Are you that person who hops BART after a long day of work, headed for downtown Oakland, but winds up in Fremont because your so damn tired that you fell asleep on the train?

If just reading that last paragraph makes you cranky and irritable, then you could probably use an extra few hours of sleep. Sadly, you can't do anything about that now, except read on.

Other folks who are cranky and irritable about their ongoing sleep deprivation have started a pajama-wearing movement that is meant to help you add a few extra ZZZZZs to your night.

Later today, the tired troup will gather at Fourth and Howard streets to explain how they plan to put an end to the incessant yawning that's running rampant in San Francisco.

According to the National Center on Sleep Disorder Research at the National Institutes of

Health, insomnia affects two out of every five Americans. That'd be 326,000 San Franciscans and nearly 3 million in the Bay Area who are sleepless through the night.

How do you know if your employees are suffering from sleeping disorders? Watch for frequent yawning, fatigue and most importantly, a lack of attention span throughout the workday. Maybe it's time to consider instituting nap time at the office. Just a thought.

In any event, if you're not too exhausted, head down to SOMA with your pillow and slumber spa masks at 11 a.m. and learn how you can sleep as peacefully as this guy.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
