Do you sometimes have difficulty getting enough sleep?
Do you wake up in the middle of the night and cannot get back to sleep?
Is insomnia holding you back?
Is it difficult to get to sleep?

If you answered yes to any of these questions you are a member of a large community of people with the same issues.  Figures gathered by the Australian bureau of statistics show that over 1,000,000 people in Australia alone have problems with sleep.

But help is at hand!

Sleep research shows that while some of these sleep issues have a medical issues that requires treatment, many people are simply not aware of how sleep works and how to arrange it.

Poor sleep quality can be a matter of habits or even lack of knowledge about how sleep works.

Some simple issues that cause sleep problems are;

  • A tiny switch in your brain that suppresses sleep if there is light present, so a darker room is better!
  • A moving partner or pet can disrupt your sleep!
  • Sleep requires cooling down.  A hot stuffy bedroom can keep you awake!
  • Becoming overtired can make it hard to get to sleep.
  • Sleep is habitual, so disturbing your sleeping patterns can make it hard to sleep.
  • It takes most people around 15 minutes to fall asleep.  Falling asleep quickly can mean you are sleep deprived!
  • Most people need 8-10 hours of sleep a night for optimal performance.
