The public is missing out on one night’s worth of sleep each week, according to the Royal Society for Public Health.
We all have trouble sleeping occasionally – perhaps as a result of stress, something traumatic happening in our lives or as a side effect of another health condition or medication. Whether it’s temporary or something you’ve been living with for a while, it’s important to identify what might be causing your sleep disturbance so that you can take steps to help alleviate it. People are all different so a ‘one size fits all’ solution isn’t helpful. Our experts have contributed to this hub so that you can find what works for you.
