Sleep Awareness Week on GB News
Happy World Sleep Day! It was great to have the chance to talk to Eamonn and Isabel (both keen sleep evangelists) on GB News earlier this week. We were discussing a story that >50% of Scots are getting fewer than the recommended 7 hours of sleep, and 40% are stressed most or all of the time.
Sleep and mental health have a bidirectional relationship. After a bad night's sleep, you're more vulnerable to feeling stressed and anxious. On the plus side, when you can protect the time and space for a good night's sleep, you can feel the benefits for your wellbeing the very next day.
