A good night’s sleep can do wonders for physical and metal health, but fresh research has revealed three-quarters of people in the UK aren’t getting enough to maintain a healthy life balance.
Bed SoS have conducted an extensive study to analyse sleeping habits of the UK population, finding a large number do not get the necessary number of hours of shuteye to avoid possible catastrophic mental and physical health problems.
The effects of lack of sleep, such as feeling annoyed, grumpy and not performing at your best, have been well documented, but there are also major health concerns when deprived of sufficient levels of shuteye.
Across the UK, the fresh research illustrates that 53% of adults aren’t getting enough time relaxing in bed, with 20% feeling tired or exhausted through the day as a result of missing precious sleep.
The study revealed that an astonishing 74% of people manage less than the recommended eight hours of sleep per night.
Worryingly, one in ten (10%) of the population are only able to grab four or fewer hours of a sleep a night. A trend the NHS has warned will make people more susceptible to conditions like diabetes, weight gain, a weaker immune system and an increased risk of heart disease.
