World Sleep Day

Sleep is often overlooked and not seen as a priority in everyday life. However, sleep is linked to promoting good health and well-being. Regular and undisturbed sleep routine is essential to keeping good mental health and helps with mood. In UK, we average between 5.78-6.83 hours a night, yet the national sleep foundation advises healthy adults need between 7-9 hours a night.

By investing in good quality sleep can improve cognitive function therefore improving concentration and productivity. Physically your body will be more energized which is linked to better mood and a regulation in hormone. Sleep is vital as this is the time your body and mind can repair and recharge.

To get a better night sleep, there are simple lifestyle habits you can incorporate. This include:
- Establishing a good bedtime routine and sleeping at the same time every night
- Keep a comfortable temperature in the bedroom.
- Limit your screen time before bed and keep a low light level when you sleep.
- Abstain from large meals and caffeine a few hours before bedtime
- Winddown your day with gentle exercises

We spend a third of our lives asleep, therefore sleep is essential, and we should look to improve it where possible. Happy world sleep day
