If we told you there was a simple trick which can help you look better, feel better, and get a whole lot more out of your day, this would doubtless catch your attention, and you might even think it was too good to be true. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, but getting a better night’s sleep can do all this and more. In this post, we give you a run down of why poor sleep is becoming such a problem in Britain. As well as this, we give you a simple to trick to improve your chances of getting a good night’s sleep: the Power Nap Spray from This Works.
The Problem with Sleeping
Sleep is a complex topic, and while traditionally, a consistent 8 hours of sleep per night was considered optimal as a rule of thumb, more recently, the guidelines have shifted to reflect that sleep needs differ substantially from person to person. While official recommendations in the UK now suggest that 7-9 hours per night is the ideal amount of time we need to sleep to feel refreshed, a worrying amount of Brits sleep less. It’s been reported that as many as 34% of people in the UK sleep between 5 and 6 hours per night, with numbers appearing to be on the rise.
The potential consequences of this can be dire for individuals. Lack of adequate sleep can be a contributing factor in a number of health issues, with the risk of heart disease and, diabetes, and high blood pressure thought to higher amongst those who sleep less than the advised amount. As well as this, mental health, cognitive function, physical performance, and work performance can be adversely affected by sleep deprivation. For these reasons amongst many others, getting a better night’s sleep is something we should be aiming to prioritise more.
