When it comes to feeling great, nothing compares to a good night’s sleep. 25% of the population have a form of sleep disorder making them excessively tired during the daytime. Try our top tips for the best night’s sleep.
Not everyone agrees on how much sleep we need. Napoleon, Florence Nightingale and Margaret Thatcher got by on four hours a night and Thomas Edison claimed sleep was a waste of time. There is no set amount of time we need to sleep; requirement varies from person to person but most of us need about 8 hours to keep us happy and healthy. The variation in requirement is greater still in the animal kingdom. Did you know a python needs a whopping 18 hours a day while a giraffe can get by on only 2 hours? We spend a third of our lives asleep and our cognitive function, physical health and mental wellbeing depend on us getting enough rest, so it’s a subject worth taking seriously. At the hotel it’s a bit of a science, so if you’re having trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep, follow these five suggestions.
