Today marks World Menopause Day held each year on the 18th October to raise awareness of midlife women’s health.
One of the many symptoms that women experience during the menopause is sleeplessness. For many, sleepless nights can be brought on by a number of different factors from restless legs to night sweats, depression to stress.
We’ve consulted the experts and put together our six top tips to help women deal with insomnia during the menopause.
With the Olympics now underway there’ll be a fair share of sleepless nights as we catch up on all the action.
While we certainly don’t advocate staying up late every night to watch your favourite athlete, the Olympics might just be that little bit of inspiration you need to help you start that exercise routine.
We know that exercise has many benefits; sleeping better is definitely one of them.
But don’t worry, you don’t have to be an Olympian to feel the benefits of a good night’s sleep!
When our children have sleep issues it can be exhausting, affecting the whole family.
If they don’t get enough sleep, their behaviour and mood can be affected. They may become hyperactive at night leading to drowsiness during the day. Sleep affects children’s ability to learn and function, and helps their bodies fight off illness.
Ultimately, sleep helps children to rest and restore their emotional wellbeing.
