Almost 1 in 5 people in the UK aren’t getting enough sleep
It’s recommended that adults up to the age of 64, need 7-9 hours of sleep per night. Experiencing periods of poor sleep, doesn’t usually point to a serious mental health problem. However, consistently poor sleep can affect your physical and mental health. Not getting enough “good quality sleep” can sap your energy levels, lower your mood and reduce your concentration. It can also negatively impact your relationships, immune system, work, and social life.
Fatigue can affect concentration, which when driving can have significant consequences to your performance and safety.
