We tend to think of sleeping as a quiet and restful time, where we simply “unplug” and “shut down”, however this couldn’t be further from the reality! In fact, our body’s and brains are remarkably active during sleep, working hard to process, restore and strengthen various systems.

Adequate and restorative sleep provides the fuel we need to perform all of our daily life activities.

But for many people difficulty in falling asleep or staying asleep is their reality. A night of good quality sleep is a distant dream.

But can anything be done to improve sleep quality? Yes!
