It is widely known that good sleep is absolutely vital to our general wellbeing and mental health. So, why is it so important? Sleep replenishes our energy stores, regenerates tissues, strengthens connections between brain cells, and removes waste produced in the body.
However, sleep deprivation is becoming a modern epidemic; a 2018 survey highlighted that only 6% of adults in the UK manage to achieve the recommended 8 hours sleep a night.[i] Not being able to fall asleep, waking up throughout the night, or not feeling refreshed on waking can lead to several problems that we sometimes don't associate with sleep at all. It can leave us anxious, less resilient to stress, and prone to depression. It can severely affect our performance, energy, memory, and can increase the risk of heart failure, stroke, and coronary artery disease.[ii]
