Sleep news that Silentnight reported on in February 2015
One tip from Silentnight sleep expert, Dr Nerina Ramlakhan, for getting a good night's sleep is to minimise tech in the bedroom, so we weren't surprised when new research out today found that sleep tracking apps and devices may be fuelling insomnia in some people. Experts at the Sleep Health Foundation found that those who don't understand that normal sleep involves lots of brief awakenings may be especially at risk.
A study out today, covered in The Times and the Independent amongst other national newspapers, indicates that people who sleep more than 8 hours a night can have a higher risk of suffering from a stroke. However experts are currently unsure whether oversleeping is a cause or a symptom.
Here at Silentnight we are big advocates of resting at intervals throughout the day, so we were delighted to see the details of a recent clinical trial that highlighted the importance of meditation and sleep, published in The New York Times this week.
