Benefits of a good night's sleep

A good night’s sleep is much more than just the promise of feeling great in the morning.  There are substantial benefits through the short, medium and long terms for both our mental and physical health.

Diet and exercise have for many years been heralded as the pillars of good health.  And it is absolutely true that they are important, however, sleep is the bedrock on which those pillars stand.

Over the last 20 years, with the availability of the fMRI scanner to monitor blood flow through the brain, a vast amount of research has given neuroscientists an insight into just how important sleep is to us.

Before coming to Severn Sleep, my sleep was regularly broken and unsatisfying. It had been so for some time and was getting worse. I felt sleepy in the day and often had unintended naps. The explanation about what was happening and how things could be improved was very helpful. It’s just two weeks since the new regime started and the improvement was evident after about a week. In short, I am well satisfied. Anon
