head, there is such a day and it’s today. World Sleep Day is an annual event that’s been backed by the World Association of Sleep Medicine (WASM) since 2008. Actually!

It’s tough being a Presidential Guard, especially when you have to wake up the President from deep sleep. A guard tries to wake up former Indonesian President Abdurrahman Wahid. We wondered if his back hurt after that nap.
Jaago Jiang Pyaare
Former Chinese President Jiang Zemin (R) takes a nap beside a pretty focused looking President Hu Jintao. Sitting up has gotta be the toughest ‘sleep posture’. Good balancing act.
