Everyday life can be very stressful. From bills and work to relationships and illnesses, stress plays a part in all of our lives, however we try to avoid it. One of the most important factors in combating the symptoms of stress is sleep, but sleep is usually the first thing to go if stress is getting the better of us. So, how does sleep help to reduce stress, and how can we make sure we get enough sleep to combat it?
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.
Ever find yourself shuffling around the bed trying to find a cool patch or constantly flipping your pillow in search of the cold side? Well, it turns out there is a scientific reason for this. Research indicates that keeping cool as you snooze not only makes you feel more comfortable but also improves health and well-being.
