Sleep news that Silentnight reported on in March 2015
With the summer exam season getting closer, a new poll out today suggests that many teenagers are already experiencing sleepless nights, with young people getting just five to six hours of sleep after admitting to being kept awake by stress.
A new study out today suggests that sleeping well is the key to beating a variety of conditions. Those who go to bed at a decent hour and get up early are less likely to be struck by Alzheimer's, heart problems, obesity, diabetes and depression.
A recent survey has found that those who need a lie-in at weekends to make up for lack of sleep in the week, are at more risk of obesity and developing type 2 diabetes.
New research from from the Institute of Medical Psychology at Ludwig-Maximilian-University in Munich has discovered that employers should allow staff to have a lie in if it suits their body clock. They found reorganising the day to let people work according to their individual 'chronotype', will make them happier and healthier.
