The Sleeping EnvironmentIn this modern world we contend with many demands and stresses that are impressed upon us by everyday life where we time manage to balance work, rest and play which makes getting enough sleep vital to recharge our bodies in preparation for the next day.
There is much talk on social media about the subject of sleep, which would suggest that many of us have issues in that area. Perhaps your slumber is easily disturbed, precious hours being spent tossing and turning, napping and waking struggling to drop off and switching off mentally, with that feeling of being tired but not sleepy. Ultimately, we wake in the morning feeling un-refreshed and inert becoming heavily reliant on caffeine to get moving and keep going.
According to the World Health Organisation, you are likely to be part of the 'sleep loss epidemic', with two thirds of adults in developed nations not getting the recommended 8 hours of sleep a night. There has been a global rise in sleep disorders such as insomnia and sleep apnea, but also, put simply, those who have the capacity to sleep well just aren't sleeping enough. In Japan, where the epidemic is at its most absurd, the average time spent asleep is just 6 hours and 22 minutes, with phrases for both falling asleep in public (inemuri) and dying from overworking (karōshi). The UK isn't far behind, averaging just 6 hours and 49 mins a night, meaning that since a study in 1942 found under 8% of the population was trying to survive on six or less hours, it's now rocketed to almost one in two of us.
