Sleep

    Sleep
    Sleep is an important part of our everyday life and essential for a long and healthy life. We spend about a third of our time doing it, and having the right quality, duration and at the right time is as essential for our wellbeing as food and water. The NHS estimates that “one in 3 of us suffers from poor sleep, with stress, computers and taking work home often blamed.” Whilst many of us would recognise the hallmarks of a bad night’s sleep as causing tiredness and an increase in irritability, or rather as my wife says, grumpiness; the impact of poor sleep on an ongoing basis could be much worse. It could lead to several medical conditions, including obesity, heart disease and diabetes and possible even shorten your life expectancy.TheBoldAge editors have pulled together a number of curated articles and resources from earlier weekly editions, that may help you enjoy regular and better sleep.
