We are, it seems a nation of insomniacs, there are so many articles across the press discussing the lack of sleep for everyone from new parents through to stressed middle-agers.
The truth is, most of us have high expectations when it comes to sleep, I remember when my kids were babies reading The Continuum Concept by Jean Leidloff, she is an anthropologist and studied many cultures, she found that with many tribes, sleep is not so ‘revered’, in fact when she stayed with a group of indigenous people in the jungle, she was amazed to find that the men who all slept in one room would sleep for a while, wake, tell a joke, laugh and go back to sleep! Of course I’m not suggesting that we aim for ‘broken’ sleep but we could stop stressing about having a straight eight hours unbroken. It’s also hugely important not to have screens in the bedroom, a recent study of children and teens find that just having a device in their room, even if its not switched on, makes for a worse nights sleep.
