We all need a good night’s sleep regularly
The amount of sleep that a person needs varies from one person to another, but on average most adults need about seven to eight hours of sleep each night to feel alert and well rested. Teens need an average of about nine hours of sleep per night, and children need nine hours of nightly sleep or more, depending on their age.

Therapies to help you overcome Insomnia
- If pain is keeping you awake, look at your pain management regime. Check out our pain management clinic for support in managing or negating pain.
- Check your environment. Your bedroom should not be too hot or too cold or draughty. Your bedroom should be free from any light. Check your room for noises or other distractions. This includes a bed partner’s sleep disruptions such as snoring.
- Consider using blackout curtains, eye shades, earplugs, “white noise” machines, humidifiers, fans and other devices.
- Avoid using electronic equipment in the bedroom, including TVs, mobile phones, laptops and tablets.
- A comfy mattress is a must. Replace your old mattress is it is older than 8 years.
- Train your brain to learn that your bedroom is a peaceful, sleepy place.
- Reading at bedtime helps you to get off to sleep.
- Don’t eat too late in the evening as you risk digestion problems which may cause trapped wind, stomach ache, heartburn or indigestion.
