When it comes to our health, getting enough sleep is as important as eating properly and exercising. But with more than a third of the UK population experiencing trouble with getting to sleep it can sometimes be a battle to get the balance right.
Fatigue from restless nights, working shift patterns and jetlag can lead to an inability to keep up a regular workout routine. This lack of exercise in turn impacts on the ability to sleep properly and a vicious cycle occurs. This is because physical activity is proven to have a positive impact on sleep, promoting sleep efficiency and reducing the time it takes to get to sleep.
So, what happens when we work out in the evening?
Good news for those of you who have struggled to get to sleep – then answer can often be as simple as breathing! So, next time you find yourself kicking the bedsheets in frustration, relax and unwind by practising a few of these simple breathing exercises. You never know, you might just find yourself drifting off into a deep and restful slumber.
We’ve all been there at some point or another – tossing and turning, trying to find a comfortable position in which to drift off. Whether you’re a chronic night owl or you’re just having a short period of restless nights, there are ways of catching some zz’s without relying on medication.
Summer is well and truly here, which means lazy sunny days and warm summer evenings. While this is great for the waking hours, the UK isn’t that well equipped to deal with heat at night time due to our distinct lack of air conditioning. But if you want to make sure that you get a good night’s rest, then one of the most important factors is the temperature of your environment.
Whether you’re a lifelong night owl, a new parent or you go through bouts of sleeplessness, surviving on less than 6 hours a night can put you into a sleep debt. Sleep debt? What’s that all about then?
