Good sleep is vital for our health and happiness. We automatically look and feel at our best, are more productive in our everyday tasks and generally happier people to be around after a good nights sleep.
When our sleep is disturbed on the other hand even the most basic daily activities can seem like a burden, we are grumpy and our appearance also suffers. Some sleep experts believe that lack of sleep can be blamed for up to 40,000 road accidents each year.
But why do so many of us regularly wake up so tired and sluggish in the mornings, despite getting a good quantity of sleep. Experts have different opinions on the amount of sleep we need but rather it is the quality of sleep that seems to be more important.
Sleep is divided in to two basic levels, light superficial sleep and deep REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. It is during this deep sleep that the body’s repair and restoration takes place. The muscles of the body are totally relaxed, the body replenishes itself and we wake up in the morning refreshed and energised.
