Reclaim Sleep in 2017
What’s the plan for 2017 – to get fit, lose weight and generally be healthier? Or perhaps, you want to get a new job and be more organised? If you want to achieve any of the above, then there’s one New Year resolution you really need to stick to and that’s reclaiming good quality sleep.
Our new sleep guide, The Art of Falling Asleep, is now available to read in full, here. It’s full of useful advice and helpful techniques to help you restore your factory sleep settings and sleep better in 2017.
More on why good sleep will help you stick to your New Year plans, below…
Modern life has impacted our relationship with sleep so much that half of British adults admit to having problems falling asleep*. “A lack of sleep has a detrimental knock-on effect on our whole body,” explains our sleep expert, Dave Gibson.
“The first thing which happens is that we start to become moody and irritable, and start to get a foggy head, with our short-term memory, our ability to plan and to make decisions and rational judgments all affected by lack of sleep.”
“But it’s not just our attention levels and cognitive processes that are affected, lack of sleep is a critical factor in relation to your energy levels. Not adequately resting can lead to a decrease in energy levels especially when our immune system is working hard (like when it’s fighting infection) as it tries to borrow energy from other parts of your energy stores – making us feel tired in the day.”
“Our weight, appetite and fat storage tend to be changed too, and we get cravings for energy dense foods such as fat and carbohydrates – something to think about, especially if weight loss is on the agenda in 2017.”
Considering all of this, you are much more likely to keep your New Year resolutions when your brain function is at its optimum and your energy levels are good. Whether it’s sticking to a new diet, stopping smoking, keeping fit or generally being more organised you will find it much easier when your brain and body is well rested from continuous and good quality sleep.
Here are Dave Gibson’s 5 top tips to help you remaster the art of falling asleep in 2017:
