Sleeping Is Good For Us But Why And How Do We Do It?

Sleeping is good for us but why and how do we do it?

Experts say that as adults we should get 8 to 10 hours sleep a night, but how many of us actually do? This week we saw Michael Molsey’s program “Trust Me I’m a Doctor”  which documented that there are significant health benefits in just 1 extra hour’s sleep a night

According to the Sleep Council the average Briton gets only 6 1/2 hours sleep a night. During a study they found that when the volunteer’s got 6 1/2 hours sleep their blood showed higher activity in genes relating to diabetes, cancer, inflammation, immune response and stress results.  Yet when the volunteers got 7 1/2 hours the results showed a reduction in activity in the same genes.

Sleep is not just important for our health as we get older though, our memory function and mental agility is restricted thought lack of sleep.  When we go into REM sleep our short term memory is transferred to long term and if we do not get sufficient REM sleep then those memories can be lost forever. This can effect performance in our day to day lives whatever we do.

If you struggle to get enough sleep at night there are steps you can take to try to improve the length and quality of your sleep:

  • Go to bed at the same time very night
  • Develop relaxing routine in the hour leading up to bed time
  • Make sure your bedroom is as dark as possible
  • Keep the bedroom for sleep and sex only
  • Don’t eat large meals late in the evening
  • Avoid caffine from about 4pm onwards
  • Don’t drink alcohol in the hours leading up to bed
  • Don’t smoke
  • Get at least 30 minutes exercise  day
  • In the hour leading up to bed avoid television, computers and mobiles phones etc. 
  • Get as much light as you can during the day
  • Don’t share your bed with your children or pets
