The latest Great British Sleep Survey makes rather grim reading.
Apparently, more than half of all adults in the UK struggle with sleep - and women are three times more likely than men to have sleep problems.
The survey interviewed 11,129 adults and found that 25% of insomnia sufferers had lived with the condition for more than 11 years. Furthermore, of those who had trouble sleeping, 77% reported having trouble with concentration, 64% struggled to be productive at work and 83% weren't happy with their mood.
Why are we still seeing such shocking statistics? How can society allow individuals to suffer from such a debilitating condition for more than 11 years?
