We all enjoy sleep, some more than others. And we all know that sleep is an important part of staying healthy. There are numerous studies depicting how much sleep we should get, and many of the studies claiming that we as a nation don’t get enough.
Scientists from leading universities have told the BBC that reducing the amount you sleep can lead to “serious health problems”. One of the major culprits for not sleeping as much is the technology heavy world we live in. Exposure to the blue light that emits itself from our devices has a negative effect on our ability to fall asleep.
Understanding more about sleep can help us manage our sleep patterns better, which will ultimately create a healthier nation.
