Everyone knows that getting enough sleep is important to make sure you are on top of your game and fit for working and thinking when you most need to be alert. There are plenty of articles explaining how poor quality sleep – or not enough sleep – can severely impact our mental and physical well-being, making us anxious or depressed, dangerous drivers or unfocused workers. A good night’s sleep is essential for recharging our body and mind, making us able to face each new day with a sense of excitement and freshness.
New research highlights the dangers that teens having poor sleep patterns can trigger; the distractions of modern life – computers, phones and constant online interaction, further disrupts sleeping habits that are already disturbed by changing hormones. As they move from the child phase to adult life, low quality sleep and simply not enough time to sleep deeply and well seriously affects daily life and can trigger serious concerns for young adults. Drugs, alcohol problems and poor decisions regarding casual relationships can be linked to teens finding it difficult to adapt their own rest needs as they mature.
How you sleep and how well rested you are can have a huge impact on your day to day life and sense of well-being, so it is important to maximise your potential to sleep well in bed and be comfortable overnight. Environment is a key factor in helping your body recognise sleep signals, so take time to create the perfect sanctuary for your rest hours.
Holiday seasons have a profound effect on our body clock and natural rhythms; we unwind into time off work with no school run and a few days away from commitments. We relax into later mornings and staying up to enjoy child-free evenings or socialising with friends. If there are no young children pulling us out of bed at the crack of dawn we naturally adjust to a sleep/wake cycle that suit our needs.
