Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve noticed more and more people talking about the changes in their daily routine. I must admit that the freedom to stay in our pyjamas and work from the bed or sofa does seem attractive, but for those that are now struggling to sleep at night, there’s been a need to think again.
The current pandemic has affected many of our daily routines, and one of its biggest impacts reported is the detrimental effect on sleep.
Many people are suffering from sleep issues for the first time in their lives. They know that concerns over the impact of the Covid 19 virus are to blame but haven’t yet found their own strategy to resume a good night’s sleep. Instead, they report difficulties in falling to sleep easily, waking for long periods, feeling groggy and achieving less the next day and feeling irritable. To name but a few!
The NHS notes that in the long term, poor sleep puts you at risk of serious medical conditions, including obesity, heart disease and diabetes; and ultimately, can shorten life expectancy.
The good news is that you can quickly adjust your routine to include effective strategies that will support you and your family to settle easily and achieve a better night’s sleep.
