Top citazioni

  • Write down how long it takes to get to sleep, how many times you wake up during the night and what time you wake up in the morning – plus how you felt the next day. After a few weeks you should see a pattern emerging. Now you can start to find solutions.

  • Men tend to put on weight around their necks and waists, whereas women seem to put on weight around the thighs. So when you lay on your back your fatty tissue adds pressure onto the airway, blocking it off and making you snore.

  • If you miss out on sleep, it’s the lighter stages of sleep – 1 and 2 – that tend to be lost. The body will always do its best to catch up on deep sleep first, then REM sleep.

  • Insomnia is more common in older people and women are twice as likely to suffer than men. People with children are more likely to suffer although less than 3% of chil- dren report any serious problem of insomnia.

  • Darkness triggers your body clock to release sleep-inducing chemicals so in autumn, as it starts to get darker earlier, your body prepares for sleep earlier. The sun rises later, too, so your wake-up hormones are triggered later.

CAREFUL NOW

We know you’re responsible and perfectly capable of using the information in this book wisely. That said, any advice given is not a substitute for medical advice – so consult your doctor or healthcare provider before making any changes to your diet and exercise regime or if you start taking supplements – particularly if you’re on medication, you’re very unfit or you’re pregnant. Yes, we checked the facts, but teams of eager scientists in laboratories around the world are constantly updating and reassessing their research. So the facts might change. We like you and hope you’re soon sleeping soundly every night, but we’re not going to come around and tuck you in – because how well you sleep is ultimately up to you.
