Sleep Day

Sleep Day. Yes, that’s a thing now.

“Approximately half of us never, or rarely, wake feeling refreshed in the morning.  We also have difficulty getting back to sleep when we wake in the middle of the night.  A third of us have difficulty falling asleep at night.”  This is according to Dr Karyn O’Keeffe, from Massey’s Sleep/Wake Research Centre.

Dr O’Keeffe recommends we make sleep a priority. Missing out on sleep can lead to being less productive, less creative and less flexible in our thinking. It can therefore cause slower reaction times, poorer decision-making, trouble getting on with others, and poorer concentration and motivation.

Poor sleep may also lead to health problems like high blood pressure, increased weight, stroke, heart disease and diabetes in the long term.

You’ll find Dr O’Keefe’s recommendations on how to get a good night’s sleep here.
