My fellow Haitians in the Diaspora, I know you don't have time but did you know? A good sleep can make you look so much younger...

The first time I came back to Haiti after 17 years living in the United States I thought my family in Haiti slept way too much but later I realize it was I who was not getting enough sleep...

Yes, it was a crazy experience for me...

I spent all my life in the USA sleeping late at night and waking up early in the morning than suddenly, I found myself in Haiti and... Everyone in the house was in bed by 8:00pm... WHAT???

I had no choice but to go to sleep...

I woke up three of four times that night wondering when it's gonna be morning...

The average Haitian get about 8 to 10 hours of sleep every night, that's if they live in Haiti. In the Diaspora, it's a different story...

To my friends in the diaspora, you need to find some time to sleep, it's really good for you... When you don't sleep enough, it affect the way you feel.

According to, adequate sleep is a key part of a healthy lifestyle, and can benefit your heart, weight, mind, and more.
