How to sleep like a baby when selling your home

We discover why people in North Wales are having sleep problems and what they can do to help themselves get a better night’s rest

According to a BBC report, people across the UK are struggling to get a good night’s sleep since the Covid-19 outbreak began.

Researchers from King’s College London interviewed more than 2,254 UK residents aged between 16-75, and the findings were fascinating – more newsworthy than snoozeworthy.

The survey suggests more than half of the population have had problems sleeping since the outbreak.
Concerns keeping people up included money worries, health fears and general anxiety about the future.

And disturbed sleep is a vicious circle as the researchers explained. Dr Ivana Rosenzweig said: “Stress can cause sleepless nights. And feeling tired and irritable can cause more stress, so it’s a damaging cycle.”

Tips for a Good Night’s Sleep
If you’re struggling to reach the land of nod, try these four tips from sleep expert Dr Simon Kyle.
1) Avoid caffeine – Consuming tea, coffee, soft drinks or even chocolate late in the day can keep you up at night.
2) Knock napping on the head – Resist the urge to have a lockdown siesta – you’ll regret it later that evening.
3) It’s a blackout – Simply lying down undisturbed in a dark bedroom can help ease you into a deeper, more refreshing sleep.
4) The great outdoors – exercising, especially outdoors, has many benefits, including helping your mind and body relax. But don’t overdo it in the evening. This can have the opposite effect by over-stimulating your brain.
