Research shows that nearly half of adults report regular sleep difficulties and that sleep deprivation is now considered to be a global pandemic with its negative impact seriously underestimated. “Good, restorative sleep is essential for physical and mental wellbeing and supports the immune, nervous, skeletal and muscular systems which all impact on mood, memory and cognitive function,” says health and nutrition expert Vanessa Ascencao.
Ascencao recommends a daily sleep schedule, practising a pre-bed routine, disconnecting from screens two hours before bed, removing stimulants such as caffeine, nicotine and alcohol, exercising regularly, following a nutritious diet and managing stress.
In addition, she recommends natural remedies that may have beneficial sleep-inducing effects, support sleep quality and induce restorative sleep even at low doses.
