Do you get enough sleep?

Do you get in to bed and then mentally work your way through your never-ending list of things to do? Do you sit and scroll through emails late at night? Do you find it difficult to fall asleep and then to stay asleep when you eventually do nod off?

Slowing down and getting a good night’s sleep can be difficult, but it’s vital for your overall health. The mind and body need sufficient time to rest and recover. Make time this month to concentrate on slowing down, relaxing, and prioritising how you sleep.
