Sleepwave conducted a study and found that three-quarters of those who took part wake up feeling tired at least twice a week, with an estimated 50 to 70 million people living with chronic sleep disorders.

Nancy highlighted one common behavior that can significantly disrupt your sleep and make you feel groggy for the day ahead. Checking your phone first thing in the morning or before bed can cause your brain to shift from delta waves to beta waves, skipping important alpha and theta brain waves. This can lead to a multitude of negative effects throughout the day.

Nancy suggests a vital hack to help you feel more alert throughout the day is to place your phone somewhere in your room where you can’t easily reach it. When your phone alarm goes off, get up to turn it off and then immediately make your bed to avoid the temptation of going back to sleep.

Sleepwave’s study found that 83 percent of participants said they used their snooze alarm regularly, with one in five using it every day. However, Nancy argues that this is “wasting sleep” and causing your body to “jolt” multiple times, setting you up for a bad start to the day.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all adults aim to get seven to nine hours of sleep every night. Youngsters need significantly more time in bed, with teenagers requiring eight to ten hours of sleep and children aged six to 12 years needing nine to 12 hours.

A lack of sleep has consistently been linked to chronic health problems such as sleep apnea, heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, obesity, and depression. It can also lead to insomnia, where someone routinely has trouble falling asleep.
