Getting a good night’s sleep during the spring & summer months
The arrival of spring – and the prospect of summer on the horizon – is normally something to be happy about. Better weather (well, mostly) gives us the chance to get outside, enjoy the great outdoors and finally move away from the winter wardrobe… and also turn that expensive central heating down.
But for many people, the lighter mornings and warmer nights can mean that getting forty winks is harder than ever.
Sleep is a big issue in the UK. According to one study we’re actually the worst sleepers in the world while separate research found that fewer than a third of us are happy about the amount of sleep we get. It’s perhaps no wonder given the wildly different seasons we have here. We go from frosty mornings to flinging back the covers within a matter of days. Countries that experience the extreme cold or warm gear up their homes to cater for their climate – we end up struggling with both ends of the spectrum.
