Sleep is one of the most important parts of your daily routine, and yet a large percentage of us are missing out on an average of 2 hours worth of much needed shut eye. Everyone is different, so although the recommended number is 8 hours, some people need a little more, others need a little less.
Did you know that pushing bedtime back a bit later could be having more of an effect on your health than you realise?
Lack of sleep has been linked to a suppressed immune system, decreased concentration levels, decreased memory ability and a more irritable mood compared with those that get a full, undisturbed nights’ sleep.
Did you also know that many of us have got into bad habits that decrease our quality of sleep?
