The insurance company Aviva says that two thirds of UK adults suffer from disrupted sleep and that a quarter only manage around five hours per night. As mentioned, for those who struggle to fall asleep, there are some tips that can be employed to assist. One that may sound drastic, but which can have a profound impact, is changing mattresses. Worn out or old mattresses can not only make falling asleep difficult, but can also cause back and joint pains.
Fresh mattresses with modern technology can help to support the body and relieve pressure in all the right areas.
Another tip is symptomatic of the modern era of smartphones and electronic devices.
Devices that come with blue light screens, that’s most smartphones, make it harder for the brain to switch off.
Most recommend that not looking at screens in the build up to bed make it easier for the brain to switch off.
Exercise is not only a great way to get fitter, it can also improve sleep quality.
Not only does exercise result in the body feeling tired, but in the long run it can improve the quality of sleep.
Routines are calming at the best of times; they provide order to a person’s day and provide micro-bursts of certainty.
Settling into a sleep routine primes the mind and therefore the body too that there is a plan; this relaxes the mind further, which is all part of the winding down process.
If the sleep problems persist the psychological effects become more serious.
Brain fog and poor mental health can set in too.
If you drive while tired after a lack of sleep this can increase the likelihood of a crash due to poor concentration.
Lack of sleep can also increase the risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, obesity and high blood pressure.
