We all know that king, or queen sleeper: the one that drifts off to sleep no matter what.
They fall into bed at any time & effortlessly wake up after having 8-hours of undisturbed sleep, no problems and dream the night away….
Sadly, this just isn’t the case for most of us. According to studies, 1 in 5 adults in the UK are clinically diagnosed with sleep deficiency and a whopping 1 in 3 adults are worried about their sleep pattern or report frequent sleep difficulty.
That’s a lot of tired folks.
The modern age has seen the dawn of the sleeplessness epidemic…
We are so over stimulated; the mind has too much to focus on so we find it increasingly hard to switch off.
This is hard reading.
Especially when you consider how important sleep is to our functionality. Sleep offers time for the physical and mental layers to repair, restore and recalibrate for the day that lies ahead. Without this time, the body can struggle to function leading to difficulties with cognitive functions, weakened immune system & your hormones which can also cause problems with weight grain/loss & your sex drive. That’s a lot of reasons for a good night’s sleep.
Poor sleep is linked to both our physical & mental health; just as a tickly cough can keep you up all night long, a ticking mind can also give you a very restless night’s sleep, am I right?
With both the body & mind of equal importance, it’s important to incorporate both when preparing for a good night sleep!
