Join us to learn how to improve your sleep
Sleep is critical to support our mental and physical well-being, but over 30% of us aren’t getting enough of it, according to data from Optimum Sleep. There are many reasons for this; we are a busy bunch, living fast paced lives, with brains that sometimes have a hard time turning off at night, but we need to understand that getting less than 7 hours of sleep, waking many times in the night or taking more than an hour to fall asleep are signs that something isn’t quite right.
Lack of sleep can be normalised in many ways, but we need to change this to re-prioritise this bedrock of our health, because, after all, if you haven’t slept, how likely are you to find the energy to cook a healthy meal, to get your steps in or to exercise? Probably not likely at all if we’re being honest with ourselves.
Sleep problems, such as trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or waking too early and not being able to get back to sleep can affect our mental health, make us more prone to accidents and even increase our risk of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension and obesity.
The good news for the nearly 60% of us who suffer from some kind of sleep problem, according to the Sleep Health Foundation, is that there are things you can to do either improve the quantity or quality of your sleep.
