Sleep Month on The Neat Blog

As a nation, we’re just not getting enough sleep. According to The Great British Bedtime Report, “one-third of Britons now sleep for just five-to-six hours per night” and the average person “goes to bed at 11.15pm and gets just six hours and 35 minutes sleep per night”. We’re a nation that is busier, and more stressed out, than ever – but our “sleep when we’re dead” mentality is having a huge impact on our health. 

Sleep Month | Neat Nutrition. Active Nutrition, Reimagined For You.

Sleep deprivation really isn’t a laughing matter. In fact, it’s been shown to increase the chance of depression, high blood pressure, weight gain, heart disease and even decrease life expectancy. Relying on caffeine and sugar to get us through the day probably isn’t doing us any favours either…

For many, sleep really is one of the most underrated areas of their health, as we spend our weeks rushing from meeting to meeting, before hitting the gym and rushing out for drinks in the pub. We want to do try and do it all, but by instead prioritising proper rest and recovery, you could boost your athletic performance, improve your productivity at work and generally become a happier and healthier human being.

So, in honour of World Sleep Day, we’re dedicating this month to talking about just this. We’ll be discussing its impact on your mental health, performance, physical condition and general wellbeing. We’ll be providing you with everything from expert tips for drifting off, personal experiences of insomnia, our communities night-time routines, and even recipes that’ll send you to sleep or wake you up well.

There really is nothing better than a good night’s sleep, so we’re here to help you get one…
