Sleep is an under-estimated aspect of our lives but is particularly important for our bodies to recover.


It is recommended that on average we should aim to get 8 hours of sleep every night.

What can I do?

We can make some small adjustments to our environment which will help improve your sleep.

These things can help to improve sleep:

  • Room temperature
  • Neutral colours to create a calm environment
  • Remove blue rights from devices
  • Have comfortable bedding and clothing
  • Limit noise
  • Get into a routine
  • Eating healthy food/drink
  • Check pain medication with GP
