Anxiety, stress and a busy schedule aren’t just affecting our days – they’re also impacting our nights. A good night’s sleep is vital for our health and wellbeing, but many of us aren’t able to get as much as we need.

Research shows that the average adult needs between seven and nine hours sleep every night, with some benefiting from short daytime naps.
