Sleep, you just can’t live without it
Getting enough ZZZs is one of the most basic things in the world, yet it can make such a big difference to our lives. After a restful night’s sleep I feel ready to face the world and on my A game! And when I don’t? Let’s just say that strong coffee and a cold shower is my tactic for reviving myself. But what I most notice when I don’t sleep well is my ability to look anywhere near half decent goes out the window. With sleep, my skin looks brighter, with less dark circles and I eat better throughout the day and don’t feel exhausted when I get home from work.
It is thought that more than a third of adults aren’t getting the right amount of sleep, according to the Aviva survey of 1,000 aged 18 and over. The survey also found 25% of Britons priorities getting a better night’s sleep over reducing sugar intake and eating more healthily. But we’re still not getting it right.
In today’s busy world we’re all guilty of always being on. With my phone in arms reach I can’t resist having a quick look through everyone’s Instagram stories. But before I realise, half an hour has past me by and it’s nearly close to midnight. My personal Trainer, Graham Whitehead Health has always said to get the best sleep you should be asleep by 10.30pm. This is because between 10.30pm and 2pm your body repairs itself and with the recent news of the lack of sleep could shorten your life we all need to put sleep back on our agendas, but what are the tactics to getting a good bit of shut-eye?
My friends at Neom Organics are hosting a #NeomBigSleep. Running over the month of September, the #NeomBigSleep is open to anyone who wants to get more serious about their slumber. They are offering inspirational ideas and practical advice on how to improve your sleep.
