Dossier Sweet Dreams

Whether you’re a night owl or an early bird, a good night’s rest is a necessity and, when our sleep is disturbed, disrupted or doesn’t happen, it can cause havoc during our waking hours. So, what can you do when the sandman won’t visit? Or, perhaps you sleep soundly yet still feel exhausted the following day?

This month, in partnership with Pukka Herbs, who also make deliciously relaxing teas, we are on a mission to find real and practical solutions to your sleep problems. With a fascinating new understanding of how sleep works for us, and top tips on natural sleep aids from a ‘pukka’ herbalist, to a game-changing sleep plan and a test to reveal how your mindset affects your slumber, get ready for your best night’s sleep ever…

“Sleep is the best meditation”

The Dalai Lama



Are your nocturnal hours a wide-eyed trial? We all experience sleep problems now and then, but a poor night’s rest can do great damage to our waking hours. So, what’s the key to getting a restorative, rejuvenating night’s sleep? Anita Chaudhuri finds the answers...

To sleep, perchance to dream. Ay, there’s the rub, mused Hamlet. Whenever I hear that phrase, I like to imagine that Shakespeare was a fellow insomniac; tossing, turning, throwing off his toohot Elizabethan duvet and peering at the historical equivalent of the little red digital numbers that spookily always read 3.24am when I wake up.

The only comfort is, it seems I am not alone. According to the Great British Sleep Survey, 51.3 per cent of us have trouble sleeping, and women are three times more likely than men to battle with insomnia. And we are all sleeping up to two hours less than we did in the 1960s, according to experts from Oxford and Harvard Universities.*

The consequences of sleep deprivation on our physical health and mental wellbeing are significant, and there is a well-documented link between longterm poor sleep and diabetes, obesity, heart disease, depression and infertility, to name a few. So, given the risks, why are we not making sleep more of a priority? I put this question to Nick Littlehales, ‘sleep coach’ and author of the forthcoming book Sleep (Penguin Life, £9.98, out 27 October). Among other high-profile clients, Littlehales has worked with top footballers from Manchester United and Chelsea.
