SleepSleep is closely linked to mental and physical well-being. Are you worried you are getting too little or too much?
In order to live well we all need regular and efficient sleep, but in our business this is not always easy to achieve. Working at night, touring, odd hours, anxiety, different time zones, very early starts, can all present challenges to sleeping.
In our survey, 2112 people said they suffered from poor or disrupted sleep and 958 said they got too little sleep. Within these responses, erratic sleep patterns, on-going insomnia, sleep deprivation or sleeping too much are all raised as adversely affecting mental health.
