The big issue: Why it’s time to Sleep On It
Forget multitasking and driving yourself to your limit, experts are increasingly realising that a good night’s sleep is the key to feeling content, energised and at the top of your game.
But we’re just not getting enough. Two-thirds of us struggle to get a decent night’s kip, with over half of women surveyed by The Sleep Council blaming stress or worry.
‘Sleep accounts for one third of our lives,’ says Dr Guy Meadows, clinical director at London’s The Sleep School and creator of The Sleep School app. ‘But we’re struggling to make it a priority.
‘It’s fighting for our attention with longer working hours, stress and busier lives. Whenever we lack energy we think we need to eat or exercise when, in truth, the easiest thing we can do is get more, and better quality, sleep.’ Sounds more appealing that that 6:30am spin class, right?
