BEDTIME BLISS OR WAKING NIGHTMARE?

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.

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.

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).
