SLEEP

or Another Bed !



Matthew Walker in his book ‘Why We Sleep’ claims that many people today see sleeping as a weakness and put social and business demands before the need to sleep. When I was born in the 1940’s less than 8% of the population was surviving on less than 6 hours. Today almost 1 in 2 are doing so.


With only 4/5 hours sleep our natural ‘killer cells’ drop by 70% and research shows that the shorter our slumbers the shorter our life. Lack of a proper rest each night is being linked to cancer of the bowel, prostrate and breast as well as Alzheimer’s disease.
