Brits can’t catch a wink of sleep

Sleep helps reduce stress, can improve your memory and help you maintain your weight, yet the average Brit only gets 5 hours and 36 minutes of uninterrupted sleep a night – despite the fact that the NHS advises we get around 8-hours of quality rest. As the nation struggles to settle down for a night’s sleep, research reveals that temperature (39%) anxiety (36%) and light (26%) are the primary reasons for being sleep deprived.

The research commissioned by sleep wellness brand eve sleep, is encouraging the nation to lobby the government to make sleep a human right. People are also being warned of the effects on sleep of the clocks going back this weekend (Sunday 27 October) and how to counteract the negative impact this has on sleep quality.

Aston spoke to Dave Gibson, sleep expert & health care professional to discuss the research and also about the eve sleep campaign.
