For example, did you know that on average, women have worse sleep patterns than men? Also, did you know that one in 3 workers in countries such as Britain find it difficult to sleep, or that 43% of sleeping pill users have been on those pills for more than 10 years?

  • Body Discomfort
  • Noise

  • Room Temperature
  • Light Levels

  • Make sure that your bed is comfortable
  • Do more exercise
  • Cut down on stimulants such as coffee
